White Elephant Furs

A section dedicated to furs you see in your dreams, on the runway, but hardly ever in real life. Or aren't we mixing with right crowd?

Still, this 'natural fawn fox coat' is typically one of these coats that make your wonder: alright, this is not a dream, they exist. But where are they, who is wearing one?

It will be a while before you'll see walking into a party wearing this. Laguna and Sammartin are a couple of Spanish designer who got some attention before on the Softspot. If this isn't the stuff my dreams of ... this is.
