fringe benefits

we are weary of trends, fad's just 'aint our thing really. but it's a funny thing that whole 'collective consciousness', and this season there is definitely a bit of fringe fanaticism going on. i can relate to it, i like designing and wearing big oversized shapes, there's something nice about swimming in fabric, and i can imagine the same thing goes for long lengths of tassels and fringing - that and the whole shamanistic, tribal vibe.

andrea crews has gone for touches of hot pink fringing on hoodies and bags, and, uh, real fringes (as in hair) peeping out from the neckline of sweats. romance was born as gone more tribal with it, slashing and dip dying their way through the collection - the fringed yeti eye pendant is staring at me as we speak...

so, ignore your friends, you can definitely pull off a fringe, in fact i think it's gunna suit you...

romance was born


we love yeti. how can anything so big and fluffy be scary?? they are like the big bird of the "are they/aren't they real" animal world, alongside the lockness monster, and big foot.

we also really love romance was born (go figure! we are stocking them...) the spring/summer collection 'yeti magic' from sydney based duo anna plunkett and luke sales is inspired by...uh, yeti, and ice slushee's - that'll explain the multi coloured dip dying then...

in short it's cool. in long it's super friggin totally freakin cool.
i want it all, but i'm a boy... so i'm getting a tee shirt and thinking about the tote bag. if you get in quick you may be able to pursuade me otherwise... there is only one. quick! save me from myself!!

romance was born will be in store march.
