|High Tech Fur collar by Emerson Fry|
We've always worn our vintage fur collared coats, so I didn't really pay attention to just how many designers did them for their fall lines. It wasn't until we sold three fur collars in under two weeks that I thought, "Hmmm....what's up with that?"
Turns out everybody did their own version of a fur collar this fall. And I mean EVERYBODY. Michael Kors, Marni, Derek Lam, Elizabeth and James, Louis Vuitton....and you know our fave, Alexander McQueen.

It doesn't have to be formal either. I love the casual-luxe feel of this:

You can even go for different colors!

And while I pine for all of these fur pieces, I know that the best bet is to buy vintage or handmade. They are more affordable, one of a kind, and no animals were recently harmed in the making of the collar.

Or you could be a good girl -- buy faux fur, like this pretty handmade collar -- and still be fashionable.
