Fur Coats Fur Jackets Sales Booming

Fur trade booming after swing from fashion faux pas to catwalk favourite

Figures show farmers stepping up production to meet soaring demand for mink, sable, fox and ferret pelts

They are not alone in falling off the anti-fur wagon. Figures from the International Fur Federation show that the industry is enjoying another year of considerable growth. The demand for mink, sable, fox and ferret has soared and farmers have stepped up production.

In 2013/14, 87.2m mink pelts were produced around the world, worth a total of £2.2bn, with 35m produced by China alone.

China also remains one of the biggest producers of fox pelt, and together with Finland was responsible for 91% of the 7.8m fox furs produced globally.

The figures – the first to show a breakdown of different pelts – follow on from research by the IFF last year which valued the global fur trade at more than £26bn.

On the British catwalks last year, more than 60% of shows featured fur, and at New York fashion week the figure topped 70%. While luxury labels such as Fendi have a long history of featuring real fur in their shows, fur is increasingly being used by newer brands as well. In New York, the up-and-coming label Cushnie Et Ochs said fur was its favourite material of the season, adding that it was “not ashamed”.

This month Karl Largerfeld said he would be putting on a special “couture fur” show to mark his 50th anniversary of working for Fendi. “For me, fur is Fendi and Fendi is fur, fun furs” he said. “Fendi is my Italian version of creativity. The Fendi haute fourrure fashion show is the opportunity to stage the royal furs of furs.”

He told the New York Times: “For me, as long as people eat meat and wear leather, I don’t get the message. It’s very easy to say no fur, no fur, no fur, but it’s an industry. Who will pay for all the unemployment of the people if you suppress the industry of the fur?”

In the 80s it was a serious fashion faux pas to step out in real fur, but today’s celebrities are rarely seen out of it. Rihanna and Rita Ora have recently been pictured in real mink coats, and Kim Kardashian dressed her one-year-old daughter North West in what was thought to be a $3,500 (£2,300) crystal fox fur coat at last month’s New York fashion week.

Lady Gaga made a Naomi Campbell-esque turnabout on the issue. Having initially denounced fur, she was later pictured in a full-length coat made of white pelt, and went on to say: “You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.”

Mark Oaten, CEO of the International Fur Federation, said he was unsurprised by the growth in productionas the taboo around wearing real fur was fading into irrelevance. “We knew from the catwalks that fur is certainly being used much more by designers and from some of the retail figures, which can be patchy and difficult, that the sales are going strongly,” he said. “So with this increase in demand, farmers are deciding to invest more in fur farms and increase production.”

Oaten, a former Liberal Democrat MP, said Asia and Hong Kong remained the big players in the fur trade, both in terms of demand and production, but emphasised there was a shift towards buyers in America and Europe.

“Designers appear to be embracing it, customers appear to be embracing it and we certainly find the younger generation have less of an issue with fur than the younger generation of the 1980s,” he said.

“But it’s changed rapidly, even in the past three or four months. We’ve seen a change of patterns of the kind of consumers in Asia. Six months ago I would have said Beijing and Shanghai are really hot markets, but now we are seeing a shift away to the second- and third-tier cities in China as well. We’ve also seen an enormous increase in America because fur has had an incredibly busy runway and it has also been extraordinarily cold.”

In the UK, members of the British Fur Trade Association reported a 20% increase in sales last year. The association’s chief executive, Mike Moser, said the growth was being driven as much by younger generations as by foreign millionaires.

“It’s hot stuff because fur is being used in a real fun way in fashion now,” he said. “It’s more accessible for young people because of the increase of fur trims on coats and fur accessories.

“The BFTA runs an annual competition for design students using fur and this year we’ve seen a 50% increase in the number of students taking art. They just want to use fur in their designs which proves there such a strong interest in the younger generation.”

While the fur industry in countries such as Canada, the US and Europe remains heavily regulated, concerns remain over China, which is much more lax about the welfare of animals. Oaten conceded it was a concern for the IFF and said cleaning up the Chinese fur trade remained a priority.

“Obviously with so much mink coming from China, one of my big priorities is to make sure that they understand what the requirements are for welfare,” he said. “I was in China a couple weeks ago meeting with government officials. They have already adopted Council of Europe guidelines on welfare and we’ve had a long dialogue with them to implement even stronger welfare protocols. The difficulty does still lie in ensuring these regulations are always enforced in such a large country.”

