Classic Fur Silhouettes with a Contemporary Twist

Striped Red Fox Fur Stroller from Marc Kaufman Furs in NYC

Fur’s global popularity can’t be overlooked, much less dismissed. The international fashion world is showcasing fur’s luxe characteristics in extraordinary creative adaptations… and on more occasions than not these looks are direct celebrations of classic looks that were popular decades ago.

 

Révillon Editorial, Fémina, 1937

We’re not talking about replication, but rather reissuing classic cuts and proportions with a contemporary feel. Modern technology is making today’s furs a fraction of their past weight; they are also more supple and look sportier as a result. Dressing-down but keeping chic is now a new style in and of itself, ditching sweats for a fur piece is the name of the game.

Old School Classics

What designers do so adroitly is re-edit perfected designs. Old school savoir-faire is always a “must” study, things done 50 or 75 years ago are surprisingly modern and can still read avant-garde at times. That’s the one thing that makes fashion so exciting season after season. What will we rediscover?

Vintage Flair for Today

The current collections do have a great grouping of seemingly vintage references. What makes many of these looks work anew are their philosophical approach that embraces a fresh willingness to learn from past innovations.
