To say there is something precious and elegant about white fur is an understatement. A touch of white mink, or fox, reads as much Old Hollywood glamour as it does Patrician elegance, and is a worthy look for events from grand soirées to sporty fun to winter nuptials.

In past decades, white furs were often favored for evening looks due to their soigné sophistication. Today, though, designers are adapting white fur as a new design palette, adopting both shorthair and longhair types equally and delivering looks that are iconoclastic, both referential to Old School models and reflecting  more Street Style variations.

White furs reflect light like no other furs and have the ability to read both formal and youthful at the same time. White conveys an aesthetic that is crisp and clean, modern and feminine. In the time when black and white photography was the norm for the media, a star in white fur was a graphic showcase. Nowadays, though this iconic photographic style may be out, the enduring appeal of white fur continues.

When it comes to Street Style, mink and fox are not alone anymore, Mongolian lamb (and every other lamb/goat types), rabbit, and bleached furs of every type are utilized with equal largess. The name of the game is design and personality. From classic items to more fashion-forward ones, a little white fur is always chic and fun.
