In the name of fur
Fur. Hated by some and loved by others. It has been with us since the dawn of humanity. In the name of love we do everything and, in the name of love of fur, some brands have created alternatives for us to continue to love it - while others kept tradition, and continue to produce it in its natural form. In any case, what we cannot deny is the love we feel by comfort, the cozines, and the warm embrace that this material provides us, so much so that we want, and can, use it from head to toe.
Tangled in love
Our nerve are not in tatters, but we are crazy, head over heels, by fringes. This season, the love for fringes is so big that we forget everything we ever proclaimed about “less being more.” Camões already said that love is “wanting to be imprisoned by will”, and that is exactly how we feel, wrapped up, entangled, in a love difficult to let go. Fortunately, there is an immense universe of wonderful, interwoven, hanging wires, in everything from coats to sweaters to shoes (yes, you read that well) worth loving. Passionately, of course.
The fight for love
Joana D’Arc received divine visions to free France from the rule of the United Kingdom. We, mere mortals, conceive idyllic visions in the hope of freeing our spirit, and our soul, from the realm of loneliness. To that end, we dress to precept to fight broken hearts, unrequited loves, and overwhelming relationships. Lucky for us, this winter there is a whole wardrobe to match our condition as glorious and immortal warriors.
