Fur Pants for Fall?
Before you can say "Chewbacca" Winter 2010 will be upon us. The August issue of "In Style" magazine included a Chanel ad featuring fur pants. At first I wasn't sure if they were pants or chaps, but upon further inspection they are indeed pants. Whew -- what a relief! Fur chaps would be silly. Apparently, it is ALL about Inuit Chic for Fall. The fashionistas have outdone themselves on this one: They have FINALLY found a look that is universally unflattering on everyone, except maybe Tickle-Me-Elmo. Designer Karl Lagerfeld assures us that the pants are strictly faux fur, as Chanel would never do anything so tacky as using real fur. Thank goodness for this, because I would NEVER wear REAL fur pants! (I wonder if they are machine wash/tumble dry, too?) Lagerfeld goes on to explain that the use of REAL ice icebergs as a back drop for the models in this collection is a statement on global warming. I guess that is why he always has that fan. I thought maybe he was menopausal. This show was Spring 2010, which was before the big BP Oil Spill in the Gulf, so now I can't wait to see what he comes up with using that for inspiration!
Leggings are starting to look better and better.
