Aviator Inspired Look Fur Jackets Reimagined

Dark Green Plucked Beaver Jacket Buckled Sleeves and Belt from Marc Kaufman Furs

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.

To properly outfit these fearless women traditional functional uniforms had to be retrofitted to mold to a new silhouette.  Over the years it has been these silhouettes that have been peppered with contemporary fashionable nods and creative twists to deliver modern, chic looks for the sophisticated fashion shopper.

Aviator Jacket Facts: as early as the 1920s a short leather jacket with narrow sleeves appeared to protect the pilot from harsh temperatures

The aviator look is trending again, playing off the strength of the feminine adaptation of masculine looks that has been so popular on the runways these past few season. 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.

Aviatrix chic hits the runway

These cropped jackets and strollers, tapered at the waist with narrow sleeves and oversized collars, most often in shearling or fur, are especially flattering for women. They convey a strong, sexy confidence and bridge the gap from downtown to uptown looks.

Full Length Platinum Fox Fur Coat from Marc Kaufman Furs in NYC

After a harsh winter, solvents, salt, dust, dirt and other destructive agents must be gently removed from your furs and leather goods. Our processes will help preserve your furs, extending their life span and assuring you years of enjoyment.

Fur and fur-trimmed apparel should be cleaned annually, by a professional furrier like Marc Kaufman. Never attempt to clean a fur garment at home or to bring your precious pieces to your local dry cleaners’. Solvents used in standard dry cleaning processes may leave the fur flat or may cause the fur to fall out. Unlike cloth, which is cleaned by immersion, fur is cleaned by abrasion.

After being carefully cleaned, your fur garment is then glazed to bring out the sheen and make it soft and fluffy. Flat curly furs such as broadtail are pressed with a special type of waxed paper to give them added sheen. Fur-trimmed garments and fur accessories should be treated like fur coats and cleaned only by a professional furrier. Fur cleaning and glazing is an essential practice for protecting the natural luster and supple texture of your fur garments. All furs need to be professionally cleaned and glazed each year, not only to preserve the garment’s exterior, but also the leather underside and interior lining.

In addition to having your furs professionally cleaned, conditioned and glazed, proper climate controlled, cold storage is also important to protecting your fur.

We provide expert fur coat cleaning, fur coat conditioning services, leather coat cleaning, leather coat conditioning, shearling coat cleaning and coat conditioning. We also expertly clean and condition wool coats, fur trimmed coats and most specialty outerwear.

Professional cleaning and care will extend the life of your fur garment. If your fur coat gets wet from rain or snow, simply shake it out and hang it to dry in an open space away from heat. After the fur has dried, give it another shake and the hairs will fall back into place. If you spill anything other than water on your fur coat, Do not rub the excess moisture away. Take it to down to Marc Kaufman Furs for immediate attention!

Trend Report from Fall/Winter 2013/14 Paris Fashion Week

Fur was everywhere at Paris Fashion Week for Fall/Winter. The French translation, la fourrure, features a purring intervocalic R; it’s almost a meow. We also noticed that fur didn’t just mean coats; we saw it as pocket detailing, handbags, collars and evening gown trim.

Long Hooded Mink Jacket, exclusively from Marc Kaufman Furs in NYC

When it comes to the fashion calendar, Paris Fashion Week is a golden ticket, the one that helps define and complete the emerging trends that we saw unveiled over the past month on both sides of the Atlantic. New York officially began the journey; Paris closed it –both to great fanfare and excitement. One could say, J’♥ la fourrure.

There was lots and lots of fur in New York, then we saw as much in London. But by the time we arrived in Milan, we weren’t sure if we were actually looking at fashion collections or fur collections (for us, a happy conundrum!)  By the time we arrived in Paris, well, the hand’s down trend for Fall/Winter was loud and clear… FUR is the global fashion trend to follow. The French like to refer to leathers and furs as “skins” (peaux) –some types are woolly or furry, others are patented, glossed, or even distressed. From broadtail to shearling to leather-fur combinations, the choices were endless….and quite tantalizing!

By the look of it, it seems only undergarments didn’t get the fur treatment this fashion cycle! Of course outerwear reigned supreme,  with layers of fur treatments of all sorts, but creative and beautiful fur adaptations were prevalent in daywear and eveningwear too. We’ll find out soon enough, come September-October, whether the next Spring-Summer cycle chooses to expend on the idea.

The other global trend that we literally saw bloom in front of our eyes was color. There were so many bursts of colors that next Fall-Winter will feel more like Spring-Summer. Hey, optimism is  addictive!  A few designers opted for a somber palette, but still managed to insert a few colorful notches. Stefano Pilati, at Yves Saint Laurent, was one of the only ones who chose to deny color, perhaps his final misjudgment for a house that was born on vivid color combinations.

But Paris being Paris, there were some great treatments and material experimentations combined with various historical and ethnographic references. Many designers feel more free to experiment with their craft in the haute couture fashion lab “mode” that is Paris. After all, savoir-faire is what separates the greats from the wannabes. This fashion cycle was truly inspirational.
