Foxy Fall Fur Fashions

 If mink is the king of furs for consumers, fox is its close runner-up. Those two furs are the fur titans of the fashion world.

Choosing a fur has as much to do with personal style as it does with lifestyle. How to decide if fox is more “you” than mink? Why not have both & call it a day!

I’m personally more partial to longer-haired furs in general, they are dense and bold and scream “luxury”.  It’s my taste, end of story. There is no right or wrong in fashion, it is simply about what makes you happy.

Fox, as plush and rich as it is, conveys luxury instantly. Plus, with the wide variety of natural coloring and mutations available, it’s hard not to find a tint that doesn’t speak to you. Add to that the rinse and full dye processes that open the doors of choice even wider and the options are almost limitless.

For the shy ones considering a first fox fur purchase, I highly recommend fox collars as well as scarves. Nothing dresses up a coat or frames a face like fox.

If you have a fun sense of humor and like to play up conventions, there is the full-fox scarf. A glamour favorite of the screen sirens of the 1930′s, 1940′s and 1950′s, it’s becoming much more common with the younger set.

Recently, I’ve observed younger women dabbling in fox fur on a large scale… the ‘Chubby’ jacket being the ‘holy grail’. This look, big in the 1980′s and prominent on the apres ski scene of top resorts including Aspen and Gstaad makes a strong statement without trying too much. It feels natural, or as natural as fashion trends feel.

Today, as designers seek to bring an ultra-luxe image to their collections they are using fox in innovative ways on accessories, as trims and for full garments. New techniques including tiling, feathering and the integration of fox strips with other fabrics have expanded the creative options available. Watch for more on fox as we cover its increasing usage in designer collections.

Mink, a True American Icon

There’s something about a mink coat that has long been ingrained in popular culture and our collective psyche. This iconic fashion item, honored in countless Hollywood films, has retained its  status ever since the post-WWII boom.

Dominique Shuminov Mahogany Mink Fur Full Length Coat"Classic" Mahogany full length mink coat by Marc Kaufman Furs

 

Years ago, that little touch of mink really played a significant role in expressing the American dream. As a successful man’s gift to his lady, the mink coat was more than a garment  ­– it was a rite of passage crowning status in society (be it on Park Avenue or in suburbia).

Today’s mink is definitely not ‘your great-grandmother’s mink’. Farmed/ranched pelts can be nearly twice as large as the ‘Mustela Vison’ found in nature, and also come in a greater variety of natural colors (from pearl to sapphire to mahogany) and mutations (cross mink or jaguar mink, for example). Innovations in manufacturing and production allow for extraordinarily creative designs that are much lighter in weight, though still warm, luxurious and durable.

American Legend, NAFA, Kopenhagen Fur, SAGA and their respective producers are at the root of the phenomenon behind today’s mink. Through highly developed veterinary science and natural selection, exceptional animal care and welfare standards, they  produce the highest quality mink used by today’s top designers and manufacturers.

Brown Mink Fur Jacket from Marc Kaufman Furs

From coats to jackets to accessories, mink fur is overwhelmingly favored as the go-to fur of choice; its inherent beauty and versatility is favored across the globe. In the U.S., close to 75% of all fur sold is mink, whether long-haired or sheared.

These days, mink fur is definitely a much more egalitarian fashion material.   This fashion staple is most often used in its natural state, but also transformed to great effects –ranging from shearing the fur into velvet pelts or corduroy ribs, as well as dying or printing the hair or leather. It is, once again, definitely not your great-grandmother’s coat anymore.

Recently, reversible mink garments are even becoming the norm for both male and female customers.  But always, mink retains its glamour, its elegance and its rich, luxurious appeal.

It can certainly be argued that mink is the go-to fur par excellence. It seems to always have been around, worn by grandma, the hipster gal next door, even worn in museum painting galleries… just go check it out for yourself.  Even sex kitten, Eartha Kitt sang about it, “Mink Schmink”, so did ‘bad ass’ punk rocker Cristina’s with “Don’t Mutilate My Mink”! Then again, who would mess with her?

