Vest In Show

img_5226as.jpgNo longer the province of rich old women, fur has been trending younger and cooler for several winters now. The result this winter is more fur – and more variations on fur – than I’ve ever seen among the previously fur-deficient urban hipsterati. I’ve seen quite a few short mink jackets while out and about, but the hottest item among the politically-active-yet-politically-incorrect set this winter just might be the fur vest. Often a vintage find that is rendered in rabbit or coyote, my favorite so far this season was a fox fur vest that I spotted outside the Chanel show in Paris – you can check that here. I also adore the shaggy, sheared, and cruelty-free wool and alpaca fleece pieces that I’ve been seeing. The key with these I think is to get the most obnoxiously huge and fluffy one you can find. These are real rock star pieces that do not benefit from the exercise of moderation.
