Fur Is Dead, Long Live Fur

Courtesy of Coquette Faux Furriers, a five-year-old operation hailing from Victoria, Canada “with the desire of creating affordable cruelty-free glamour accessories.” Accessories like this White Mink stole (“features little faux legs in addition to the tail”).

Please comment below if this mink stole–or perhaps the polar bear skin rug (“head can be used as a pillow!”)–appeal to you. This is very important journalistic research.

    i think it’s cute, in a plush way. but fur stoles have never held any appeal for me, so, y’know.

    I think it’s cute, especially with the obviously fake little face. Don’t know that I’d pay 89 bucks for it, though.

    Repulsive.

    But still better than the real thing.

    Really repulsive, even if it is vegan, you would still look just as ugly wearing it as you would be wearing fur.

    It’s only appealing if the wearer is also sporting a big, in-your-face anti-fur button.

    In general, I’m not against faux fur because I can’t imagine any good reason to be. Still, I find the products on CFF ridiculous. I guess my personal taste just leans towards something that looks more organic in origin–either looking like actual fur or leather or just totally not trying to.

    Comment #6 is totally on point. These stoles exist in too much of a clownesque gray area. And while they may be there on purpose, the joke is wasted on me. If it was Halloween and the stole was only $12, then maybe I’d buy it, but $89! Give me a break! I don’t think there’s anything funny about paying that much money for something that looks like it was constructed on day #1 of Sewing 101.

    I love them. I’d buy one of the bear rugs if I had a place for it.

    I think it’s stupid. I mean, I love retro things and clothing from that time era, but why wear faux fur? It’s the same reason why I don’t wear shoes that look like fake leather. I don’t condone it in the first place, so why would I want to emulate it? And to give it little legs? Is that supposed to be charming? I think it’s gross. By wearing faux stuff you are still saying “I think this looks glamourous” regardless to whether it’s real or not.

    I wear a hat sometimes that is a big kitten head- cartoonish, not furry faux or real, its cute and keeps my head warm. The cat on my head is all smiles and open eyes- not dead.

    If the mink didn’t look dead- flattened, it might be cute. Its repulsive the way it is though. It looks abusive to me- supports the entitlement notion omnis carry.

    I also make really fuzzy furry scarves that I suppose do the same thing and are still cute but don’t ENCOURAGE cruelty. Sometimes I put “legs” on them but its more Dr Seussian, its just a furry thing with an appendage.
