A fur is not always just a fur at Adrienne Landau, where some of the designer’s coats featured integrated backpacks. “I really looked at what people are wearing on the streets,” she said.

 

Landau also explored her creativity by mining utilitarian possibilities, such as furry parka hybrids. “I said to myself, ‘Why is the fur inside on most parkas?'” she explained. “The fur should be outside.” The result was a range of furs featuring drawstring details, hoods and multiple pockets — used successfully on some looks — but coming off as a bit too tricky on others.
