Fur specialist Yves Salomon served a volley of new techniques for fall, working fabric mixes to interesting visual effect.
The brand showed raffia embroideries on soft lamb fur coats, in one instance, or knitted tweed with fur, which looked modern and street-smart on a sleeveless vest with a blazer front.
As the family-owned business is growing beyond “just fur,” it also put its printing techniques to the test this season, making wool look like fur, while shearling appeared more versatile when shaven to resemble mink on a reversible and surprisingly lightweight day-to-night coat.
Overall, the outerwear-centric collection sported a more youthful, laid-back flair, also thanks to a quirky capsule collection that could have fit in nicely in the new “Zoolander” sequel. It featured oversize rabbit fur teddies and the brand’s signature parkas, both boldly printed with elephant or zebra heads in the back.
