Last years post on seasonal transitions was based on footwear, this season were seeing how fur has been incorporated into the ready-to-wear spring/summer looks. Fur made its reappearance in AW10 with designers like Dior, Cerruti and Lanvin all sending their models swathed in layers of rich mink’s and fox fur and Chanel took an alternative route creating ‘fantasy fur’ a new take on faux fur. Cerruti’s coats were vamped up with thin panels of fur in burgundy wine red.
It seems odd to wear such a heavy fabric in summer, but Dennis Basso has shown wintery fur in such a romantic and feminine way. Light shades of pastel pink and lilac on sheer bodices teamed with shiny satin skater skirts with simple make up, make this look really chic and easy to pull off for a cute day-time look.
