One of the nicest perks about the changing of the seasons, after the gorgeous drop in temperature and the crispy fall feeling in the air, is the chance to break out all of the jackets, sweaters, scarves, and warm layers. While it isn't quite cold enough to break out the fur yet, during NYFW I got a sneak peek of all the fun furs lined up for the coming season. At the Adrienne Landau press preview, the designer showed looks from her colorful fall collection of multi-hued fun furs alongside her extensive archive, which is overflowing with fur trimmed velvet kimonos, feathers, and sequins. At Helen Yarmak, the looks skewed more uptown classic, but there were also some electric hued standouts, including a green and black striped long coat, and a bright red bracelet sleeved jacket. For an added plush bonus, many of the models were accessorized with fluffy fur teddybears.
Even though wearing on full-on fur isn't an option yet, I took the mid-60's, slightly cool weekend as an opportunity to break out my new Adrienne Landau feather vest, which adds just a smidgen of extra warmth on days that are still sunny, bright and beautiful. I wore it to a send-off party at the Soho Yard for our beloved Nicollette, who is making a two-month move to London. London, you better treat her well!
