Fur Obsession

It's official: this season, the designers have become obsessed with fur.

It's everywhere. I was going to post this later, but how did it become so cold already?!

Fur was present in several different guises, from the mainstream to the extreme.

And at Amanda Wakeley, the trend was also eerily realistic:

Hermes took the theme to new levels with this beautiful bird of prey perched on the model's arm (I believe it is a Gyrfalcon), the hunting cap and snakeskin print top:
