Cold Blast Brings Furs to the Streets of Manhattan
By Patrick Michael Hughes, DNAinfo
The people of Manhattan are always fashion-forward. DNAinfo.com captures the latest style and accessory trends, from sunglasses to shoes and handbags to hairdos, as they’re worn out on the streets.
MANHATTAN — Plummeting temperatures brought furs out of storage in early December, and Street Chic noticed a range of color and style in the holiday shopping center of Madison and Fifth avenues.
And for those who do not want to invest in a full coat, fur accessories are an important trend this season. These were evident during the cold blast of approaching winter, and ranged from raccoon coiled scarves with tailored black coats, a white mink neck muff and a knitted silver fox newsboy hat.
“Everyone wants an accessory,” notes Brandon Sun, the design director for Oscar De La Renta’s fur division. “It’s a good investment and an easy way to re-style a camel coat or update an old fur coat,” he added.
When it comes to furs, Sun says rich and luxurious wild-type furs in deep tones have been popular for the designer range during the past few years, adding that “American red fox and coyote and the best minks are all made in America.”
Sheared gray corduroy mink is a popular fur choice for a younger woman, according to Sun, as it doesn’t look so much like a traditional fur and has a sportier appearance.
On the Manhattan avenues, Street Chic noted elegant and well-crafted silhouettes in Mongolian lamb’s wool with embroidery, sable ponchos with chunky knits, rare ocelot with mink collar and cuffs, and lynx gilets paired with sporty striped knits.
Furs are considered worthwhile winter investments for many in Manhattan, while others completely disagree. Street Chic did note some loud and passionate anti-fur and pro-animal rights protesters in front of Bloomingdales on Lexington Avenue.
