A pink dream

How gorgeous is this jacket?!
I was sold at the mix of soft pink and sculpted studs on the suede. Bonus points for the straps on the fox sleeves. Got to find out who is the genius mind behind this beauty…

Fair Fur at Todd Lynn

Todd Lynn's Autumn Winter 2011 collection features furs from Saga Furs.

Todd Lynn featured some very beautiful furs in his Autumn Winter 2011 collection. The Canadian designer, who is based in London, has a very “open” relationship with the fur industry. He collaborates with Saga Furs for his collections, and is very clear about his reasons for using fur:

“I am very careful about where my products come from. I work with Saga fur – it comes from Finland, they have a vested interest in proper product and breeding, and the animals have to be treated properly. I’m not a heartless person, but for those of us who work in high-end fashion, there are certain things we need to use. Fur is something my clients want. You make the choice. We don’t do a lot of it – it’s just part of the collection, the way leather is.” -Todd Lynn

If only more designers would take this approach.

Prada Spring Summer 2011

Prada Spring Summer 2011 campaign, shot by Steven Meisel.

I loved Prada‘s spring summer 2011 show, the bright colours, beautiful prints, and striking silhouettes certainly made it one of the strongest of the season, so I was thrilled to see the new campaign images have been released.

My favourite pieces in the collection were definitely the multi-coloured fox skins that the models held as they strut down the catwalk. The striped foxes definitely caught my eye, I love that a designer brand is incorporating fur into its spring summer collection. And why not? A fox stole is a great alternative to a jacket when wearing a cocktail dress in the spring.