In fact, to many people the word fur means mink. Just ask John Water’s sidekick, Ms. Mink Stole… if only?  Why the fascination with mink?  Well, in practical terms, it is one of the most durable and versatile furs, one that is popular with both men and women.  It lends itself to a broad variety of technologically innovative effects including weaving, knitting, shearing, laser cutting and tip-dyeing, which makes it ever-so popular with designers.

Also, since gaining its “It” status as the fur of choice with the post-WWII “upwardly mobile wives” to its position with the 1980′s “yuppie” gals, who would rush out to put their first mink coats on layaway, and even through its popularity today with designers and fashionistas around the world, mink has reigned supreme.

Will Blue Furs Be The New Black of 2014 Fur Trends?!

 Is blue the new black? "Dazzling blue" has widely been named a “key color” for 2014.

This calm and cool hue becomes even more vibrant when it involves a fur piece. Bold jewel tones and soft pastels add an ethereal vibe that transitions to any season.

Pastels

Carrying over from Spring, pastel tones from spring palettes have made quite the statement for the Fall 2013 season. Utilizing fur in these color hues flies in the face of what many people typically think of when looking for fur garments to fend off the winter chill. A nice lift in color can bring the added benefit of an uptake in mood when the winter “blues” get you down. Designers such as Badgley Mischka and Emilio Pucci created fur looks to offset the standard warmer autumn tones of the past.

Jewel Tones

Regal and stately by nature, the deeper variations of blue scream refinement and polish. Designers such as Michael Kors and Oscar de la Renta have utilized this beautiful blue to add pop to their collections. Not only does it add pop to an otherwise conservative look but it also makes creating a monochrome look effortless.

Prints

Random, psychedelic and without any clear reason behind them, today’s prints are whimsical and youthful. One of the surprise acts of the season was the re-invention of camouflage by way of mink. Mixing sheared furs with longer hair varieties provided bold textural contrasts that stood out on the runways.

Classic Fur Silhouettes with a Contemporary Twist

 

Dominique Shuminov in Vertical Red Fox Fur Stroller

Striped Red Fox Fur Stroller from Marc Kaufman Furs in NYC

Fur’s global popularity can’t be overlooked, much less dismissed. The international fashion world is showcasing fur’s luxe characteristics in extraordinary creative adaptations… and on more occasions than not these looks are direct celebrations of classic looks that were popular decades ago.

Révillon, 1937 | Old School Classics | Vintage Flair for Today

Révillon Editorial, Fémina, 1937

We’re not talking about replication, but rather reissuing classic cuts and proportions with a contemporary feel. Modern technology is making today’s furs a fraction of their past weight; they are also more supple and look sportier as a result. Dressing-down but keeping chic is now a new style in and of itself, ditching sweats for a fur piece is the name of the game.

Old School Classics

What designers do so adroitly is re-edit perfected designs. Old school savoir-faire is always a “must” study, things done 50 or 75 years ago are surprisingly modern and can still read avant-garde at times. That’s the one thing that makes fashion so exciting season after season. What will we rediscover?

The Fur Scarf Phenomenon

These past few seasons we witnessed fur fashion designers reinterpret the vest into a myriad of lengths, shapes, and overall use that ranged from the classic men’s third suit item to cuirass-like shapes and even the popular coat-length versions. The creative baton has now passed on and the new focus is the neck region.

Fashion inspiration can come from many directions. References that are particularly strong and marketable allow a woman to identify with values of confidence, achievement, strength and talent.  So it is no surprise that those trailblazers who made history and helped to redefine the modern women for generations to come serves as especially good reference points.

Aviatrix

Enter the aviators, heroes who have served in combat and carved new pathways for women. Of course, more than a few of these ladies weren’t your average “Jane”; many came from privileged backgrounds that allowed them to partake in the rarefied pastime of flight. When things got tough, many of these ladies took their skills to new heights and served dutifully during WWII – the same way many of the earlier socialites who knew how to drive when it was a rarity served as ambulance drivers during WWI.

From the boyfriend trend to the boyfriend fit, the masculine influence on women’s fashion is inescapable and  the aviator jacket –or should we really call it “aviatrix jacket” – is the perfect way to show you’re at the top of the trend.

