The Glambo

These seasoned fashion lovers are usually the most discriminating and difficult to shop for on your Holiday list. We call them Glambos because they are militant about high-style. You know them, they’re the ones who have just about E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G in multiples and look so darn polished even rolling out of bed. Suspending any budget limitations, here’s some top tier ideas that will definitely hit a home run with these lucky elite.

Just like being a little bit country and a litle rock n’ roll, these outdoor-loving types know how to appear casual, classic and chic with minimal effort. Always looking for a reason to bond with nature, these land, sea and slope lovers rejoice in getting their hands dirty and delight in breaking a “good sweat”. Here’s your opportunity to help them look even more stylish and sexy while doing it. This is our roundup of the perfect looks for them.

Reservations Required

If you have to poke, prod and almost pledge your first-born to get someone on your list to break out of their mold, whether it’s a love of all black or a uniform of denim and tees, this list is  for you! These are the folks who are more reserved and stick to a pattern and palette for dressing. This is not only a female phenomena as there are some men who only rely on simple blacks, browns or greys to get them through spring, summer, fall or winter. Think your classic New Yorker who can wear all black like nobody else, or the woman who chooses a Prada loafer instead of Manolo stiletto and you get an idea of who we had in mind for these picks.

The Bold & Brazen

Fearless and whimsical, and clearly not ruled by functionality or uniformity, these are the most fun and indulgent to shop for. We could all take a fashion and life cue from this brazen bunch. They live and dress with a passion that is truly palpable; even if it’s not always understandable. Taking fashion risks and dressing for the sheer love of the sport is what drives them. With great satisfaction and youthful glee we present these picks to you….Enjoy.

Fluffy Lynx Fur Jacket from Marc Kaufman Furs in NYC

As your designated fur elves, we did our due diligence to come up with even more ideas to knock the socks off the loved ones on your Holiday shopping list. Whether the list is long, or considerately pared, small things go a long way. Take heed, small doesn’t necessarily mean insignificant. Don’t believe us? Do diamonds come in large or small boxes? Can hundred dollar bills fit in a pocket?… Enough said. If neither diamonds, nor money float your boat as Holiday gifts, then consider these small but mighty fur gift options for the ones you really, really love.

The Fledgling Fur Lover

Tweens, college bound and beyond this is for anyone who is looking to own their first fur item. In order to ease them into this inevitable lifelong love affair, we suggest smaller, cute, simple and highly versatile fur pieces that could easily transition from day to night, dorm to disco. Consider these if you aim to please.

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.

Emilio Pucci | Fall/Winter 2013-2014

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.

White Fur

White Rex Rabbit Cropped Sleeve Jacket with Fox Fur Collar, exclusively from Marc Kaufman Furs in NYC

One hot trend we are loving for Fall/Winter 2013/4 is the easy, clean sophistication of white. As it turns out, white furs are currently being revisited, not only by designers but also by a new crop of fans. There is something so elegant about white fur, the way it nearly glows in the light, exuding a stately formality and youthful elegance at the same time. Since fur is a natural product, simple color descriptions such as “black” or “white” are not sufficient.  So, white is never just white: there is ice white, milk white, eggshell, creme, beige, etc.

The Spring/Summer fur dilemma the past decade or two has been about how to incorporate fur for the season in a relevant manner with designs that don’t appear too formal, too dressed-up or inappropriate for the season. As these past Spring/Summer 2014 collections attest, adding a few white fur touches presents an exciting layer of luxe perfectly suited to the season.

The good news, it seems, is that white furs offer a new fashion versatility, great throughout the year and for all types of occasions. Just like a nice white shirt, the look is as classic as it is modern. From bridal occasions to nightclub hopping to everyday lifestyle, a white fur look will always reads fresh and chic.

Mink Coat Madness

While some trends come and go (we’re looking at you, mesh), fur has stuck around. Over the years, icons from Marilyn Monroe to Madonna have embraced fur, and the luxe look is once more one of the Fall/Winter’s biggest trends.

While Joan Crawford’s performance in the 1945 film Mildred Pierce scored her an Academy Award, there’s no question that the actress’s fur coat also stole the show.

Natalie Wood wasn’t nominated for an Oscar in 1966, but the actress dressed like a winner, wearing a sumptuous mink coat to the Academy Awards.

 

A super luxe full-length Ranch Mink Swing Fur Coat from Marc Kaufman Furs in New York City.

Of all the types of fur we love, mink is probably the most 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.

 

A Timeless 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.

Brown Mink Long Jacket from Marc Kaufman Furs in New York City.

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.

