There’s no bigger sartorial taboo than fur. It’s the cigarette smoking of fashion. But what do you do if you crave the look and feel of the warm and furry? Faux fur.
And I’ve found the most luxurious faux fur jacket of the season. The jacket comes in bone and is made from 100% organic cotton faux fur and 100% organic cotton twill lining, and features front pockets and faux tortoise shell buttons.
Made in NYC, it’s just one of the many gorgeous designs from Loyale, the brainchild of designer Jenny Hwa. Jenny noticed a hole in the market for beautiful sustainable clothes and decided to couple her passion for the environment, her degrees in business and fashion with her work experience at Catherine Malandrino, Chaiken and Jill Stuart to create her signature brand.
Fall 2007 features the Tularosa bohemian dress made from bamboo, the Niland jacket made from organic French terry, as well as a to-die-for Solano tunic made from 100% organic cotton twill. Not to mention the Costilla faux fur jacket.
Now I’ve just got to move to a colder city in order to wear it.