Oaten said he was a personal fan of pelts. “I use a lot of fur for interiors,” he said. “Though I’ve not yet found a fur coat that suits me.”

Fur Is Back Big Time Marc Kaufman Furs NYC

Fur Is Back Big Time — Here’s Why

Jenna Sauers
Jenna Sauers

As we recently learned, the fur industry is booming. Global fur sales rose by 70% from 2000 to 2010. Annual sales of fur pelts reached $15-16 billion, according to the fur industry’s trade association, during the winter of 2010-11 (pelts are sold during a season that runs from around October through March, and the 2010-11 season is the most recent for which figures were available). An industry spokesperson attributed the rise primarily to two factors: designers who have incorporated small amounts of fur into a wider array of garments, making fur an option in warmer climates, and “a younger generation whose passion is not animal rights.”

This development is surprising to anyone who remembers the highly publicized battles over fur and animal welfare of the 1980s and 1990s. Back then, shocking depictions of the cruelty inherent in fur production — often in the form of polemical and, critics said, misleading videos produced by pro-animal-rights fringe groups — were only starting to reach a wider audience. Protesters were omnipresent at fashion week and public pressure to avoid fur was high. Anna Wintour was served a skinned raccoon at the Four Seasons. It seemed like every week another of your favorite celebrities was stripping off for a PETA ad. By turn of the millennium, the moral issue of fur seemed settled, and fur itself seemed like a relic of a bygone age — something that your grandparents’ generation had misguidedly believed was okay, like golliwog dolls or smoking during pregnancy. The idea of wearing something so thoroughly politicized and icky as fur just seemed ugly. Popular culture kept up with the times: when Lily Esposito chided Mary Cherry for her mink coat on Popular, Mary Cherry looked like the spoiled, amoral wench that she was.

Fur Is Back Big Time — Here's Why

But during the 2000s, things changed. Designers who hadn’t previously shown fur on the runway began showing it; designers who had previously shown some, showed more. Designers who had publicly pledged to abjure fur, like Giorgio Armani, went back on their word — as did a good number of those overexposed PETA “faces.” (Naomi Campbell even went so far as to do an ad campaign for the furrier Dennis Basso.) Fur began to creep back into fashion magazine pages. 1990s grunge and minimalism gave way to 2000s bling and ostentation. And now, fur is back in a big way. This year’s fall runways? Among the designers who showed fur and/or shearling were Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Prada, Rebecca Minkoff, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tom Ford, Vivienne Westwood, and Yves Saint Laurent.

Fur Is Back Big Time — Here's Why

This reversal is not merely the result of a cultural trend meeting its inevitable backlash. It’s also a story of economics, and of the fur industry’s quiet battle to rebrand its product as sustainable, natural, and luxurious.

Fashion is still a very top-down business. A fur coat in a designer’s fall collection might retail for $10,000 and be ordered by a handful of stores; but that fur coat’s value in visibility for fur as a whole helps sell thousands of $60 rabbit-trimmed Michael Kors hats and $400 coyote-trimmed men’s jackets at Macy’s. To help make fur a trend that pops up in magazine editorials and online, fur suppliers often sponsor designers, giving them free product to incorporate into their seasonal collections and even sending them on junkets. In 2010, the New York Times reported that one Scandinavian supplier, Saga Furs, gave fur to Cushnie et Ochs, Thakoon, Brian Reyes, Wayne, Derek Lam, Proenza Schouler and Richard Chai. It also paid for three designers to go on a junket:

Last summer, for example, the designers Alexander Wang and Haider Ackermann, plus Alexa Adams and Flora Gill of Ohne Titel were flown to Copenhagen for weeklong visits to the design studios of Saga Furs, a marketing company that represents 3,000 fur breeders in Finland and Norway. Saga Furs regularly sponsors such design junkets.

Another fur supplier, the North American Fur Auctions, gave furs that year to Bibhu Mohapatra and Prabal Gurung. “We want to make sure fur is on the pages of magazines around the world,” said the NAFA’s director of marketing at the time. “The way to do that is to facilitate the use of fur by designers.”