The Ultimate Luxury Gift

Elizabeth Taylor epitomized Old Hollywood glamour and was often photographed swathed in fur. Rumor has it that she once walked into Bergdorf Goodman to order 200 pairs of mink earmuffs as holiday gifts.

Fur Fashions from the Runways of Milan

Milan has long been the Mecca of the luxury fur market.

When it comes to fur fashion trends this Season, Milan is a total trendsetter. The Italians,  have approached fur just like any other material for decades now, constantly experimenting and innovating. Fall/Winter 2013/14 proved to be no exception. The result? Several exciting new fur trends to inspire us, as well as a return to some of the long established favorites.

Fur Fashion Trends 2013 | Cropped Looks

One of the big questions, not so long ago, was how to keep fur design fresh and youthful? Cropped Looks is one of the answers. Yes, this season had a great medley of cropped looks that are sure to win fans. Their spin on classic jackets, including blousons or bikers, shortened peacoats or kimonos, are allowing for greater versatility and wearability. These fur pieces complement a more mobile lifestyle, and work equally well with various wardrobe styles and age groups. Cropped fur looks are a MUST HAVE.

Fur Fashion Trends 2013 | Saturated Brights

Bright colors are also keeping fur designs fresh and lively. This season has given us beautiful Saturated Brights that are redefining sartorial conventions. Once fur is rinsed or dyed it transforms into a “surrogate textile” with tremendous creative flexibility. A quick dye bath can make any fur look sporty, chic, cool… completely new. Matching a fur to a textile’s color changes the fashion picture and creates a great new design platform (this isn’t anything new, but some of the high saturations used are). Combining these bold, rich colorations with the deep, textural appeal of fur lends a dramatic sculptural effect and maximizes visual impact.

Looking back at the past to uncover the NEW is a trend in and of itself. Retro Looks are given fresh new takes and are transformed into completely contemporary results – ones with a distant pedigree! The modernity of this trend comes with the initial appropriation of a look, shape, silhouette, made to read completely new once reworked with a specific fur type, fur combinations, or new and innovative manufacturing techniques. The past is the best teacher; these pieces are studied and foolproof… and full of personality.

Fur Fashion Trends 2013 | Decorative Mix

A little flair goes a long way. Many designers are embracing the Decorative Mix. A little something furry around the neck area, a few appliqué embroideries here and there, a little strip of long-haired fur on a trim or hem, all make a huge design difference. When it comes to decorative elements, the applications are so well researched and beautifully executed that even the most minimalist-minded will surely succumb to their creative charms.

Fur Fashion Trends 2013 | Winter White

White, in all its clean, crisp splendor, is fast becoming a go-to choice for fur designs. White, the de facto anti-color, is featured in a multitude of looks and shade variations that are making it a trans-generational superstar for its chic choice and versatility. Unlike black that often reads formal, Winter White can easily channel a sportiness that plays with the new casual styling favored today. All in all, white furs are becoming classic accents each season.

Seduced by Fur Scarves

Seduced by Fur Scarves

Scarves are the ultimate Fall/Winter accessory because they can “class” up any outfit without even trying. Want a quick way to turn jeans and a t-shirt into an acceptable evening look? Throw on a scarf. Turn a plain black evening dress into an unforgettable red carpet worthy look by adding a chic fur scarf. The Fall 2013 season has taken this classic accessory and given consumers something to look forward to.

Long and Luscious

Just like a flowing mane of hair, the elongated scarf is sexy, flirty and adds a dash of mystique. Regardless of the fabric or print a longer scarf can do double duty as a shawl/wrap thrown on for cooler evenings on the town. A hidden secret of many stylists is that a longer scarf is a fail safe choice for those who find themselves fighting the battle of the bulge because it helps to elongate the torso and  provides an instant overall lift to your look.

Short &  Sweet

When you think of shorter scarves your mind automatically tends to think bulky and constrictive. Not so as scarves have become far more light weight and versatile, especially when it comes to fur scarves. The advancements in knitting have made fur scarves lighter, more breathable and far easier to wear year round.

Wrap Yourself Up In The Season’s Most Luxurious Gift

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.

A.F. Vandevorst – Fall-Winter 2012-2013

Is it simply something that can be draped around the neck, resting elegantly onto the shoulders in the process? Not exclusively, if you follow what has been presented these past two fall-winter seasons. Scarves are doing a creative 360 and seducing a new swath of the populace.

Check out the cowl or ring scarves. These are everywhere this season and look AMAZING! This surprisingly “highbrow” chic look translates effortlessly into a greater variety of spin-offs.
