Adriana Lima a Modest Supermodel

It seems that most top models from all over the world correspond to the particular stereotype and life style when their biography is examined. Supermodels are mainly too ambitious women with some delusions of grandeur, though. They aspire to exploit all their beauty and grace gifted by nature, youth when they are fifteen to twenty and the diligence to earn as much money as possible to become the idol for the weaker sex and the object of desire from the stronger sex.

Fur Fashion 2010

Wednesday, 27 January 2010

fur fashion 2010Whatever the latest fashion trends or economic situation in the world, luxury fur never goes out of fashion. Despite the depressing atmosphere of the global crisis, which caused many brands to give up luxuries in favor of enforced functionality, winter collections are still dominated by fur pieces, both natural and faux, which can really match natural fur in quality or appearance.

Fashionable fur pieces are no longer limited to the classic sweeping long or mid-calf fur coats. This winter, it's not about the length; it's about style and cut. Shorter pieces are in vogue today. In 2009-2010 winter season, designers offer shorter, structured, elegant versions of classical fur coats with new proportions to match latest fashion trends.

The general trend for cutting the length of fur pieces gave rise to the emergence of entirely new element of the winter wardrobe - a fur vest. Stylish, comfortable and extraordinarily warm, fur vests made their appearance in the shows of world's most renown fashion designers, including Philippe Lima, Jil Sander, Stella McCartney, Michael Kors, as well as in collections of much more accessible brands such as Guess, Juicy Couture, and Bebe. Giorgio Armani included into his winter collection a faux fur jacket featuring leopard print. Most commonly smooth silken fox and rabbit fur are used along with faux fur. For instance, famous Hollywood style guru Rachel Zoe used in her collection for QVC several styles of faux fur vests.

Another hot fur piece, heavily featured in winter collections, is fur shrug or shrunk jacket: Antonio Marras, in his collection for Kenzo, decorated the shoulders of his luxury shrug pieces with silver beaver fur, combined with brightly colored accents. Givenchy has shown elegant short sable fur shrugs in their winter collection. Christian Lacroix included into their winter collection luxury stoles and wraps of silvery-white fox fur, while Derek Lam created a number of gorgeous mink stoles. Jean-Paul Gautier's collection showcased a true embodiment of glamour - gorgeous long dresses combined with same long, luxurious raccoon, sable and mink fur coats. In his collection, dazzling evening gowns were trimmed with luxurious fur, with exquisite fox fur collars and cuffs. Sable fur trimmings also were seen on some of Karl Lagerfeld's pieces for Chanel, while Elie Saab chose white faux fur to trim his foamy-white airy dresses.

This winter season, the most popular types of fur include fox, rabbit and mink, and the main trend in fur fashion can be best expressed by the golden rule of «the less - is better»: fur accessories - fur hats and bags - have utterly lost their appeal. Designers are rediscovering simple and never out-of-date classics - streamlined, clear cuts of fur coats and jackets. Fur is quickly becoming one of the most elegant winter trimmings: Miuccia Prada used it on the V-neck vests in her autumn-winter collection, while Karl Lagerfeld relied on fur for trimming both clothes and accessories. Gorgeous furs were the highlight of many autumn-winter collections - Pucci, Lanvin, Givenchy, Nina Ricci, and Stella McCartney. Donna Karan, Giles Deacon and Salvatore Ferragamo rejected fur collars and cuffs in favor of voluminous fur gloves.

Notwithstanding the general tendency to minimalism and simplicity, some designers preferred brightly dyed furs of fiery colors bordering on flashy, from neon yellow to fuchsia and cerulean blue, to natural tones like gray, black and white. Brightly dyed fur was used for trimming of casual street wear in collections of Thakoon, Behnaz Sarafpour, Peter Soma, Isaac Mizrahi, Rebecca Taylor, and Matt Williamson. Italian fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana showed an amazing faux fur stole colored in radical neon pink, while Sonia Rykiel rocked the audience with a fur coat in deep burgundy hues.
