On The Fringe

On The Fringe


I am on the fringe about the fringe.


Everywhere I turn I am confronted by a flare and tormented by a tassle.

Bianca Jagger And Cecil Beaton

Bianca Jagger and Cecil Beaton, I could not resist.

I believe this photograph was taken in 1978 and it proves to me that elegance and monochrome dressing never dates. Wouldn’t you agree?
