Fur and Fringe


Fur and fringe elements appear everywhere this season; from coats and vests to embelished details on dresses, bags and accessories. Not sure if these editorials exemplify my observations...but although genuine fur has remained a symbol of luxury, there's a noticable awareness and conscious effort from designers to incorporate faux fur into their collections, allowing for PETA friendly options to achieve these luxurious looks. The fringe details have also made a mark this F/W season and not just in leather/suede. Having come a long way from being prevalent staples among hippies and cowboys, decorative fringe elements have also translated into luxurious pieces this season.

Love your post - I too have noticed an abundance of fur (mainly faux) and I love it - it's a lot more luxe that usual for winter I think x

i love the fur vest!

Kate said...

I couldn't bring myself to buy real fur, but it is terribly chic, isn't it? I'm tempted to pull my grandmother's old Dior fur coat out of the closet for a spin this winter. As much as I'm opposed to killing animals for their fur, it seems a shame to let such a beautiful vintage coat go to waste.
