Fur, both real and faux, returned for the Fall catwalk, and one of the most interesting incarnations of the furry stuff was the debut of the gorilla arm. By that, we mean the seriously, thickly fur-covered sleeves of coats. Rag & Bone showed it in their futuristic Scottish ski bum, Giles did it under a black corset, and Peter Som took it to the trench. It's certainly a bold look, but one that could be hard to pull off. What do you think of this trend? Would you wear it?
Velvet pieces were one of the biggest trends to come out of New York Fashion Week, including everything from jewel-toned loafers at Jenni Kayne to red tuxedo coats at Tory Burch. Other highlights included classic black blazers from Olivier Theyskens's capsule collection for Theory, Marc Jacobs's lust-worthy capes, and a sighting of hip Brit Alexa Chung making waves in a blue velvet coat. To get the complete lowdown on this plush material — plus styling tips sourced from the runways — watch our trend report now!