New York Fashion Week Fur Trends

 Fashion Week in New York is off and running with fashionistas fighting the ice and snow and frigid temperatures to descend on Lincoln Center and venues across The Big Apple to see the best of American fashion. If anyone had any doubt about fur’s popularity, the streets were filled with so much fur that it appears to have become a uniform for the fashionable set. The Fur Love wasn’t lost on the designers. For those who gradually experimented with fur in past collections, their current approach was bolder and wisely handled with full-looks, including accessories.

Fur fashion is contemporary, cutting edge and versatile and every fur garment, accessory or home-ware item is as unique as the owner.  What ever your budget or taste there is something for everyone.

Fur design is currently going through a global Renaissance, reinterpreting the medium with a fresh outlook embracing modernity like haute couture does regularly with daywear. It is nearly impossible to pinpoint a fur trend other than to focus on its worldwide appeal. Fur is not a trend but a fashion staple; the trends come with fashion cycles and garment reinterpretations.  Nowhere is this more apparent than the Pre-Fall 2014 collections, which are filled with extraordinary fur fashion creativity.

Mink is currently getting a new wave of fans and becoming a go-to choice for chic little pieces that manage to retain an elegant formality while being sporty;  longhaired mink is being tamed into subdued sophistication, keeping a potential rock n’ roll caché alive while being polite. Everything is on the menu nowadays; everything is about style and investment value.

Easy chic might simply describe the pre-Fall 2014 collections to a “T”. The strongest emphasis of these mini-collections was daywear and transitional daywear-to-eveningwear looks. With the outerwear, fur reigns supreme while emphasizing  thrilling, sporty interpretations.

There was something deceptively historical with pre-Fall 2014 in the way it looked at the future, reminding us of post-WWII haute couture looks (zippers and snap closures, peacoats and blousons started popping-out back then). Today’s shearling treatments are adding a frisson of excitement by modernizing looks.

The most modern trend of all is definitely the reinterpretation of staple pieces like sweaters and sweats that are getting fur treatments. The looks are surprisingly relaxed and don’t come off as finicky. This trend is going to continue for the long haul and become a wardrobe “must-have”.

All in all, pre-Fall 2014 signaled an interesting fashion direction with a focus on sophisticated casual staple pieces like sweats and a blurring of formal conventionality with transitional daywear. Also, coats and jackets are coming in a multitude of material hybrids that are opening the gates for Fall 2014-Winter 2015 with many surprises.

Designer Fur Trends Fall 2014/Winter 2015

 

A Study in Contrasts | Fur Trends Fall 2014-Winter 2015

By FurInsider on April 3, 2014 in Billboard, Featured Articles, Trend Watch
 

These past Fall 2014-Winter 2015 collections are turning a style page. We are witnessing a global design trend that fuses a streetwear aesthetic with the more refined characteristics of luxury fashion to create modern, fashion-forward looks. It is a study of contrasts — Fur pattern contrasts, light and dark, sleek and softly textured, raw and finished. It might take a little while for some of these garments to translate into the greater fashion consciousness, but their influence is obvious and palpable.

KTZ – Fall 2014-Winter 2015

We rode the wave of color-blocking in furs a few collection cycles ago, geometric compositions and material juxtapositions more recently. Now designers take fur in new directions, creating canvases of different furs and fabrics in varying colors. The result is a bit bohemian, a bit edgy, but very urban chic and sophisticated.

Fendi - Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Fendi – Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Grinko - Fall 2014-Winter 2015

High-tech & fur pattern contrasts!

Fur plays a role in these garment constructions as key accents. This plays equally well whether used in patchwork applications or elegantly [and not so elegantly] reworked ‘material-blocking’. The combinations of sportswear’s high-tech textiles with furs are some of the most interesting examples this season and their democratic profile will give this trend a leg to stand on for seasons to come.

Cividini - Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Cividini – Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Francesco Scognamiglio - Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Francesco Scognamiglio – Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Another twist? Designers are challenging conventions by applying raw-edged pelts onto tailored looks. Some are cleverly layered to emphasize the avant-garde aspect, whereas others go further as to incorporate this “Raw” quality into the construction of the garment for a statement effect.

