Time is ready for a fractal version of pied de poule; it is almost “in the air”. Taking inspiration from the Cantor set, and using the analysis of the classical pattern, we obtain a family of elegant new fractal Pied de Poules. We calculate the fractal dimension and develop an attractive fashion item based on the new pattern, to be showed at Bridges.
