Fringing is everywhere for Spring 2018 and it has undergone a high fashion facelift.

Designers take the typically boho detail to a new frontier with directional trimmings on everything from trench coats, crochet dresses, tailored two-pieces and body con numbers. This year designers elevated the humble fringe to eveningwear status with Balmain, Céline and Acne Studios all presenting fringing and tassels with serious swagger.

Nina Ricci made a sophisticated statement with a silhouette covered in fringing in a palette of pastel hues.


Give your wardrobe a booster and embrace Americana with a fringed, suede biker jacket. Team with a retro tee and your favourite jeans or denim shorts for a quick-fix.


Sometimes all that’s needed is a good polish to have your shoes looking as good as new. Jason Markk’s ‘Essential’ cleaning kit comes with a wooden-handled brush and gentle, biodegradable shoe cleaner that will clean up to 100 pairs. Simply dip the brush in water and apply a liberal amount of solution and scrub shoes. Wipe clean with a cloth or towel. Repeat as needed and allow to air dry. And hey presto, like new! Priced €20,