Alexander McQueen - Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Alexander McQueen – Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Givenchy - Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Gareth Pugh – Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Lanvin - Fall 2014-Winter 2015

Lanvin – Fall 2014-Winter 2015

We see this concept and its variety of finishes as a trend to follow. As the ultimate luxe material fur has a polished elegance, but as the first natural material worn by mankind it also has a rugged, unrefined sensibility. Referencing both these viewpoints in design makes this an exciting (and even logical) fashion direction.

24-Karat Gold Infused Leather Handbags Furs

Lust It: 24-Karat Gold Infused Leather Handbags and Furs

by Samantha Lim | 0 Comments

Photo: Courtesy of Mi Piaci

 

Italian luxury brand Mi Piaci has patented a nanotechnology that manipulates 24-karat gold and infuses it into a luxury collection of fur and leather goods. The revolutionary technique has been named Precious Surface, and unlike the topical treatments of gold foiling or gold leafing, it actually infuses real gold directly into the textile, creating a surface that is quite literally worth its weight in gold.

 

“Each type of surface takes various amounts of gold to achieve the best results," managing director Mackenzie Valk told ELLE.com. "Our team of artisans have spent years honing this skill and come from lifetimes spent in the fashion and jewelry industries.”

 

The process begins with gold bullion slabs. Then, gold atoms blend with the surface of the materials, leaving the texture of the silk, fur, or leather unaltered minus a new solid gold color.

 

“Our customer is looking for something new, something exciting, a way to differentiate themselves in a marketplace that is overly saturated with handbags clad with designer logos,” Valk said. The range includes classic top-handle carriers, sleek clutches ($1,695–$17,495), and leather-and-alligator cuffs ($265-$465). The fur collection (starts at $20,000) was designed in collaboration with Roberto Masci, a Chanel and Fendi fur veteran, and consists of one-of-a-kind fur coats, jackets, gloves, handbags, and scarves. The brand has done one-off custom gold furs for Fendi and custom gold handbags for Gucci, but this is their first marketable retail collection.

Fur is Back in Fashion

Fur is Back in Fashion with a Vengeance: Will You Embrace It?

 

Supporters call it “natural” and “sustainable.” Opposers say it’s cruel and inhumane. But whichever side you fall on, there’s no denying that fur had a major presence on the fall 2013 runways this past month, being hailed as one of the biggest trends for next season.

Striped, dyed, embossed, and manipulated, the sheer amount of real animal fur we saw this fashion month was more overwhelming than we remembered from seasons past. We scoured through every single photo of every single collection that walked this season and found that a startling 70% of the designers who showed during fashion month used fur in at least one look. Several collections, including those by Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton, incorporated fur into over 20 looks. Others still, like J.Mendel, Marni, and Giambattista Valli, used fur in more than 30.

And then there was Fendi. Karl Lagerfeld apparently had some fuzzy vision happening while designing the Italian label’s fall line: Every single look from the 40+ piece collection featured multiple instances of fur usage, including (but certainly not limited to) coats, handbags, sunglasses, shoes, and even mohawk-esque hair pieces made of dyed fox. Needless to say, there were zero PETA pie-ings reported.

So is it safe to say that fur has finally fallen back into favor? Wearing fur has always been a hot button issue. Once considered the most regal and luxurious of materials, the animal rights movement first brought attention to the alleged wrongdoings of the fur trade in the late 1970s. In that same vein, the Internet age has beckoned an onslaught of viral anti-fur videos showing the horrific living (and dying) conditions of innocent animals skinned alive for their pelts–inspiring a new generation to think anti-fur. Veganism, more prevalent than ever amongst health-freaks and animals lovers alike (see: Anne Hathaway), promotes a lifestyle completely devoid of eating–or wearing–anything that once had a face. Not to mention the city of West Hollywood, California’s historic ban on the selling of fur products, slated to go into effect this September.

According to Keith Kaplan, executive director of the Fur Information Council of America, the case against fur is due mostly to a lack of education–and the fashion world is at the forefront of changing those misconceptions. “Designers have done their homework,” he told us via email. “They have come to recognize that the fur industry is committed to the humane and responsible treatment of animals and that no industry is more highly regulated at local, national, and international levels.”

