Karl Lagerfeld Goes Big on Fur
One of Karl Lagerfeld’s latest creations – Karl Lagerfeld Goes Big on Fur – Defiant designer Karl Lagerfeld goes big on fur. Karl Lagerfeld, probably the most outspoken man in fashion, issued a statement of intent at his Fendi show in Milan: “Fendi is fur! Fur is Fendi!”.
Karl Lagerfeld Goes Big on Fur – The call to arms left the audience in no doubt about what to expect. Mink and fox in a palette of natural tones – with highlights of electric blue, pink and orange – appeared on outerwear and separates, the arms of sunglasses, shoes with sculpted heels and even bags.
Karl Lagerfeld Goes Big on Fur – Although fur remains contentious – with designers such as Ralph Lauren, Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney refusing to use it – it is a luxurious tradition for many of Italy’s most opulent labels. And Fendi, part of the LVMH stable, which saw profits rise 19 per cent to €28.1bn (£24bn) in 2012, has a vast client base among the super-rich of Russia and emerging markets for whom fur poses no ethical problem.
