LOVE the Rick Owens, it looks unimaginably soft and beautiful, I wonder what type of fur it is, maybe something that's been sheared.
I remember fall 2005, the biggest fur trend back then was astrakan, which is very similar to fabric, thats why it all looked very fur-free.

Rick pieces look like mink and probable some "plucked mink", which is a technique in wich all the guard hair (the shiny thorn like hair that protects the underwool) is removed, leaving a very soft velvety surface that feels like short haired chinchilla.

It's made a big comeback I think because of all the stars who embrace it now. It's figured into many wardrobes again...
