Fur & Feathers

I’ve found myself taking a conscious step away from all this shearling madness out there but I never say never, I might end up in there anyway. I’m rather looking for the perfect couture faux fur (or a real one), or a feather bomber, something like this jacket above from Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2010 collection, pretty much fur perfection to me and I’ve used it as inspiration when I had a look around what else’s out there. 

I didn’t find anything similar but I came across these goodies in range of different prices, I know they don’t remind much of the original but I actually think the cheapest one from Bik Bok has potential. 

  1. Bik Bok Fox Fakefur, £50
  2. Issa Rabbit hooded jacket, £660
  3. Burberry Prorsum, cropped shearling biker jacket, £1,895

    I HAVE to step in and say “NO TO REAL FUR!!!!”, I am sorry, as an animal lover and a vet, I can’t stand it…

    Hi Sara,
    I fully respect your opinion in this matter, and there are probably lots of other people who read this who feel the same way as you. Don’t get me wrong, I love animals too and I’m very aware of the ethical issue with fur’s but I find it hard to draw the line. Most of footwear and bags these days are made of leather. What I think people should keep in mind is maybe where it’s manufactured and do they follow the ethical guidelines. Interesting topic though and I’m happy to hear more opinions on this.

    I do agree, much of what we wear is from animals, either its clothes, shoes or many other things. Anyways i find it importaint to reflect and discuss the problem. But what i think is importaint to think about is how the fur industry treat the anymals in the cages. Do they get a worthy life and so on….
