Fringe is In!

I have a sneaky suspicion that the flurry of fringe bags we saw on the runway for Spring 2010 was inspired by Kate Moss carrying Genevieve Jones' fringe bag.    

But fringe has been the adornment of choice by haute bohemians since the 1960s.  Yves Saint Laurent explored his luxe hippie side with this early 1970s leather and pony hair fringed belt.

And you know how we are always saying that we buy pieces that are wearable and collectible for RARE vintage? A similar piece was also bought by the great collector of fashion, Nan Kempner, and is now a part of the Costume Institutes collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. 
Early 1970s Yves Saint Laurent fringe belt.
