Fierce & Faux

Posted In:

The list of designers who have pledged to go fur-free over the past few seasons is rapidly growing. Not only have brands recognized the impact they are having on the world on their own, but consumers have been making their own statement by shopping smarter and better. Designers like Stella McCartney have long shunned fur; now others such as Michael Kors, Coach, Gucci, Burberry and Versace have followed suit. While you can always grab a pleather skirt that feels decidedly more like plastic than it does leather, high-end fashion houses have joined the fight with everything from fur and shearling to leather and suede made of totally synthetic materials. The pieces might look real, but they are, in fact, some of the most impressive imitations you’ll ever run your hands over. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite fur-free runway looks and three hot-ticket picks to bring home now.

Plush & Timeless

If you’re really seeking a statement-making coat, look no further than Versace’s array of fur-free outerwear, perfect for a winter-weather getaway. If you’re not jetting off anywhere right now, you can still rock the fur in a more sensible style.

Can’t Believe It’s Not Leather

A lifelong vegetarian, Stella McCartney was among the first to create luxury alternatives to fur and leather when she launched her own fashion house in 2001. These boots and a cross-body bag from the designer are proof that faux can be just as luxe.
