kill the yeti

Wintertime is practically upon us according to fashion’s seasonal clock, and fresh perspectives on cold weather-ware seem within reach. As expected, the biggest names have produced enticing frocks that will inevitably dictate the next few months’ hottest must haves. But, lets hope Chanel’s fall runway has little or no say in it.

I must announce that I was rather HORRIFIED when I laid eyes on what was sent stomping down a watery, arctic runway during Chanel’s runway show. Model after model went by clad in a fur ball mess of ski suits, hairy accessories and disturbing fuzzy boots – something that I thought had already played out its miserable course. I remember a few years back when people thought it was ok to don a leg-consuming animal on their feet, and I had a few sighs of relief when they slowly trickled out of popularity. Now why did Karl Lagerfeld decide to bring them back front and center? It is beyond me why anyone would be tempted to purchase said boot and traipse along gathering as much dirt and mud between its hairs in public. Nothing about it spells chic or sophistication – not even quirky or adorable. Rather, it might suggest that if you stand too close to this boot, you will smell like a wet polar bear, and I’m sure that is less than pleasant.

Sadly, I found these monstrosities so difficult to look beyond, that I missed the beauty and genius that usually presents itself in Chanel runway shows. Now all I can do is wait in fear that I will see shoes like these (again) springing up all over department stores, online shops and on the street in the next few months. NO! NO! NO!


{mmmmmm wet smelly fur - what a delight!}


{I don't think I want to look like this anytime soon Mr. Lagerfeld}

  7. It's just a delightful homage to bigfoot, the caring gentle creature of the forest.
    I for one would like to wear an entire suit, mask and all, this coming winter.

    Chic on the Cheap

  9. i've seen some boots with heavy faux fur trim that i thought looked cute, but these pieces are definitely overdone and not so wearable.

  16. I agree with you! that was the worst ever collection. Some of the pieces would probably be alright worn with other less furry stuff..but the full fur suit? i don't know what he was thinking!