Fur Is Back Big Time — Here's Why

Fur industry organizations sponsor design contests at top fashion schools, including Parsons and the Fashion Institute of Technology. (So does PETA, which enjoyed some institutional support at Parsons back when Tim Gunn was dean of its fashion school.) The prizes are often lavish, including free international travel and tens of thousands of dollars worth of product — perfect for a young designer who needs backing to launch a line. It’s no accident that fur is increasingly present on the runways: the fur industry has spent years patiently working to re-legitimize and de-stigmatize its product in the eyes of a new generation of fashion tastemakers, and fur’s current boom is the fruit of their labors. A 2007 ad campaign even called fur “the natural, responsible choice.” Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet, herself a vegan, wears fur and uses it in her collection. “It doesn’t make sense,” she once admitted. “Something about putting it inside me feels really barbaric. Something about wearing it just feels a little glamorous.”

Fur Is Back Big Time — Here's Why

Established designers like Zac Posen now see no downside to collaborating with fur brands — c.f. Posen’s collection for Pologeorgis. Even a series of minor scandals over fur labeling hasn’t served to set back the industry.

Five years ago, PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk said that only “old fogey designers like Karl Lagerfeld and so on” used fur, and that fashion’s new generation just wasn’t that into fur. Clearly, Newkirk was wrong.

In the past decade, fur has gone from being a kind of ethical third rail to just one point on the developing moral questionnaire of modern living. Maybe you care more about the environmental degradation, animal cruelty, and labor issues brought up by the leather tanning industry, or factory farms. Perhaps you think nothing of wearing vintage fur because to throw out a useful garment smacks of waste. Maybe you believe, like Silvia Fendi, that real fur is preferable to fake because, as she put it, “We did a collection of fake fur several years ago but found it is the most polluting thing for the environment.” Perhaps you feel a little like Kelis, who concluded a long MySpace rant against PETA by weighing concern over animal welfare to concern for the human beings who toil in sweatshops and in the fields. “Underpaid minorities picking your vegetables, now that’s fine for you right?” asked Kelis. “Don’t waste my time trying to save the dang chipmunk!”

Whatever the case, fur is back in a big way. And it seems to be here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Furs Furs Furs all over the Designer Runways

There Is So. Much. Fur. On the Runway. 

Chris Brown is obviously just trolling us now.
 
At the end of New York Fashion Week this February, there was the usual onslaught of sing-song-y articles parsing the trends. “Fur!” they all chirped, every one. Fur, fur, fur, fur, fur!

It was everywhere. Fur coats, sure, but also fur scarves, fur stoles, fur shirts, fur shoulder pads, fur vests. Fox fur was most prevalent, although some mink, and in the case of Marc Jacobs, skunk. Reviewers vomited a steady stream of glowing modifiers to flesh out the trend, some furs belonging to the “bohemian/rustic/artisanal” end of the spectrum, others deemed “high ’70s glamour.” Certain designers, like Michael Kors, have always used fur in their collections—but even brands like Suno, which had never gone down the fur route (and whose collection I fawned over here), featured a few mink-accented looks.

[Clockwise: Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Cushnie et Ochs, Dennis Basso, Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, Prabal Gurung, Suno, Wes Gordon, Zac Posen]

There Is So. Much. Fur. On the Runway. 

Some of these treatments are, admittedly, beautiful. Prabal’s ombre fox fur gilet is chic as hell, and as Fashion Week traveled overseas to London, Roksanda (second to last, below) sent some stunning, otherworldly creations down the runway.

There Is So. Much. Fur. On the Runway. 

And in Milan, the fur parade continued. Some designers only showed one or two pieces; others, like Marni, were more heavy-handed.

[From left: Gucci, Marni, Philipp Plein, Emilio Pucci]

There Is So. Much. Fur. On the Runway. 

And we can’t forget Fendi! The absolute glut of furs Lagerfeld sent down the runway at Fendi, including some fully hideous fur boots, is but a sampling of what’s coming; the label will be presenting a “haute fourrure” show during Paris Couture week in July dedicated entirely to fur.

There Is So. Much. Fur. On the Runway. 

There Is So. Much. Fur. On the Runway. 

This is obscene.

And as Fashion Month pushes on to Paris, it’s something we should all be talking about. Faux fur is better than it’s ever been, but it’s still not ruling the runways. The fur trade is currently valued at over $40 billion dollars. Furriers, as the New York Times reported a few years ago, essentially bribe young designers into experimenting with their wares, forging career-long ties.According to the International Fur Federation, where such numbers can be found, China is currently the world’s largest importer of fur, closely followed by North America, Europe and Russia. Between 2000 and 2010, fur sales rose 70%. Nobody in fashion appears to give a shit about PETA—and why would anyone considered a tastemaker pay attention to an organization known for campaigns like this?

