Back in the days, fur coats and wraps used to be sole privilege of the rich and famous. I imagined women wearing couture suits, dresses and gowns with furs at the opera or dinner at the Ritz. However, there are furs and there are furs. Of course there are still women wearing 3/4 length mink coat with evening gowns but furs nowadays have become younger and trendier which is exactly what I have in mind.I like to mix and match casual and luxurious pieces. I will wear my furs with tees and jeans. I adore fur wraps more than fur jackets and coats because wraps are trendier and younger in my opinion. Of course, for a formal event in the winter, a fur wrap is perfect to keep me warm in my little cocktail dress. I have my eyes on the piece in the center top row. Yes, the faux chinchilla little cape has me drooling all over my keyboard. It will be so cute with a tee shirt and jeans or a LBD.See, isn't jeans just perfect with a faux fur jacket? The look is totally casual and stylish. This one retails for about $1568.
Okay, I am dreaming of winter with lots of snow and chilly days.... This one retails for about $472.
I don't know what I am going to wear with this white wrap, but I am sure the savvy gal in me can figure out. This one retails for about $504.
Back to the point of this post, I have purchased furs in the past. However, I have been rethinking this fur thing. So when I came across Copenhagen Artificial Fur, I was pretty excited. This company makes faux fur pieces which still provide us savvy gals luxurious styles without buying real furs. Besides, living in sunny Southern California, I really don't have the need to buy fur since I usually get to wear these pieces only 2 to 3 times a year if I am lucky.
I contacted the people at Copenhagen Artificial Fur for price points since I want to know for myself. I found out luxurious scarves cost from approximately $108 and the shoulder wraps from approximately $366. The most expensive item is a “mink” jacket with fluted sleeves and Swarovski crystal banding costing approximately $4263. CAF is positioned as a luxury brand and each piece is carefully made(lining is hand stitched and has piping in our signature orange colour. And, Swarovski crystals are all sewn on by hand.) in Copenhagen, Denmark. Now I am really curious if these fur pieces are as luxurious as they look on the picture.
So let me ask what is your favorite fur style (coat, jacket, scarf, or wrap) and will you consider real fur only, faux fur only, both, or none of the above?
