Okay, okay, fine. So maybe Kim K. didn’t actually model this fur coat made from human chest hair. But we bet if Kanye was like, “KK, it’s been on all the runways of Milan,” she’d wear that shit in a heartbeat. In reality, the reason this coat was made is much dumber than that. It was created by Brit dairy company Arla, as a means of advertising their new “male-targeted” chocolate milk, called Wing-co.
“We commissioned the Man-Fur Coat as a wake-up call for the nation’s gents,” said a company spokesperson. “[The coat is] a way to encourage them to readopt the values of assured ‘men’s men’ from yesteryear who would laugh nonchalantly in the face of adversity and be proud of their abundant manliness.” It is also abundantly expensive: Each coat is made from approximately a million hairs, and can be purchased for around $5,000.
Oh. Okay. Because nothing says restored masculinity like couture clothing and chocolate drinks.
Never been much of a Lana Del Rey fan. To me, her voice and her whole “thing” is like the human equivalent of Klonopin or something. And I’m not quite sure how she got crazy style icon status, but you know, you get your own Mulberry bag and suddenly everybody cares what kind of lipstick you wear. In any case, Ms. Del Rey was spotted coming back from a late night deli run in London Tuesday night, and she was wearing this coat. Which makes her look exactly like the cowardly lion.

Sometimes you want warmth and comfort without actually investing in a full-on coat-coat. Or maybe you live in an area that doesn’t get as cold as the rest of the country (lucky you!). If so, a sweater coat might be the right way to go. Sweater coats are a nice alternative to a traditional pea coat or puffy topper, and are versatile enough to be worn inside and out.

If Fashion Week’s runways are any indication, you’ll be seeing a lot of fur on the streets this fall. Fur was everywhere — from Marc Jacobs, to Carven to Christopher Kane and more — and you’re bound to see lots more as the temperature goes down. Personally? I’m not huge fur fans (I mean, I’m vegan, after all). It’s horribly expensive and it involves killing animals. So if you like the look of fur, but don’t like the moral and wallet price, try faux fur. We’ve found nine pieces featuring faux fur that we think you’ll love as much as we do.
