As regular readers know, my opinion has started to soften a bit toward fringe. Maybe it’s just because the initial shock of the trend has worn off and now I’m used to the idea, or maybe it’s just my brain moving on to find other things to rage about, but I’ve seen more and more fringe bags that I like lately. Most of them have a few things in common: almost all of them are black with silver hardware, and the fringe is usually short and a bit more subdued.
Which is probably why I like the Furla Halley Fringe Bag so much – it fits those two criteria perfectly. It’s full of fringe, but it’s short and in neat, organized rows which helps to temper a bit of the madness that fringe can create. The rest of the bag is subdued and sophisticated, with understated hardware and a cute twisted handle, which I think provides the perfect counterpoint. I would, of course, remove the extra strap. Because this is me we’re talking about here. Buy through Bluefly for $468.
