Bags have easily become one of the most recognizable status symbols… and key accessories in today’s fashion-conscious circles. A waiting list for the $22,000+ “Birkin” bag is a clear testament to the importance fashion-minded women are placing on their choices of ‘arm candy’. So it is no surprise that with all the buzz surrounding fur, designers have embraced new possibilities afforded by innovations in fur technology to create a range of extraordinary fur or fur-trimmed bags in virtually every shape and size this season.
For that fuzzy feeling this fall/winter why not dive into the latest trend? I’m talking about that latest juggernaut trend for fur purses, clutches, satchels, totes and even backpacks!
Of course, nothing is ever new when it comes to fashion. Fur is the original –the oldest material ever used– to make anything and everything from garments to that iconic accessory.
The fashion wheel is spinning again; re-serving new designs in fur bags that will have any fashionista worth her [or his] salt with a statement-making look.
By the look of it, this trend is here to stay and seems to have seduced its fair share of beauties. Everybody, it seems, is embracing the cozy bags. Designers are having fun reinventing them, and well-clad ladies are listening. The fur bags gracing designer collections are uniquely chic and elegant.

Fur is, after all, the universal material; its “high and low” versatility factor makes it the go-to material par excellence –kings and hippies alike have incorporated fur as part of their signature look.
