I must admit that I’m not a fan of real fur unless it’s absolutely warranted for climatic reasons, but others feel differently, including some of the designers that showed their Fall / Winter 2010 collections in New York last week. Vena Cava included a number of fur stoles in her collection, and Peter Som added neon bright furs over printed dresses. Fortunately for those of us who aren’t into real fur, there are faux fur options galore, and you’ve probably already seen some of the bright faux furs in the current Fall / Winter season.
So if you’ve already bought a few of these in the form of vests or “chubby” coats, hang onto them at the end of the season because likely as not, they’ll be popular again next year. Another trend that showed up on the runways was the combination of feathers and fur. While the bright faux fur vests can go as casual as you want, the fur and feathers combo is definitely more luxurious and dressy.
