Fur – Hottest Trend for Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012

Fur has been popular for a few seasons in succession but it still makes a Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 trend because designers love this material for the luxury it turns every item into. However, total fur look is no longer that trendy, stick to fur details instead!

In hard times of economic downturn majority of designers tried to bring costs to a minimum by creating less expensive and simpler clothing. But there were those who did their best to resist the situation and kept on producing luxurious pieces affordable for high class only. They used plenty of fur and that way established it as a trend, pretty ridiculous at that moment. So, fur has been with us even in that period, no wonder nowadays (during Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012) when people have more money and are more financially stable it stays as popular.

For the fashion season of Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 designers have used loads of fur in their collections. But the trend itself has transformed a bit shifting from total fur look to fur details. Fur is no longer the focus of collections, it’s more of an accepted and ingrained part of those.

For Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 fur trend is best expressed in fur coats, but it also serves well to interpret the season’s other dominant trends. For example, in Gucci Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 collection fur was necessary to show the chic of the 70s.

Fur (all kinds of fur –long, short, faux, real) has been used to trim collars and cuffs as well as sleeves and hems of jackets or skirts. Sleeves could go either full fur or stretch along the entire length of it.

While in previous seasons fur came almost exclusively in more or less natural colors in Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 it arrived dyed in bold, often unexpected hues. Purple, green, blue, red – all these tones of fur are to be trendy this season.

Fur hasn’t only been used on clothing. It also decorated accessories like hats, boots, gloves and even bags.

Groups like PETA have done what they could to stop designers using fur in their collections and we can’t say they haven’t reached their goal, at least to some extent. Now around a third of designers prefer making wearable pieces from fake fur. However, when there is demand there is always supply. So, genuine fur is still widely-used because many customers love it, love the way it feels and looks. It’s just a matter of personal opinions and beliefs that an individual choose what to wear.

  • Fur is not the ‘Next Big Thing’, fur is the skin of an animal that suffered uncontrollable and unnecessary pain to become the newest instalment of your wardrobe. Fur farms across the globe cage and starve various animals before beating them to death for the sake of ‘Fashion’. Next time you look at a fur coat I hope all you can visualize is the bloody carcass of the animal that was left behind.

  • Oh please … so now we all have to wear synthetic/rubber shoes, clothing etc…….
    I’m totally against abuse of any kind and anything.
    By now, we have learned how to harvest, respect and enjoy “God given things”. Fur is green!

  • Kate, you are delusional and ignorant. How is fur “green” in any way??
    Apparently you are one of those people who still don’t know that animals reared for fur are not used for meat, and vice versa.

  • I can’t believe that there are still “Fur” custume in the market. What are you people who like to wear those stuff. I am out of it an it’s been many years now. Animal have life and they love their life the same as us.

    Check this out and tell me you re still want to wear it kate!

  • YAY fur is my favorite trend! And Kate is right, Fur is Green: natural and long-lasting, there is nothing that keeps you warm like a natural fur.
    I choose to not wear plastic but I won’t throw a fit to those who do. @MW Maybe not all fur animals are used for meat (some of them are eaten, like beaver), but fur animals are fed the millions of pounds that we humans don’t want to eat. Recycling at its best!! Fur is Green! ;0P

  • Of course I try not to wear real fur, but I don’t get when people scream about how cruel it is. I bet you’re eating your burgers and bacon everyday and don’t give a damn about poor animals…

  • i definetly agree with you, Ulya.
    First stop eating meat then you can scream at using real leather or fur. Meat turns into shit later on, but fur continues to exist in a proud way at least.

  • I must say the fur industry is horrendous, alot of the fur on our catwalks and highstreet is from china………watch this if you really want to change your mind about fur………..

    PETA campaign

    I have never worn it since looking in to the facts about it!

  • Faux fur only please – this is abusing nature :(
