Accessory Round Up
They say the best things can come in small packages and this season’s fur accessories prove that to be true. From head to toe - fox hoods at Chado Ralph Rucci and Michael Kors to Adrienne Landau’s leopard print goat stretch boot sleeves - and all points in between, fur accessories told the tale of the season. The beret was the top hat at both Oscar de la Renta who showed beaver, mink and lapin versions, and at Pamella Roland, who featured a ranch mink beret. There were fur handbags galore, including a super chic NAFA red fox evening look at Oscar de la Renta and a leather and fox clutch at Michael Kors. Luxe sport bags were the rage at Malandrino, who featured a braided fringe Kidassia sac bag and at Mizrahi where a red fox backpack set the sporty tone. There were enough gloves to keep the city chicly warm, including Chris Benz’ fun colored fox mittens and Brian Reyes chevron fox mittens. For a modern, flirty alternative to keep those hands cozy Mendel showed a richly colored fox muff. Dennis Basso showed brilliant creativity with a gunmetal fox and alligator sleeve providing the perfect balance to a black lace gown. At Wayne, designer Wayne Lee showed a cross-the-body raccoon tie stole. Colored fur was the topic at Peter Som and Anna Sui, with a purple sequin Mongolian lamb one shoulder stole at the former and a jade green fox stole at the latter. Carolina Herrera’s embroidered blue fox scarf beautifully offset a deep red wool and chevron pleated lamb jacket. For evening Oscar’s white rabbit stole tied over an emerald green gown was the perfect finishing touch for the season.
