Fashion Week A/W 13-14: Teddy Bear Fur Coat
Fur has so far proved a huge trend for Autumn/Winter 2013-14, particularly in Milan, with an offshoot micro trend proving to be the teddy bear cocoon coat.
Seen simultaneously on the streets and catwalks of Milan and Paris, the oversized long coat has a fleecy finish in a golden brown reminiscent of the classic teddy bear. Some of the world’s most influential editors including Carine Roitfeld, founder and editor of the self-titled CR fashion book, have been snapped wearing the piece, letting it take centre stage by teaming it with classic denim and simple court shoes.
Meanwhile, MaxMara sent its own version down the runway in Milan, combining it with caramel-hued separates for a tonal look. Satin-lined sleeves rolled up added a touch of shine and contrast to the fuzzy texture of the faux fur.
