Adding fur to your wardrobe is definitely the season’s biggest trend and can either be a subtly sumptuous enhancement or overtly opulent statement. Continued advancements in the technology used in fur fashion, mean new ways to showcase the inherent qualities in each different type of fur and a master class from designers in how to shake up an outfit with the simple additions to hemlines and cuffs or sleeves and collars, breathing new life into classic silhouettes.

Getting foxy this winter, Alexander Wang, Felipe Oliviera Baptista and Nina Ricci enhance its voluminous qualities on coat collars, Moschino Cheap & Chic present pieces in its natural red and browns or Christian Dior, Manish Arora and Fendi add feisty colours to coats, stoles, bags and hats. Alexander McQueen’s range of bewitching fox trims and borders are used to feathered effect on dresses, jackets, corseted coats and hoods in mysterious and seductive Black Swan vein of pale greys, whites & blacks. While also feathering up the festive season, Ann Demeulemeester looks to long-haired goat in her trademark glistening black on a range of glamorous coats.

Chinchilla’s organic fuller nature was traditionally utilised for an all over more rounded line on coats but is also now used to perfection to add segmented dimension to a range of clothing and accessories. Skilled lover of fur Dennis Basso proves yet again his expertise at drawing out that voluptuous volume, by dividing and combining with contrasting materials and other furs, such as his mix with cashmere, mink and sable for coats or with alligator for his must-have tote.

Invoking that touch of mink, Betty Jackson brings a knitted effect to tops, cuffs and hoods, as Nicole Farhi adds to sleek jackets and blouse in brooding hues. Rick Owens utilises beaver lining on his striking leather cape and Mulberry also line with beaver on their leather coat. Fully embracing the luxury range on offer, Oscar de la Renta goes with a combination of multi-wools and furs on his rabbit and Merino dress with feather embroidered cashgora and fox hood.

Lamb is showing its sheer diversity this season, with so many different textured fleeces to choose from. Mongolian lamb presents its crimped effect trimming evening gowns from Versace and coat sleeves from Sonia Rykiel or Karakul’s intrinsic warmth shines through when added to accessories by Rochas. Mouton lamb is added to coats from Jasper Conran and Kalgan shows its soft side on jackets and bodice from Gianfranco Ferre. Prada show preference for Toscana lamb on coats, dresses and collars shown in apricots and olive greens and Vivienne Westwood extracts its depth in coats, as too do Hermés who add to shearling and leather. Shearling continues its popularity in fur fashion throughout the winter months on a wide range of accessories such as boots, as seen on Blugirl, or lining and trimming top trends such as the aviator or parka jackets from a selection of top designers this season.
