What is it about tassels? The opulence, the luxury, the fluidity......... they are having a fashion moment, and we love them. There is a certain amount of craftsmanship involved in creating a tassel, and thats what makes them so special.

Once mainly confined to soft furnishings and leather goods, tassels have made their way onto the catwalks in recent years, particularly a favourite at Gucci. For 2013 tassels were featured on the catwalks of Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood and Matthew Williamson.

Giving simple clothing a luxurious edge, the tassel has the ability to add glamour in an instant. An easy way to wear a tassel is in the form of jewellery. From Saint Laurent's simple black cotton tassel to Bvlgari's stunning jewelled pieces, tassel jewellery is big news.
