Fringe. Even although we know it can look stunning in the right hands, we're so used to seeing it in the wrong ones that we've come to have a deep mistrust of it, which leads us to mistrust our initial judgements on the be-fringed fashion items that cross our paths.
Take this Galliano handbag, for instance. We can't help but feel that putting an arm through that strap would feel a little bit like plunging it into the depths of the jungle, not knowing what might be lurking there waiting to bite it off. This image alone is enough to make us say "thanks, but no thanks", but you may see things differently. In fact, you may think the fringing is what makes it wonderful.
Which is it? Is it a fashion crime, or is it absolutely fine? You decide!
