nicolas ghesquière for callaghan, 2001.  i’m seeing a fringe moment  right now, but for the most part things aren’t really escaping the  vintagey-hippie-biker vibe.  this was the sexiest and least granola  handling of fringe i’ve ever seen, and that was in 2001.  i was working  as a merchandiser at the time, and the shop got in a whole bunch of this  stuff (as well as theyskens early collections under his own name).  it  was soft, thin suede, asymmetrically wrapped and tied, and the fringe  was sliced razor skinny, directly into the suede, not added on like most  fringe is.  i have several things from this collection but i always  wish i had one of those suede fringe dresses.
