Gift Factory. No
coats, but everything else from furry dolls to fur bikinis. Bikinis
in Alaska? Fur bikinis anywhere? No place like home ... An
efficiently designed site. New November 30 (2) 2000. (Chuck from Alaska)
Alaskrafts. Small but
sympathetic page. No coats, just accessories. Like the Alaska Gift Factory,
they do fur bikinis, on customer specifications. I think the one with the
foxtail is a great idea. :-) Off with her head: we all know the sad
phenomenon of chopped-off heads in fur pictures, but I didn't know
mannequins (hello, Ethel!) could become camera-shy too. New entry August 24
1999, update November 30 (October 10) 2000
Lake Tahoe. Alpaca and sheepskin. It's easy to get lost in this jungle of
clashing type and colour; if everything is yelling for attention, nothing is
likely to get it. I nearly missed half of the collection, by my
inclinination to skip the often irrelevant banner-ridden tail end of web
pages. Site navigation is far from obvious.
That being said, Alpace Pete's wares look beautiful, and are in most cases
presented at a decent size; unlike most sheepskin sites, who all use the
same `professional' - i.e. small - stock pictures again and again. So have a
good look anyway. Update posted October 20 (July 28) 2000.
Antique furs. This is a quote
from the excellent Hotbot search engine: "List of dealers who maintain a stock of furs, usually vintage from
the Victorian and Edwardian periods. List includes dealer name, shop
location, telephone number, and a brief description of items in stock.
http://www.mint.net/antiques/catlist/furs.html, 1030 bytes, 22Feb97" I saw no
direct mention of furs on this address anymore, but you might be lucky at Vintage Gladrags, also on this list.
Being a closet romantic, I would appreciate it greatly if any ladies in
Edwardian furs would take to the streets again. Pictures please!
Wearing Leather Gloves. Although dedicated to gloves, occasionally
fur pictures pop up here too, like right now (go for series 10 and 14).
Update posted November 30 2000 (December 15 1999); it's some time since this
update, but as there are a few furry bits on L.G.'s stylish beauties I
thought I'd tell you anyway.
Béjean - Furs and Wraps. A
site that sells 'vintage designer costume jewellery', but they have a small
fur section too. Pictures, but not very good ones. New January 29 1999.
Bikini Snow Bunnies. Pictures of girls in bikini and in
the snow, some of the pictures fur and fake fur bikinis and other fur items
(try TinoJo Bagne, Kim Egler, Rikki Rife, and groups). Updates weekly on
Mondays. New December 17 (before 12) 1999 (Redox NTC), update posted January
31 (26), try Marla Duncan and Jodie Meares.
BJ's on the Net. A sample page of a
nude model site; she is wearing (loosely speaking) a beautiful red fox coat.
Pictures could have been bigger though - and should be, certainly before you
pay any money. N u d i t y. New November 13, 1998.
Jan Blankenstein. Pictures of a
fetishistic (a mistress and a tv) wedding in Amsterdam. The bride wears
rather campy fake fur. No n u d i t y, but not everybody's cup of tea
either. Slow link. New March 31 1999.
Buy a fur coat. Private ad of
someone who wants to sell a full size black dyed fox coat. Four pictures.
New May 28, 1998.
Jo Champa. This page for the
model/actress contains some stylish black and white pictures of her wearing
designs by Tivioli. New June 7 1999.
CNN's Elsa Klensch does Style on CNN, and
therefore fur. Just use their search engine with 'fur'; latest an item about
the Fall 2000 collection of Michael Kors. New entry
February 29 2000. (Sheeny), update posted January 20 (17) 2001 (Lynx), the
bizarre and glamorous
fashion of Hongkong.
Cocowboy. Just about the
most basic web page I know, but the picture(s), belong to some auction
probably, is/are nice. New July 15 1999.
A second hand fashion shop with a small but yummy
fur department. A
handful of pictures. New entry January 21 2002 (November 18 2001) (HackJack).
Dee. Page of
woman in fur and underwear on an a d u l t site. The fur is too thin and the
girl is ... well, she looks friendly enough. Not quite my cup of tea, but
some of my best friends like it, so faites vos jeux. New
December 17 (13) 1999 (DP).
Defilés Paris. A site with runway pictures from Paris, or
as Lynx put it, `a French Firstview'. Smaller, slower, but entirely free.
New entry November 9 (August 27) 1999. (Lynx / NTC)
D.G. Line. Italian
directory with fur addresses. New entry and update February 29 (28) 2000.
in earmuffs. New entry October 20 (9) 2000.
Eastrc. Chinese fur and leather directory
listing. New entry March 18 2000. (Elli)
E-bay. An online auction with a fair
offering of furs. There has been some discussion about the accuracy of the
descriptions, but errors seem to be due to lack of know-how rather than to
malevolence. Caveat emptor, and watch the pictures closely. New January 12
The English Lady. A 'pay' site by an exhibitionist
lady, a sufficient number of samples, partly in a (fake?) fur coat. New
April 24 1999.
