Gray is the new black, furs continue to fascinate and details like animal print linings will enliven even the most classic beige coat. Fall outerwear remains luxurious — $1,000 wholesale coats aren't unusual. For those with shallower pockets, fake furs rendered in current and cutting-edge styles offer good value. But whether fur or fabric, silhouettes are streamlined, closures are nearly invisible, everything is belted, and coat racks everywhere will be awash in a sea of gray.
"Gray is hot and coming on really strong for next season," said Donna Salyers, president of Covington, Ky.-based Donna Salyers' Fabulous-Furs. "And we're doing it in all shades."
