Trendspotting | Bringing Out the Beast

The New York Times Fashion & Style | Ruth La Ferla | Feb 16, 2009

Designers injected an element of savagery into their fall 2009 collections, splicing pelts, faux and real, into even the tamest looks. Models stalked the runways wearing wearing monkey furs, a la Dietrich in "Blonde Venus"; outcroppings of fox, goat, Mongolian lamb, and in one particularly imaginative flight, scratchy yarns plaited to look like dreadlocks. The effect was unruly and downright primitive suggesting something feral lay just beneath the skin. Ruth La Ferla