Excite Commerce Inc. A boring but practical directory
listing of furriers, courtesy of Excite. New entry March 18 2000. (Elli)
The Fable of Sable. In spite of the
name the fur picture on this site concerns a Lynx, but anyway ... it's a
nice one. New May 28 1998.
Fashionshowroom. A collection of fur fashion for
the 98-99 fall/winter season, a discovery of the infatigable Lynx. Beautiful
pictures but and it seems they're using bigger pictures now (you can order
hard copies) - great. New August 26 1998. The main page has a link to the '99 fall/winter fashion:
update posted November 30 (September 29) 1999.
Multimedia Search. Anything vaguely related to
fur, including your favorite pet, but some nice stuff too. One for a rainy,
quiet day on the net. New December 7 2000 (NTC)
Fendi. The nagging suspicion that there is not a
single hair of fur on the site of the divine sisters. To see actual Fendi
furs go to Firstview and Moda Italia. New April 22 1998.
France. An adult site with many fur fetish pictures,
I'm told. Some free (and adult) samples. New November 17 2000.
Firstview. An immense collection of
fashion pictures, some of which with fur. Try Galliano, Fendi, Sophie Sitbon,
YSL, etc. etc. Update Pret a Porter posted September 16 1999, update posted
Haute Couture January 27 (21) 2000.
Fraser's Furs. Accessories, hats,
slippers, rugs and 'novelties'. If you live outside the USA, check with
local customs if you are allowed to import some of this stuff. New September 5
Fur Bear. Have grandma's coat changed into a p lushie
for her grandchild. One picture of a lady in fur.
Fur and Fashion Frankfurt
(Fair), Germany, Frankfurt am Main. A large site worth a browse, but it could do
with some updating here and there. If you want some pictures there is a
animation). New entry June 22 2000,
update August 24 2001.
Furinternet.it. An Italian fur directory with some info
added in the biblioteca. Just in case you wondered what the Latin
name for `puma' is (Puma coats?! Hm ...) Could be a nice idea, but it still
needs some work and it will all depend if the webmasters are prepared to
maintain it - which they're usually not, after the initial zeal dies down. New entry February 29 (27) 2000. (Lynx)
Article about an all-to-temporary exhibition (one night, and by invitation
only) in Paris of an apartment completely `furnished' in fur and `lived in'
by models dressed in fur. I suppose security was a problem for a longer
event, but how about a full scale web exhibition, Saga? New entry October 20
(9) 2000. (NTC)
and fur. With the current Ghaurifest going on in the NTC upload area
(please send your own pictures of her if they aren't there yet), I thought I
couldn't withhold this one from you. It's an article about the supermodel
and her attitude towards fur. New entry January 15 2000.
Gala Revue HB. I'm not exactly sure what this is, but it looks like a
on demand fashion show involving (among others things) some feather and fur.
Could be adult-ish. New entry August 26 2001. (Jaco)
Glacier Wear. Fur
Blanket and pelts. The pictures would have to be bigger to add some
excitement to this site. New entry January 15 2000. (Chris)
Golden Fleece Imports. Imports of
sheepskin and wool. The nicest picture is too heavily compressed - a shame.
Italy. A number of pictures of models in fur coats. New entry March 23 2000
Guida alla Pellicceria. An online directory of fur
businesses in Italy. Current addresses mainly of Milan region. New May 5
Hanlno Leather. In spite of the name, this Chinese
firm has a fur department and there is a nice but small fur animation on the
site. New entry February 29 2000 (1999) (Lynx).
Heavenly Gloves Homepage, by TklshGuy. Which means: lots of
gloves, but quite some furs too. 'New Scans' pages. Also see Furocious Women
in Fur. New entry November 27 (14) 1999 but TG has been working at it after
Hong Kong Fur
& Fashion Fair 2000 - on Global Sources. Lots of practical
information, and some small pictures of typically Chinese fur designs. New
entry June 22 2000.
Jean's. An online fashion
store, and they have a fur department, but apart from a very small pictures
and the message 'winter fur clearance now in progress' (is it, still?) there
is not much to see. Under construction. New January 29 1999.
Josephine, Japan, apparently a fashion house. Not much,
but it's a start. This must be the first Japanese site involving fur on the
Soft Spot, although Japan is as good a fur country as any. So, there must be
more. Anyone with an adequate smattering of Japanese to find some more sites
in Japan, you're most welcome. Domo ... Also look here.
New entry August 14 2000 (December 10 1999). (Rotwang)
Charles Jourdan. Shoes and
accessories, but no fur here (or I did fail to spot it). However, a very
smooth, advanced and state of the art design and that is why I include it
here anyway. Worth a look if you want to have a site that really looks
professional. The structure is rather complex and one might miss one or two
things here and there; don't forget to push the arrow buttons (like I tend
to do) if you want to see everything.
