Faking It


Winter and texture go hand-in-hand where the illusion of volume from something that’s furry and fuzzy simply makes for a feeling of warmth. I would also like to think that most of us just need something fun to lift our spirits when it’s depressingly dark and cold out!

Faux fur has come a long way. It’s looking and feeling more like the real thing, but without the dreaded politics. What I love the most about this season’s shaggy textures is the colours! I recently found this fabulous new label, Shrimps by Hannah Weiland; injecting pure psychedelic chic through her capsule collection of faux fur coats and clutches, I adore her take on the pile.


Topshop have created their own sunny version this season. You simply can’t feel down in this canary yellow number.


Same goes for ASOS.

For the record, I’m Switzerland on the whole fur debate. I briefly worked in luxury and we sold brands that used real fur. Never have I seen such hatred and damnation from people who truly abhor the use of real fur. On this note, Meadham Kirchhoff x Topshop’s latest uber-collection features this utterly divine Mongolian sheepskin coat. Surely there’s a way to reach a sweet resolution?
