Faux-fur: the new real luxury

Faux-fur is suddenly back in the spotlight. It is even synonymous of new coolness. Proof: Gucci, Miu Miu, Maison Margiela, Armani have made it their new hot item. Left by the wayside for a long time by leading houses, synthetic fur is suddenly back in the spotlight and has become a fashion icon and the new must-have luxury piece. The vegan crowd and those who are “cruelty free” now can also wear fluffy, warm and green-compatible coats.

Ultimate shunning of the “real” thing, faux-sheepskin-fur prefers very colourful pop versions in nuances of Pantone pink, blue, yellow. Ultimate snobbism: dare to go for the leopard print. And if vegan fur has all the assets to “be chic” with a nice pair of high heels or a pretty dress for a cocktail of a winter wedding, 2.0 fur also showcases street allure with a pair of Stan Smith, a high-waist pair of jeans or a cool sweatshirt. Demonstration with our selection of very affordable price tags as well as expensive models at real fur prices.
