The autumn/winter 17 runways showed a plethora of coats and accent pieces made of the fauxest of furs. This season, Miu Miu
amazed with faux fur madness in head-to-toe fake fur silhouettes that could easily see you through winter. Miuccia Prada designed a striking palatial blue ensemble, complete with buckled headgear and a voluptuous coat that was cinched at the waist by a crystal-embellished belt. White patent brogues tippy-toed the look, providing an amiable clash of textures. At Dries Van Noten
, a fuchsia pink coat was slung casually over the arms, leaving the neckline bare to showcase all of its embellished goodness. Paired with cropped velvet trousers and Courrèges-inspired white boots, it truly was the flashback we were waiting for. Patchwork was key to Sacai
’s AW17 edit, including a parka-inspired style that featured different panels of faux fur, layered over a checked midi skirt. A contrasting orange collar brought a welcome vibrancy to the gloomy colour palette. Faith Connexion
went all out, with a bright yellow hooded coat paired with black leather accessories and a monotone scarf, adding a toughed-up look to the sunny shade and the figure’s softness.
