It all started with Saint Laurent. Ever since the eponymous label launched the Emmanuelle bucket bag and added tassels to its cult monogrammed cross-body, both the brand and its impossibly stylish followers have put fringed accessories firmly on the fashion map.
Now the trend has trickled down to the high street, so even if you don’t have the budget for the real deal, you can still get the YSL look in your arm candy artillery.
Add a touch of boho cool to your getups with Zara’s blood-red clutch, channel models-off-duty with H&M’s shoulder bag or rev up your office accessories with Topshop’s tote.
With so many low-cost options on the horizon, it would be silly to splurge on the original. Or would it..?
