How to Wear: Faux Fur




Last term at uni we took a short course on the role of animals in society 
and in the enactment of human identity.
Inevitably, we also talked about the current and controversial issue 
of the relationship between fur and fashion.
If, on the one hand, fur -and in particualr big soft fur coats- 
have become symbols of sophisticated, decadent and sensual femininity, 
social prestige and luxurious taste, 
it is also true that nowaways fur wearers are increasingly seen 
as cruel animal torturers.
Where do we stand? Fake fur is the way to go!
Fur surely looks good, and a lot of A/W 2010 collections proved it. 
But that doesn't mean we have to kill animals!
As Karl Lagerfeld said: "fake is not chic [...] but fake fur is"!

Durante lo scorso term all'università abbiamo frequentato un breve corso 
sul ruolo degli animali nella società e nella caratterizzazione dell'identità umana.
Inevitabilmente, si è anche fatto il punto sul dibattito attuale 
e sulla controversa relazione tra pelliccia e moda.
Se, da un lato, la pelliccia - morbidi e ampi cappotti in pelliccia... - è diventata simbolo di una femminilità sofisticata, decadente e sensuale, di prestigio sociale e gusto per il lusso, 
è anche vero che oggigiorno chi indossa pellicce autentiche 
è sempre più spesso considerato come un crudele torturatore di animali.
Da che parte stiamo noi? La pelliccia ecologica è la soluzione!
Le pellicce sono sicuramente belle ed eleganti... 
...e molte delle collezioni A/I 2010 lo hanno dimostrato. 
Ma questo non significa che sia necessario uccidere gli animali!
Come ha detto Karl Lagerfeld: "fake is not chic [...] but fake fur is"!

I totally agree on this issue!. I love fashion. Fashion is fun and beautiful, but not for the sake of being cruel to any living being. Fake fur is just as good, so why am I still seeing real fur all over Italy? It makes me so disappointed sometimes to see people just not caring about this issue.

You two are very talented and you have a very cool blog!

What about fur that's a leftover from the meat industry or controlling the size of animal populations??
