Has PETA become extinct or has fur simply managed it’s way back into the fashion scene? Whether it’s faux fur or true fur, it’s all the rage…
While I made my way through London’s ‘vintage capital,’ Portobello Market, on a bustling Saturday morning in January, my morning latte in hand (from the mind-blowing Hummingbird Bakery in Notting Hill!), I was expecting to browse through men’s classic vintage plaid shirts, beanie hats, print leggings, lovely knit jumpers with elbow patches, and patent lace-ups. While those were all there to be found, they were overshadowed by the obvious style obsession of the season – fur.
I found classic, full fur coats and glam fur gilets on nearly every vendor’s corner. What’s even more, a stroll through East London’s Spitalfield Market just this past week, led me to find the same. Whether it’s the drop in temperature or a style crush, London is sending a hint…fur is back and there’s no disguising this storm!
As Winter’s lavish trend, I admit a fur vest is next on my ‘To Purchase’ list!…Stepheny
