London Fashion Week Street Style: Furs and Skins
Now, let me say I am not someone who wears fur. I do wear very carefully chosen leather shoes and accessories and I limit my consumption of animal food products. In other words, I am a very conscious consumer of products that impact on animal's lives and our environment. And I would never, ever promote the use of animal fur for fashion.
I am simply reporting the trends as I see them. And real fur is back. Sorry.
There is also the small issue that vintage fur is a grey area that has allowed fur back into vogue, back onto the front row, back into permissible use. I won't be wearing it myself, but I do understand the reuse of vintage pieces. Nothing was killed in your lifetime for the garment to exist and the vintage, granny-chic look is massive this winter. So do what you feel is appropriate, but never take our planet or its inhabitants for granted please! That's all I ask. Good.
