FAUX The Love Of FUR

Faux fur coats have transcended time, re­main­ing one of the high street’s best sellers, even af­ter all these decades…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

Con­sider win­ter: what do you think of? Maybe it’s mulled wine by the fire, the first crunch of snow and – what else? – Christ­mas. The pes­simists among you might fo­cus on the dodgy weather and the grey cloud that is Jan­uary. But do you know what unites both per­spec­tives? A faux fur coat. Which, in­ci­den­tally, is our first thought about win­ter

Al­though the fab­ric was in­vented in 1929, it wasn’t un­til the 60s that it re­ally caught on, with the likes of Twiggy lead­ing the charge. Since then, ev­ery diva worth her salt has a furry best friend – and they know faux is the only way to go. VB rocked hers in the 90s, while Si­enna had the early noughties cov­ered. Now, cult de­sign­ers like Shrimps and Char­lotte Si­mone have in­jected some fun into their faux, with bold colours and even print. Haven’t joined the club yet? Never fear, there’s still time. Just ask your­self: what would Joan Collins do?
