Agreeing, stiletto, but then again, it seems it's bit ALOT this season in particular. Some of these looks are really nice, but.. Fendi should really stop making furs. Like now. They're all the same and all fugly.

A Warm Reception
There were plenty of furs on the runways for fall, including neon chubbies and even Rastafarian fringe numbers. But there's also something to be said for a simple, effortless fur, and designers delivered that in spades, too, in everything from swingy jackets to sporty vests and charming cropped options.

even though i'm not keen on fur and i'd never wear it, love the Malo & Cavalli jackets, and some furs from krizia & Myself posted above
Since Jean Paul Gaultier started using fur in his couture collections back in 98, fur started enjoying a new stardom on influential catwalks arround the world, lately it has been a very trendy material, an although designers always work with different types of fur, one can recognice the trendiest one each season, back in 2005 it was all about astrakhan, 2006 was filled with chinchilla and now for 2007 the reigning star is fox.

I can't see myself ever wearing fur, however, I do like it. While I can see some of the points of the PETA side, it is nice as well to see designers stick to their "guns" so to speak and not cave in from the pressure.
