New York Fashion Week Top Trends 2015

By March 8, 2015 fur, News and Events

No more #NYFW hashtags needed as this season has come and gone, leaving us plotting our wardrobes ahead in preparation for Fall 2015! Although the overall vibe at the shows this season was “stay warm,” it’s clear that it’s only a matter of time before past trends come back around. Here are a few of our favorites:

NYFW_1

NYFW_2

There was a strong ’70s aesthetic in nearly every collection being shown at Lincoln Center. From high-waisted pants, flowing peasant tops and floor length floral maxi dresses brought back memories of Studio 54, feathered hair and disco. You can embrace your inner hippie with these 70’s throwbacks with a modern twist.

Plaid, checks, and gingham…oh my! Plaid and checkered prints are back in a big way. Designers have taken the typical “picnic-wear” style look and re-imagined it in a chic, sexy way. Beautiful color combinations and modern fabrics keep the classic sweetness of the looks with a modern twist.

NYFW_4

Embrace your sass with bright, head-turning reds. Poppy shades of red and coral will be ripe for the picking next season. Many women reserve red for Valentine’s Day or the Holidays but designers have taken red to glamorous and luxurious show-stopping everyday pieces. Be bold!

NYFW_6

New Touches of Tangerine

Next fall will call for touches of bright tangerine, dark orange and all colors in between. Whether you want just a touch of orange or a full length ombre sequined evening gown, orange in all of its hues are a must have for the months coming up. Play with different hues to find the perfect orange color for your skin tone.

NYFW_7

Each season, designers have their own unique ways to incorporate leather into their collections. This season it is being used for everything such as an accent, like elbow length leather gloves from Marc Jacobs, to full leather ensembles complete with a leather vest, coat, and pants from Ralph Lauren. Adding a few touches of leather can give any outfit a chic but edgy upgrade to freshness.

NYFW_8

The only thing bigger than fur trim this season is strategically-placed fringe. Fringe appeared in dozens of collections — ranging from Stevie Nicks-chic to something a little more modern. Whether it’s a fringe trimmed bag or full fringed pencil skirt this trend seems to be here to stay.  From feathers to fabric fringe is a must have this season.

NYFW_10

Speaking of fur….

Fur was everywhere! It’s not your grandmother’s mink coat anymore. From brightly dyed fur coats and jackets to hand bags to robes; fur has taken over the collections.  Not just furs either, shearlings made a big impact as well. Fox was the top choice this season adding luxurious touches to several collections. Fox stoles in particular, are making a big come back. Fur was used for unexpected pieces, such as a mink shirt or a monochromatic fur pencil skirt.  We saw detachable fur linings from Jason Wu, patchwork pieces from Oscar de la Renta, robes, coats, and muffs from Michael Kors, and trapper hats and shearlings from Ralph Lauren. These furs break out of the mold of stuffy and crash through the door of modern, stylish, and stimulating.

Tired Of Your Old Fur? Trade it in!

By September 25, 2014 fur

Finding the right fur to fit your personality may seem extraordinarily difficult. You may have spent hours, days, or even weeks trying to find the perfect mink jacket to wear. Unfortunately, personalities (and wardrobes) tend to change. What do you do with your beautiful furs when you find that you’re no longer wearing them anymore?

For many, this is a chance to move on to something new, a fur that better embodies your new look. At the same time, your old furs may be collecting dust in the back of your closet, or, worse yet, in storage waiting to be worn again.

Even if you no longer love the look of your old fur, doesn’t mean that it has to sit in storage, put that money towards something you will wear, in a current, modern style.. There is a way to have your cake and eat it too, by getting a brand new fur for a great price, and clearing out some of the clutter in your closet.

Now you can empty out your closet and receive a generous discount for your beautiful new coat.

We will take in your fur and professionally assess it, giving you a fair price for trade-in your beautiful fur. Why not treat yourself to something new and will fit in well with the rest of your wardrobe? Send in your fur today and get a great deal on your next purchase!

Fur Gloves Are A Great Choice For Formal Wear, Or Are They?

If you have a pair of fur gloves in your closet already, or if you’ve just lusted after them for years, you’ve likely heard the common misconception that they can only be worn to formal occasions. Fur is often worn to formal occasions when the temperature drops, but that doesn’t mean that wearing fur to formal events is a rule that has to be followed at all times.

When you look at fur gloves, there are three options that you traditionally have, and one isn’t even a glove at all!

Fur Muffs – If you’re looking for formalwear, this is the best choice. A fur muff looks great, feels great, and is the perfect choice for a formal event, like an awards dinner. You will want to look your best, and these beautiful muffs will keep your hands warm while you do it!

Fur Mittens – Luxe and luscious describe fur mittens. While they are far more versatile than a fur muff, they are still a bold and beautiful choice. From football games to holiday parties, fur mittens may be the are a great stylish choice to keep your hands warm.You may not want to wear these to the most casual event, but if you are planning on heading out to a cocktail party or other semi-formal event, this can still be a great choice.

Fur Gloves – These often come with a base of leather and are trimmed with fur, for a beautiful combination that you won’t want to put down. Are you looking for seeming that you could wear to seemingly any event, from formal to casual? This is the choice for you.

Where do you lie when looking at fur gloves? Are you a big fan of the fur muff, or are you partial to mittens or gloves instead? All of them are beautiful choices, and we stock the best representations of these furs on our online store.
