Vintage Cat Ear

GETTING FOXY THIS WINTER by Jam

The Ushanka, or its American counterpart of the Trapper hat, gives a flat fur front with fold down fur-lined ear flaps, usually combined with a wool or leather cap material. A style born from practicality; this simple classic has really come into its own in the last few seasons, with famous wearers including the pop star elite of Lilly Allen, Rihanna and Pharrell Williams.

The Cossack hat gives an additional volume from the fur types used and presents more of a ring or cylindrical shape of full fur to sit atop the head. A favourite among British Royals, with the Queen having been spotted sporting many variations, new Royal and future Queen Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge has braved the elements in hers, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, famously commissioned milliner Philip Treacy to convert her mother’s vintage fur coat into the popular design last year.

The Autumn/Winter 2011/12 season certainly pays homage to these traditional toppers as Mark Fast got foxy in a fur fashion frenzy with his oversized Cossack hats that perfectly complimented the cocoon coat, fox trimmed dress and even fox frilled shoes on display. Oscar de la Renta showed a diverse assortment of different takes on the Cossack theme with a series of fox fur examples. Brimming with classic style mixed with a modern expression, Oscar de la Renta shines in blacks, silvers, plum and natural red fox. Herms portrayed a want to get back to nature as their bird-themed Autumn/Winter ready-to-wear collection soared into the minds of the fashion conscious and nestled itself firmly on to the winter wardrobe wish list. With a selection of hats, the timeless elegance of Herms shone through with their use of fur fashion on headwear, mainly utilising the inherent volume and full fur of fox on their Cossack and hybrid Trapper hat.

Looking at different styles to shake up the season, Moschino Cheap & Chic have gone organic in colour with fox, accentuating those natural creams and reds on their oversized hats. These beefeater style head warmers really utilise the pure volume, enhanced by the ribbon band detailing. While parent brand Moschino get creative with vertical feathered bird designs with dyed black fox trims. Givenchy get cunningly catty with pointy-eared glossy mink, invoking a feline fun suitable for the â€cat’walk. These high-sheen caps look minxy in jet black, especially when teamed with Givenchy’s cat-eye sunglasses. However, the major buzz is peaking at Burberry’s flat cap, which is indeed, not so flat. This peaked design can thank its voluminous mink fur for a fuller silhouette and comes in jet black, ice white or those combined shades to form a vibrant animal print design. The latter capped off a fun and flirty fur fashion season for Burberry and quite rightly seeks to be this season’s striking must-have.
