We love the styling and accompanying article from this Women’s Wear Daily story highlighting the best faux fur offerings of the season from forward-thinking designers. Whatever the motivation be (animal welfare, sustainability, health/ allergy related, or purely aesthetic) more and more designers are ditching real fur for faux.

With today’s technical advances in textile manufacturing, there’s no denying faux fur is as luxurious and aesthetically appealing as the real thing. Just ask Dries Van Noten, Stella McCartney, Hussein Chalayan, Julien David, Kate Spade and Julie de Libran for Sonia by Sonia Rykiel- all of whom are offering faux fur this fall.
