Fashions Fade, Style Is Eternal

Tassels & Trims

In Uncategorized on April 1, 2011 at 3:51 am

This small decoration, one which has the connotation of luxury and opulence, and was historically used as a symbol of status, both military and in religious order, is now back in full force for spring.

We’ve seen the odd appearance of tassels over the last few seasons, whether it be on handbags or shoes but they are now appearing bigger, brighter, extra long and in different textures.  They are adorning accessories such as necklaces, belts, earrings, handbags, shoes, hats and clothing.  Rope detailing is also being seen along with tassels in the form of accessories such as belts which gives it a hint of the much loved nautical trend.
