Gucci A/W 2011
One thing that's struck me so far from each Fashion week around the world, is the collective interest in fur. But this is not fur like we have seen before, oh no. Get ready for bright dye fur. From design houses such as Gucci, Prada and Fendi it has been featured prominently. The unnaturally coloured fur is the next big trend for winter. I'm already trying to figure out how I'm going to dye my white fur coat from winter '09. Tie-dye teal is always a possibility..

Matthew Williamson A/W '11 and Alexander Wang A/W '11
(It even comes in manly cammo print for the guys) Fendi A/W '11
Coming in bright red and turquoise to black and white striped, it's fur gone bold. Which I guess is quite exiting really. To be honest I'm pretty sick of the 'art school-meets-east london-granny look' which if you're wondering consists of: hair put in a high bun, 'controversial' over-sized glasses, brogues and your gran's vintage fur coat.. oh and some sort of garment from American Apparel. I'd love to see the vintage fur replaced with this modern twist. Who knows maybe even the granny glasses will get replaced with some sort of neon monocle. One can only hope.
