It was an extravaganza of mile-long fringes hanging off of handbags at the Marc Jacobs Spring 2010 RTW fashion show, another sign that there’s no stopping fringe for this year:

Fringe handbag details
In his interview, Marc Jacobs said that he was tired of seeing black and studs – things that his 80s-inspired fall 2009 RTW collection was very much full of. For his spring collection, Marc Jacobs went the opposite direction, saying that it was time to bring fashion back to “the theater, the ballet, and the opera”.
You can clearly see the direction he’s going in the white kabuki makeup, the hair in top knots, and the ruffle details on the clothes. The added length on the handbag fringes was definitely a big part of the creative thought process because their swishy, dramatic movements couldn’t have been just a coincidence. The super long fringes lent an elegant air to the entire collection and although not a difficult stretch by any means, made the models look as graceful as ballerinas with every step they took.
