The key to effortless style this season? All fuzz, no fuss
Texture may be the single most transformative tool in our sartorial arsenal: adding interest to monochrome looks and a touch of tactility to tailoring. Throughout the autumn/winter fashion week circuit, it's been a mainstay on the runways, with tactile finishes most notably permeating the collections of Bottega Veneta, Gucci and Valentino.
But off the runways and onto the streets, looking luxe in perennial faux fur, feathers and fringes is an undeniable trend. Take the (arguably) most sought-after blazer in Copenhagen, come courtesy of By Malene Birger and paired with knitted shorts and mid-calf boots by our local style set. Or, note the crisp white mohair roll necks worn in Milan, perfectly juxtaposed by a sheer black midi skirt and platform horse-bit Mary Janes. Both instances cement the delectable materiality that can be found in the refined use of fuzz.
Then there were the impeccable outfit toppers, be it an XL faux fur bucket hat or a fuzzy pillbox hat, and the fantastical colourful ensembles focusing on the impactful addition of feathers – as proposed by the ineffable Anna Dello Russo in Paris. And nothing can beat the '70s nostalgia of a glam-rock coat, complete with a fur-trimmed collar and animal print, naturally.
