Catwalktrend FW2010: hairy situation
For a lot of designers we hope it’s going to be a cold winter. How else would they get rid of their many enormous fur coats?
The fur coat we’ll see this winter is thicker than ever before. The models at the Chanel show looked like snowmen and at Michael Kors they resembled big hairy animals.
For Fendi Karl Lagerfeld came up with patchwork fur, at Chanel he opted for faux fur and stated: ‘You fake chic, but you can be chic in fake fur’. Viktor & Rolf’s first look was Kristen McMenamy wearing an gigantic fur coat (under which many layers of clothing were hidden).
Lanvin, Thakoon, Hermes, Bottega Veneta and D&G put a small belt around their big fur coats to give it a little more shape.
We saw real and faux fur in just about any imaginable color. PETA activists won’t be so delighted, but the fur looks really were show-stoppers.
