Hard Vs. Soft - Fur's New Fate

Thursday, April 02, 2015

What would fashion be without a little irony? Looking back at the recent runway presentations, you will notice that designers have scaled back a bit this year. Not in terms of design, but by cutting uneeded looks and unnecessary costs. Though that may be, the one thing that seems to never disappear is fur. With numerous fur coats taking to the runway this season, it seems that one of fashion's most costly items appears to never die down.

Seeing how true that may be, designers like Emilio Pucci, Isabel Marant, and Roberto Cavalli have all noticed the need for fur to appeal to a more youthful audience. Or atleast young at heart. Though I don’t support a blue dyed or really care too much for fur in that matter, as result many Fall 2015 furry extras alike have gone casual. No longer paired with the elegant and essential evening gown, the apparent needed luxury piece takes to the streets. Paired with cropped pants as shown on Vlada or at times paired with jeans at Emilio Pucci, fur has undergone a slightly drastic change.

When I read this post I was mostly consumed by thoughts of dying my hair red! xxx I think it's strange that designers are still flaunting fur all over the place.

i loved the cropped pants. they are like a substitute for leggings. they look best thin or cuffed.

Thanks for the comment. When I first went to America I really liked Abercrombie & Fitch because we didn't really have anything like it over here. But now it's opened up a store in London everyone's just buying the clothes with the logo on them. It's too casual and boring.

Interesting that you spotted this subliminal trend. It's clear that fur will never die, as it's truly the essence of the fall season. What I think fall, I think fur. Derek Lam, Iceberg, Alessandro Dell'Acqua, and Kors to name a few others all made this point.

From what I've seen, many designers are tending to cater and focus their attention a bit more towards a younger demographic. Therefore, were going to see fur done a younger way; making it casual, as you mentioned. I must disagree with you on on the blue dye. If some chic fashionista can truly make a jaw-dropping blue dyed coat wor[K], kudos to them. If I could, I would ;) Vlada looks youthful, polished, yet sexy head-to-toe. Hopefully we see more of this furry metamorphosis for seasons to come.

It's all about the investment pieces now, it's crazy that they're aiming for younger audiences, especially as not only are the younger poorer but fur is more expensive than most of the pieces in the show.
