This season, long forgotten fur, that used to remind us of our grand-mother’s wardrobe, or bring to mind freezing winters in Moscow, is experiencing its big come back. This fluffy fabric, is making its return in all colours, forms and shapes. From long, knee-length coats, through waistcoats to hats & collars, fur pieces have already overtaken the catwalks & high-street collections for AW12.
As a big animal lover, I’d not dare to suggest that the fur needs to be natural, quite the opposite… Available in nearly all fashion houses, artificial fur (some of which are just as pretty and soft as the natural ones) is just as trendy and… will keep you out of PETA’s radar 😉 So don’t spend a fortune on natural pieces, save a few innocent lives and proudly wear fur’s fluffy imitations.
For those, who like me, are not aiming for fur-head-to-toe look, I suggest to select just one fluffy element (hat, snood or even bag!), which will keep you on top of trends, but will help you avoid Joan Collins effect 🙂 For the brave ones – fur, fur away.. and wear as many pieces as you like! 🙂