Kaplan went on to describe fur as an eco-friendly option, calling it a “natural, renewable, biodegradable resource”–and thus a smarter choice than synthetic fur, which he says is petroleum-based, non-renewable, and manufactured in such a manner that “releases harmful chemicals into the atmosphere.”

Furthermore, “fur has a unique and unparalleled richness and texture that even the best of faux cannot replicate,” says Kaplan–which may explain why Marc Jacobs chose to show almost cartoon-like, stuffed animal-looking stoles for fall, made of very real animal fur.

Of course Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour has made no secret of her penchant for the real stuff and is often credited with introducing it back into fashion. Countless verbal and physical attacks from anti-fur protesters (including a raccoon carcass-bombing during dinner) haven’t dissuaded the first lady of fashion from using it in her editorials since she began her rein in the late ’80s.

But were the fall runways a sign of the fashion industry going green, or something more sinister? PETA‘s Danielle Katz told us that fur-friendly designers, such as Karl Lagerfeld, “use dead animals for shock value” and that, as far as the general public is concerned, “fur remains as popular as a cold sore.”

Katz could be on the right track about the latter. After all, it was our shock at the prevalence of fur at shows like Lagerfeld’s Fendi that lead us to investigate fur’s current social standing in the first place. As for the public’s opinion, is the general populace really looking for a tube of Abreva big enough to wipe out the fur industry–or is the fashion industry simply responding to society’s fever for fur?

We consulted data polling site Gallup.com for the cold, hard, fur facts. Gallup’s most recent survey on the subject, conducted in May 2012, asked participants whether they considered wearing fur morally acceptable. Of the 1024 people included, a resounding 60% saw fur as morally acceptable–a 4% increase from the same poll taken one year earlier. However, in 2012, only 35% believed fur to be morally wrong–a 4% decrease from the 39% who were totally anti-fur in 2011.

There are of course, as with any poll, various factors at play here, including the age, education, and income of the participants. But if these numbers say anything, it’s that fur’s approval rating has only increased in the past year–and the fashion industry, per usual, is totally in tune.

But what say you? Will you be clamoring for real-fur everything next season and turn your cheek at your house pets’ third cousins, or would you rather save the animals but potentially upset Mother Nature in doing so? Can there ever be a middle-ground when it comes to fur in fashion? We want to hear what you think.

Weddings dresses with Fur Trim! Adorable! Fur for Wedding

Here comes the bride (in fur) at Austrian royal wedding

The happy couple poses for photographs after their wedding at the Basilica of Saint Epvre in Nancy, France, on Dec. 29.

Adelaide Drape-Frisch, the newest Archduchess of Austria, looked a lot like a Russian bride from the pages of "Anna Karenina" when she wed Christoph of Hapsbourg-Lorraine, Archduke of Austria, on Dec. 29.

Adelaide Drape-Frisch smiles with her father Philippe Drape-Frisch and her sister Alienor Drape-Frisch in front of the Saint Epvre Basilica before her wedding.

While 24-year-old Christoph has royal roots as the son of Archduke Karl Christian of Habsbourg-Lorraine and Princess Marie Astrid of Luxembourg, 22-year-old Adelaide is the daughter of French diplomat Philippe Drape-Frisch.

The groom's mother, Archduchess Marie-Astrid of Austria (left), donned a blue suit once worn by her mother, Grand Duchess Josephine, to her son's nuptials.

But no one would've known she lacked a royal pedigree last Saturday, when she looked luminous in a wintry white gown with fur flourishes designed by French couturier Diane Lelys. 

Pierre Mathis / MAXPPP via EPA file

Christoph and Adelaide Drape-Frisch met at a Catholic school where they spent time between high school and college.

The young couple tied the knot in a civil ceremony at the Hôtel de Ville in Nancy, France, on Friday before walking down the aisle in a religious service at the Basilica of Saint-Epvre in Nancy with more than 1,000 guests in attendance. 

May 2013 bring many more royal weddings (and babies) our way!
