"Elegance is the balance between proportion, emotion and surprise" Valentino

Two are the major trends emerging from this first turn on the runways: fur and bright colors.

Let's the colors for another time, here I'm discussing Fur.

Last season Fur did a first shy apparency, mostly under the desirable shape of shearling aviator jackets, now it's everywhere: on the New York's runways as well as in the streets.

I suppose it's this icy weather that inspires designers.

However, they're showing some fantasy, not only putting fur where it belongs (to quote Anna Wintour, on models' back), but also where you didn't have expected it.

Some examples:

- An Altuzarra's look: fur coat and furry sandals

- Alexander Wang's furry shoes and sunglasses (well, he and Altuzarra aren't friends for nothing)

- Furry sleeves at Tory Burch's

- Classy at Diane Von Furstemberg's

- A "I've-just-come-back-from-Aspen" look at Derek Lam's
