Fancy a Shag: Fall’s Fur Trends


Perhaps Carine Roitfeld sparked a revolution with her Mongolian-lamb fur coat. All shaggy and rock-and-roll, it caused a bit of a sensation. Gone are the days of a little trim mink and perfectly pretty fox stole. This season, designers sent out messy furs, oodles of lamb, and shearling like you wouldn't believe. PETA, we suggest you avert your eyes. (But we daresay, with fur like this, faux will work just as well as the real deal.) From Giles Deacon's Cousin Itt–like skirt to Mongolian-lamb fur at Ralph Lauren, fall is going to be a bit hairy.
