Fur unfurled at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week


I am currently in New York City for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. This mega style extravaganza at Lincoln Center features the lines of 69 iconic as well as emerging designers. Snow and freezing temperatures here cast a perfect backdrop for the unveiling of fashions for fall and winter 2014. Judging from the abundance of fur on the runway in the form of oversized jackets, scarves, capes, and vests, it is clear that Mother Nature acted as the creative muse for designers from the likes of BCBG to Herve Leger. Menswear inspired coats adorned with fur and leather embellishments, also made a strong showing this week. If climate change continues to deal us brutally cold winters, you can be sure that clothes that keep us warm and dry will dominate future fashion weeks throughout the world.

Wherever I looked this week, I saw fur, both faux and real. I also wrapped myself up in fur for my long walks around the city. Here are a few pics of fur wearing folks.
