Fall’s fur fascination runs deep. From the 1940s mood on runways to Celine’s cheeky fur pumps and Birkenstock-style sandals dubbed “furkinstocks,” the material has certainly cemented its place in fashion after several seasons of growing interest. But this interpretation isn’t limited to the typical chubbies and flowing coats of yesteryear. Laser technology enables designers to cut pelts into precise, often fitted silhouettes and ornate patterns for chic, ladylike looks. They also experiment with a variety of textures and brilliant to offbeat colors that normally aren’t associated with fur. Accessories like handbags and mixed media necklaces also get a furry makeover.
