Fur is a top fall 2010 runway trend but we prefer faux fur

Faux fur expert Jaclyn Sharp and Imposter founder speaks out about the return of real fur in fashion. As we are recapping runway trends for next fall it’s hard to ignore the abundance of fur shown during New York Fashion Week. Without naming names and going runway to runway, there was a plethora of fur shown in almost every style from subtle to ostentatious, including the fluffy fox skirt shown by one household name fashion designer. I felt like I was watching reruns of 80′s prime time soap operas where the characters dabbled in glutinous excess on every level, including fur. But have we not progressed from those stereotypes of what appearing glamorous is all about? That was for the ‘Uptown’ set, while the edgier ‘Downtown’ designers showed less opulence and more esoteric wildlife skins. I believe they called these varmints on the “Beverly Hillbillies,” but they are still vanity fur all the same.Fur is no doubt a passionate issue for many on both sides. We all need to be respectful of each other in our personal choices and tastes and in what we decide to wear and perceive as luxurious and ethical to each of us as individuals.Personally, I’ve never been a fan of wearing vanity fur but do believe that it should be an educated choice. In my opinion, if you do decide to wear real fur it should be humanely sourced, meaning a by-product of the food sector and not merely perceived as something chic to throw over your shoulders. Of course there is also vintage fur and repurposed vintage fur but that too can lead to all sorts of right-minded discussions.

Runway Review: Menswear, best of the classics fall 2010, Milan & Paris

“With the end of the last decade’s heady maximalism behind us, and the dawn of a new era upon us with a loud call being heard for palette cleansing essentials in a time when the economy ain’t so pretty, many are looking for easy, fuss-free propositions that are not only right for the times, but right for the future even.The day of instantly recognizable runway pieces is long gone and many venerable labels are looking back at not only their own heritages, but also the fundamentals of a smart wardrobe.>> See Runway Review: Menswear, best of cool for fall 2010The urban warrior, the svelte mod, the 80′s electro playboy and the avant-garde techy futuro man we’ve seen many times around throughout the last decade have all taken a backseat (but that’s not to say things are about to get too classic). In his place comes a clever use of house signatures for Fall/Winter 2010 that epitomize easy sophistication from institutions that you can always turn to for guaranteed quality.>> See Fall 2010 Fashion Show Photo GalleriesFour stand-out collections with “investment” potential & forward thinking clarity in this latest menswear movement were Giorgio Armani, Dries Van Noten, Lanvin & Prada.”
