Lots of fur during the first fashion weeks of the summer

The trend has been clear at the latest fashion weeks – fur is popular and is appearing more and more on male models.

The world’s biggest stars were gathered on relatively few square metres at the Louis Vuitton Spring 2019 Menswear Show in the Palais-Royal Garden in Paris on 21 June.

A handful of Kopenhagen Fur representatives were there alongside famous stars such as Kanye West, Kim Kardashion and Rihanna, watching the debut of Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton.

Among the guests was Julie Maria Iversen, VP Design & Production at Kopenhagen Fur, who was impressed by the show and the fur styles for men.

- Menswear and men’s fashion shows have created a new hype, and we are also seeing more and more creative fur design creations for men and increasing numbers of creative designers want to work with fur, so there are more fur for men than ever before, says Julie Maria Iversen.

Beside a remarkable white fur jacket, there were several mink fur accessories such as handbags and scarves at the Louis Vuitton show.

Marvellous mink

The Louis Vuitton Spring 2019 Menswear Show was not the only one with fur for men during the Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.

The New York Designer Thom Browne drew the audience into a magical design universe with a string of colourful mink fur styles – including a marvellous green mink fur man’s coat with a quirky white lobster silhouette.

Fur innovation

On 4 July during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, Fendi’s traditional ‘Haute Couture’ show, dedicated to the most fantastic fur creations, will be held.

Both Julie Maria Iversen and CEO Jesper Uggerhøj will be among the audience members admiring some of the finest fur designs imaginable.

- I’m always amazed by the Fendi ‘Haute Couture’ shows. It is overwhelming to see so much beautiful fur design in one place, says Julie Maria Iversen. She is very clear when it comes to the general fur trend on the catwalks:

- There is a great and wide fur appearance at the major fashion brands’ shows. Kopenhagen Fur increasingly collaborates with the most powerful fashion houses, because even the greatest brands seek new innovative ways to use fur in their designs and for that Kopenhagen Fur Studio is of course available, says Julie.
