Fur for Spring? Why Amal Clooney, Bella Hadid, and Jennifer Lopez Are Onto Something

Post by Katiedot on Fri May 19 2017, 07:23

No.  Just no to fur.  No reason for it ever unless you need to world to know you're a cruel, vain person.  Shame on Amal for wearing it, shame on Vogue for promoting it.

It all started during a routine scan of my friend Olivia’s wardrobe the other week. All of a sudden, I spied a fur like none I’d seen before. It reminded me of my drapey Rick Owens leather jacket, except in mink and sable. This Dennis Basso jacket stood out for its light weight, slender silhouette, and high-impact color-blocked stripes; the fox vests and mink bombers hanging nearby suddenly seemed slightly duller by comparison. The jacket became an instant trigger point for wardrobe exploration—especially during a spring when East Coast temperatures kept fluctuating between warm and cool. I begged her to let me borrow it.
“Wearing fur in the spring is as easy as any other material,” advises [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], whose eponymous fur and accessories label is stocked by Moda Operandi and Neiman Marcus. “It makes any outfit just a bit more fun or glamorous.” The following day, as I offset shredded white jeans and a simple henley with my borrowed find, I couldn’t help but agree. At work meetings, it was immediately met with smiles and approving nods, while at a cocktail party that evening thrown by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], It girls were pawing my sleeves. No one was surprised by the jacket on me per se; what drew attention was the concept of wearing fur in May.

Yet according to fourth-generation furrier [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], furs don’t have to be strictly for keeping warm. In lighter weights and constructions, the material also provides a bit of “everyday opulence.” “Furs make an outfit stand out with a little glam and can be worn many ways,” she says. This holds true for [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], who have all adapted new ways to wear the onetime winter material, thanks to the Italian label [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. “Spring furs are designed for glamour,” said Maria Murray, the designer behind the brand. “[They’re] ready to be thrown over the shoulders with jeans or paired with a spring dress.”

Murray also points out that her brand’s sustainably produced pieces are a smart investment—heirlooms to be passed down between generations or friends. As for my friend’s fur, not only does it represent a softer, cozier alternative to my basic leather jacket, but it also makes for an ideal cover-up in my overly air-conditioned office. And with New York temperatures about to slide back into the ’60s this weekend, it feels as timely as ever. Good thing I still haven’t returned it.[/size][/size]

Where Amal is concerned, I wonder if they're talking about the dress she wore with the horizontal fur stripes. I don't remember where she wore it, but it was a stupid dress and a disgusting waste of animal life. I'm not a huge Amal fan and am now even less of one after her fashion-victim choice.

For some reason the photos didn't come out in the article. This is the one of Amal:

Looks like a flock of birds died for that dress, as well as a bunch of rabbits for her wrap. Stupid woman!

@Lizzy....she can't help it....She is a sucker for "big Brand" names, is MRS CLOONEY....they don't see style or workmanship...just price and impact (good or bad it doesn't matter).....

She never fails to disappoint me in her choices....they are never thoughtfully composed, never compassionate or emotionally engaged....They have a price tag and that is all that matters......

Mmm, never thought about it/this before...Choices with an over developed sense of brand loyalty...did she choose the man who happened to be a brand?....Or the 'brand that happened to be a man....

RULES

This is George Clooney's wife you're writing about. Like her or not, she's his choice so please, let's keep it light.

Sadly there's a lot of people (sheeple?) who think the same way: it's designer and it's expensive, therefore it's desirable.  I know she's doing her thing with the vintage clothes but fur and feathers is just unacceptable.
