The 1970s symbolise the decade of flair. A time lauded for the other type of flare, reflective aviators, suede waistcoats and fringing. And as the years wore on, most of these motifs have fallen by the catwalks' proverbial wayside … but not fringing. Tassels and buckskin have secured themselves a spot among trends that are classic and are now a go-to for designers looking for a crowd-pleaser. At festivals, fringed goods are out in force, and hippie-luxe outfits donned by Kate Moss, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner at Glastonbury and Coachella set the tone for the rest of the season. Replicating the trend has been simpler and cheaper this year thanks to the launch of H&M's Coachella collection, which blends Woodstock with a touch of the 21st century, offering plenty of shimmying trims on ruched crops and suede satchels. Here are five fringed bags that top our list this season.

For high fashion fans, Burberry Prorsum has taken the trend by the horns with a fringed bucket bag (HK$25,000), available in maroon and camel. The bag's short, thick tiers of deeply dyed suede add texture to an outfit, and it has a generous interior for a bucket bag.

Tory Burch has embraced the woven look with this white macramé tote (HK$6,593) featuring a lengthy fringe of matching tassels.

Rebecca Minkoff has jumped on the backpack bandwagon with a bag (HK$3,890) in red suede and fringing, which touts practical front pockets and the brand's signature dog clip.

New York designers Proenza Schouler have taken on a slightly punkier, city-styled version with a small, cross body satchel (HK$13,600) in black distressed leather, hung with black and blue fringing to match the blue lining.

Known for her rustic flare, Isabel Marant's Shiloh clutch(HK$8,590) takes on an ethnic print in seasonal hues, with dangling fringes around the edges of the bag's outer fold. An interior zip compartment helps to keep things in order.
