|Etro Fall RTW 2011|
Soon, ladies, come autumn, it's time to let that animal out of its cage. Yes, it's time for the fur gilet, once again. Real fur, faux fur, shearling, you name it! There were quite a few to be seen on the A/W 2011 runways, like these shearling ones at Etro and Isabel Marant. We all know this is nothing new, but this winter, Diane von Fürstenberg and Tory Burch take this look to new lengths, with long, lean, fuzzy and below the knee versions, that make for a glamorous change. I bet the high street will be following suit asap, with Topshop and Zara at the forefront.
What is your relationship with the fur gilet? Do you think it is a versatile piece for layering, that keeps you cosy, warm and stylish at the same time, or is it too folksy and Pagan for your taste?
