Black Furs, A Sophisticated Classic Reinvented

There is something extremely sophisticated about black furs. From the way light flirts with their rich textures to their radiating luster, black furs are often considered – and chosen – for more formal looks and black tie occasions, but black has taken on a “bright” new role in fur design!

Black fur seems to be getting a ‘second fashion wind’ of late, with Haute couture on the forefront showcasing  a wild array of looks. From luxury outerwear to skirts and dresses to accessories and fur trims of every dimension, the new focus on black fur is delivering looks that are simply extraordinary.

Haute couture isn’t simply the quintessential fashion laboratory… the experimental fashion closet… it directs and influences fashion down to Street Style. Out of the myriad of looks shown these past Fall 2012-Winter 2013 Haute couture collections, black furs of every type adorned ladies [and some gents] with a fantastic Romantic twist.

This year is a not only redefining what black fur is and can do, it is changing the face of fashion altogether. A few designers are taking the more literal Romantic era spin, whereas others are looking at it more as a luxury fabric to showcase their creative muscle.

Dramatic aplomb and sleek chic are hard to attain, but when you throw in some black furs, it is it a fashion slam dunk!
