Toronto Fashion Week: At Mackage’s show, rabbit fur flies and the leather look is in full effect

Fur for fall. It’s a thing. Sorry PETA, but until fur-and-leather-happy design houses like Mackage stop sending immaculately structured, edgy collections down their runways, it seems like you may be losing the anti-fur game these days. This season, designers Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy took full advantage of the animal kingdom with a fur-and-leather heavy, street style-inspired line. The biker grunge collection went beyond the usual fur-trimmings.

For fall/winter 2013, Mackage features garments such as circle skirts, sweaters and even crop tops in full rabbit fur. These pieces were paired with leather jackets and black leather leggings — some looks were put over black leather shorts, over black leather leggings. Layering leather on leather on leather? Add fur? Why not? It seemed as though rabbits and cows weren’t enough — the duo even played with croc-skin texture by sending out several leather circle skirts in bright red, black, and merlot colours.

The Mackage staple parka also made an appearance on the runway. The fur-trimmed hooded ski jackets were shown in navy, red, and two shades of army green. No biker collection is complete without the jacket. While the majority of the coat designs were obviously biker-inspired, like the array of leather-sleeved wool coats, the Mackage collection made sure to incorporate several straight forward leather bikers with a spin. They used dyed leather in amazing blue-jade and merlot colours. To finish of the show,  a dramatic full length, classic camal coat was sent down the catwalk. Don’t worry, it too was worn over a full leather look.
