Bill Blass closes shop. Calvin Klein and Zac Posen cancel their after-parties. And Marc Jacobs has to downsizes his invite list. And though we maybe getting "poorer" by the minute, nothing on the runway reflects such cash-strapped circumstances.
In fact, designers have been giving show-goers just the opposite - some serious glamour. Glitter and gold, lux leather, and lots, I mean LOTS of fur have been spotted on numerous runways from New York to Milan.
Marios Schwab brought bright blue fur to the runway. Ralph Lauren gave us classic, chic white fur. And Todd Lynn raises the price on the tough girl look with bold black fur. Even Carine Roitfeld is getting into the fur frenzy spirit. If fur floats your boat, you'll be able to find it just about everywhere next fall.
I've received quite a few comments asking me how I could support fur on my blog. Simply stated - I don't support fur. I have never and will never buy anything fur. That being said, just because I disapprove doesn't change the fact that fur has been all over the fall runways. And the purpose of this post is to draw attention to that fact.
