Much of what we've seen on the Fall 2009 catwalks might be be trim and deliberately sculptural but outerwear seems to be taking on a more relaxed, retro feel. In Milan forties style coats were noticeable for their cinched waists and round shoulders. Would these look right with something sculptural underneath? We think some experimenting is in store.
Despite Tim Gunn's best efforts it seems the Fall 2009 season is fully stocked with statement fur. We saw plenty of unabashed examples in New York and although London's offerings were less plentiful, Milan has compensated with some of the most statement-making options yet. Whether by way of bright color of sheer volume, these furs are certainly hard to miss.
