Crimes of Fashion

Return of the Fur Vest

Is it just us, or does anyone else think this looks like some strange kind of Ewok fetish wear?

Fendi fur vest

Just us? Oh, come ON: you can totally see this in some kind of adult remake of Return of the Jedi, can’t you? If only it was THAT innocent, though, people: because, the fact is, this ISN’T a costume from a movie (not even a really bad one): it’s a Fendi vest. And it’s £11,000, too. (Well, £11, 450, if you want to be accurate, but we’re guessing that if you were OK with paying £11,000 for a VEST, you’re probably not going to be quibbling over the rest of the price tag, are you? Didn’t think so.)

Once again, we find ourselves amazed: not only that there are apparently enough people in the world who are willing and able to buy something like this for someone at  Louisa Via Roma to think, “Yeah, we totally need to stock that…” but also that fur is suddenly fashionable again. And yeah, we know, we know: it’s been happening for a while now, but even just a few years ago, a vest made from fox, mink and goat fur would have ruffled a few feathers at the very least. Now, though, it seems to be accepted that real fur is back in fashion – and we guess that while designers can convince people to pay £11,000 to look like they’re about to star in some Ewok porn, that’s probably never going to change, is it?

P.S. If you want to rest your eyes after what you’ve just seen, don’t forget to check out our sponsors at Shopbop. Last week’s sale is now over, but there’s still plenty of good stuff in the ‘New In’ section to keep you occupied: and none of it costs £11,000, either. Or, at least, we hope not…)
