New York Fashion Week is complete, and the key trends for Fall/Winter 2016 have emerged from the runways. Perhaps you blame it on the return of the Star Wars franchise and the beloved companion of Han Solo, Chewbacca, but longer fibered, more natural-hued real and faux fur seem to be taking precedence on the runway for fall/winter 2016. Fur is, of course, not a surprising staple for winter collections, but this season’s lineup has rehashed it in order to make it feel fresh and edgy.
Sally Lapointe embellished her over sized knits with luxurious fur sleeves, while Zang Toi opted for more traditional vests and collar accents. Jonathan Simkhai showed ultra plush fur coats, and further proved this is a piece that is not going away any time soon. Moncler Grenoble perhaps took the most unique approach, even going as far to show the collection outside at Lincoln Center to truly expose its new garments to the elements Among the many ski-oriented clothing options from the brand were fur cuffs and lined boots, perfect for the sub-zero temperatures they were presented in. Click through the slide show above to see how these, and other brands and designers interpreted the fur trend this season.
