(Pre-) Fall 2014: All that Fur. It seems like there is a fashion show held every single day of the year! The fashionable human species has killed the seasons as they were once intended. We, at Mimi Berlin are happy to go along with that, we will report on Fall, Pre-Fall, Spring, Summer, Couture, Winter and what have you not all at the same time. Or better even, we will report when we feel like it. Last week, from January 7, 2014 through January 18, 2014 the women’s wear collections for Pre-Fall 2014 were presented. Pre-Fall? Yes that’s a season as well. It’s the same as Mid-Season. We, at the Mimi Berlin offices always loved that term: “You can wear your Mid-Season coat today Beja, it’s getting chilly outside” It does sound better than “Pre-Fall coat”. Anyways, these collections are small in-between-capsule-collections and they are filled with fur, fur and more fur, of the glamorous kind.
The menswear Fall 2014 fashion shows were held from January 6, 2014 through January 19, 2014. Again the designers made lot’s of use of fur, fake or real, we don’t know, and in the end that doesn’t matter because it’s a trend, it will be picked up by high- and low-end brands. Fur for men in Fall 2014 was mostly used for Knee lenght coats, scarves and sweaters.
