Vintage Fur jacket GIVEAWAY!

100 days of fur was a personnal experiment and it has been a great opportunity to learn a lot about different fur types and styles. I received great support from the fur industry, which was wonderful because I had thousands of questions (thank you again Beautifully Canadian, Fur Council of Canada and Pappas Furs). I also want to give special thanks to Theo from Trend Furs who sent me a special package all the way from Germany: a box full of vintage furs, including a beautiful jacket that I wore at London Fashion Week. Also thanks to Steven Goodman, in Toronto, who also sent me some fabulous vintage to round out my wardrobe!

I want to share the generosity with my readers so I saved this coat for a GIVEAWAY!

After asking around, we came to the conclusion that this coat is made from mink pieces — the parts cut off when the original coat was trimmed to the pattern. The oval shapes create a beautiful effect. The pictures don’t do it justice, the fur is really lustrous, light brown with golden tones, in great condition for a vintage piece. The lining was worn, so my friends at Beautifully Canadian asked Montreal designer Minos at Jean Crisan Furs to change it. The jacket fits a size 8 or 10 US, but as you can see in the photo, it can be belted to fit smaller, and can probably work on a size 12 too!

Here is your chance to be the proud owner of a vintage fur coat! Easy steps to enter the giveaway:

Good luck!

  2. How timeless (yet timely)(and versatile; a stylist’s dream), how magnificent – and one of a kind! am particularly enamored of the unique hints of aurulence to its saturated hues + luster. really, the word brown doesn’t suffice to describe its color (only in the manner Nabokov would term ‘weak blond prose’); I suspect one would need to ransack the OED for the perfect sufficiently-sumptuous synonym. Anyhow – I’d never be able to find anything like it on my own. following you at # theneedfortweed and on Facebook i’m Delphine T, have liked you on there.

  3. Awesome project! 100 days of fur especially in Vancouver!! How brave are you? Awesome job!
