The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - UPFRONT - WORDS ANNA VLACH

Anna Vlach high­lights coats to keep you eth­i­cally warm this win­ter.

There’s nothing warm and fuzzy about an­i­mal cru­elty, so get real about fur and make sure you’re only wear­ing the fake kind. Made from syn­thetic fi­bres which are just as warm as the real thing, faux fur is in again this au­tumn/win­ter. Yes, you can go with a “nat­u­ral” looking faux fur, but that’s a bit beige. Australian lux­ury brand Un­real Fur, stocked by Col­lege Park bou­tique Elle & Elka, has vests and jack­ets in un­real colours like pink, peach and green.

Or why not go re­ally wild and run with a leop­ard faux fur. One of the lim­ited-edi­tion pieces in a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween South Australian artist Dana Kin­ter and Gor­man, the Animalia jacket is purr-fect for ev­ery­day. Karen Walker’s Gato dress in “crazy cat velour” is for when you’re on the prowl. Wear it with this sea­son’s must-have shoe – the kit­ten heel.

If you’re a less-is-more kind of girl, Re­view’s Mar­ian coat in pea­cock blue has a de­tach­able fur col­lar. Last but by no means least, Alan­nah Hill’s A Tri­fling Mat­ter cute cropped faux fur jacket comes in clas­sic black and the sweet­est shade of candy pink.