We’ve been here before. Every once and a while, an article like the one I’m writing right now has attempted to question the fur frenzy, shaking its tiny proverbial fists against the giant fashion cog that transforms an ugly death into something clean and covetable.

But nothing really changes, despite the fact that designers like Stella McCartney have paved a gorgeous alternate path, and despite the fact that the inner workings of the fur industry are a fairly well-known phenomenon.

(In case a refresher is needed: A recent investigation found designers including Fendi and Alice & Olivia to be sourcing furs from a farm in China in which raccoon dogs and foxes were kept in piles of their own feces, electrocuted, and skinned alive. In Finland, where nearly four million foxes, polar foxes, minks, polecats and racoon dogs are raised and killed for their fur on farms, arctic foxes are typically kept in 8.6 square ft. wire cages (and minks in 2.7 sq. ft cages). An investigation into Finnish fur farms found frequent cases of open wounds, leg and ear injuries, cannibalism, lame animals, gum infections, dead animals left in cages with living animals, and more.)

The International Fur Federation, on the “Ethics” section of its own website, essentially waves its hand at the problem of animal cruelty, noting that “the main goal of many anti-fur groups is to deny other members of society the right to make their own individual choice.”

Individual rights are cool. But there’s no need to flex them by wearing a dead animal whose suffering has been rendered completely unnecessary by the highly imitable nature of its pelt.

Did Kim Kardashian spend $3,500 on fur coat for North West? Marc Kaufman Furs NYC

Did Kim Kardashian spend $3,500 on fur coat for North West?

kim north west coat.jpg

North West’s wardrobe is getting pricey.

On Wednesday, North braved freezing New York City temperatures wearing a fur coat as she trotted behind her reality-star mom, Kim Kardashian.

Jody Wolfe and Marc Kaufman, of Kaufman Furs, identified the tot’s coat as being made from crystal fox fur and estimated it to cost about $3,500 (if real).

“It looks nice on the baby,” quipped Kaufman, who added his celebrity clients include Diddy, 50 Cent and Janet Jackson.

Although it’s unclear if the fur is real or faux, PETA’s Senior Vice President Lisa Lange told Page Six in a statement: “Kids are naturally drawn to animals and sympathetic to their plight, and there’s no reason to think that North is any different. If the fur coat that she’s been dressed in is real, animals have suffered for vanity, something that we’re sure neither North nor any little girl her age would support.”

Beyond her fur, the 20-month-old mini-fashionista wore head-to-toe black, capping off her moody look with black Doc Martens.

When photographed without North, Kardashian, 34, kept her fur-collar black coat open revealing her hip-hugging black pencil skirt and black corset top with a plunging neckline.

Karadashian slipped into the coat as she guided her daughter through the paparazzi.

Why so much glam for a Wednesday night? The fashionable mother-daughter duo attended Kanye West’s Adidas fashion show in Soho.

Synthetic materials like polyester, nylon, fiborfill, holofill, or even polar fleece are a close second BUT are still not as warm as an animal fur coat or even a fur lining. As long as animal fur retains superior warmth and moisture resistant qualities to man made fibers, they will remain extremely valuable. Fur is one of the warmest insulators known to man and it is highly used for winter wear. Fur is extremely warm and will keep you toasty during these cold winter months. Certain fur types such as sheepskin or fox are especially insulating.

Fur is no longer just for warmth on the coldest of days, furs has moved into the hot “must have” fashion category and are worn from day to night and across all seasons. Mink is a great choice for a blend of style and weather-resistance.

Not only are fur garments much warmer than garments made from synthetic fibers, they also possess unique qualities in the deep cold.  For example, fox fur does not ice up or frost up in sub-zero temperatures which is why its used in arctic conditions. A hugely popular fur is the luxuriously full-furred fox. With long, lustrous guard hairs and a soft, thick underfur, fox is wonderfully fluffy and ideal for high-fashion trim on collars, cuffs, wraps, headbands as well as show-stopping vests, jackets and coats – you name it, fox fur makes everything lusciously warm and beautiful.
