History:
In 1917, Paul Poiret and other couture designers introduced fur stoles into their collections. These elegant fur wraps, which were worn over the shoulders, remained stylish throughout the 20th century, especially with Old Hollywood film starlets such as Mae West and Jean Harlow. In 1938, Lanvin designed a thinner fur cape shawl, which could be wrapped around the shoulders. For many women postwar, a fur coat, preferably mink, represented the height of luxury, and the ultimate object of desire. In popular culture the ambition to own a fur coat became a defining quality of femininity. Our favorite glamour girls Mae, Marilyn, Mamie & Mansfield were always adorned in a luxurious mink, in any color and length you could imagine. Petal pink is our house favorite, inspired by the dyed pink fox fur coat worn by Shirley MacLaine in the 1964 film "What a Way to Go." A ready-to-wear animal friendly fur, in all the necessary colors, is now attainable for any occasion and wardrobe, all year round!