Kipping. Apparently another German dummy site
(compare A.M. Furs on this page, and Wüstenberg in the Furriers Section).
Or, you're a tobacco wholesaler and you're decorating your site with fur
pictures. Not that I mind, get me right ... New entry February 18 2000
(November 5 1999). (Lynx SSFF)
Christina Lam, Miss Illinois USA
1999. This lovely page is a reminder to the good old days when the winners
of beauty pageants got one or more fur coats to show off. Also a sign of
life of Jordan Furs here (anybody remember their web page ...?) New February
Lisa Infurred. A gorgeous model showing an
equally gorgeous lynx-dyed fox jacket, that has been for sale on E-bay
lately. New entry February 18 2000. (Kingtiger / NTC)
Lucy's Fur Coat. Various info, no
pictures, about this 1951 episode from I love Lucy. New June 13
Lyne's Creations. For the truly artistically-minded among us, an
award-winning tutorial how to render animal furs using Bryce and Photoshop (if
Photoshop is beyond your wallet - like it is beyond mine - Paintshop Pro will
do too). Very instructive, but don't expect this to be a quick fix - drawing
fur is hard work even for the most powerful rendering computers, so expect to
invest some sweat yourself too. New August 19 (March 11) 2001.
M.F.M. (Fossati). Italy, Garbagnate Milanese. In
case you wondered where grey leopard with 10 cm spots live, or blue tigers
(etc.) I.e., these people do the spots, not the fur. Still under
construction, but a nice collection of their work in magazines in the past.
Work for Valentino among others. New June 22 (April 8) 2000. (Lynx SSFF)
nice fur department. New entry May 29 2001. (Hack_Jack)
Vicky Mar Fashions,
Australia, Sydney. Being in a rather Ozzie State of Mind, I went through the
Australian yellow pages and came up with this one: a fashion house with some
fur and fake fur models. They have a separate illustrated `Yellow Pages' page too. New
March 18 (February 13) 2000.
Italy, Pescara. With
a name like that, I hope these people will get down to making a serious site
sometime; for now it's just a single page with a cute drawing, and it seems
this firm is just concerned with storage and maintenance of furs. New August
14 2000 (December 2 1999). (Lynx SSFF)
Moscow Hide and Furs. An feathers and fur skins trader -
no coats, just the basic material. There is an interesting fox color guide - a great help in
knowing your blue from your white fox, in you weren't good at that sort of
thing. New January 23 1999.
My Red. Ad for a CDrom you
can order, a number of the pictures involve a nice looking lady in a white
fur coat. New March 16 1999, updated May 4 1999.
York. Fashion Store, currently no fur (summer collection), but keep an eye
on them when fall comes. As a proper online store it has its teething
problems: the pictures are very small and their 'zoom' feature just a blurry
excuse for what could have been - okay if you want new curtains, but giving
no idea of the texture of your furs. New entry April 7 2001.
The auctioned fur collection of a cross-dressing artist,
but unfortunately the auction is over. Some one of a kind, nostalgic furs.
Don't forget to scroll down at each page. New August 23 2001 (October 17
somewhere in Europe; don't you love a secret? Fashion shop site, with two
pages about furs. Nostalgic-classic design. Try explaining about the blue
fox dyed brown to someone who knows little about fur ... (`No, actually
it's kind of gray') New entry October 27 (March 3) 2000. (NTC)
North Beach Leather,
USA (shops at several places). A leather shop, but with lots of fur trims and
collars. Nice, smooth pictures. New entry September 11 2001 (Del Boy)
Larisa Oleynik Net. A site devoted to
actress Larisa Oleynik - in the gallery you will find some
pictures of her in fake fur. If you are a user of Winamp (the shareware mp3-player) or (like
me) of Linas Purinis' EasyCD cdplayer (with is
largely customisable with Winamp skins; but note, it's a beta), go to the L.O.N. software
section to the software section to download this
The picture on the skin is in the gallery too. New May 7 1999.
Online Fur Auction. Reported to be the
British Columbia equivalent of the E-bay online auctions, but less to offer,
apparently. New March 16 1999.
Orylag, France. Fake or real? An effort to
produce fur that's (even) better than what we have today. New entry March 18
(February 3) 2000. (FK)
Fur section of a fashion shop. New entry January 20
2001 (November 16 2000), update posted April 6 (4) 2001.
Page to start. A sort of Soft Spot without the pictures,
the comments, the ratings and the dashing Mondriaan-esque red, white and
blue colour scheme of Yours Faithfurry. For the record: not 'over 500 links'
but around 320. New June 21 (May 18) 2000.
Pellesimo, France, Paris. In spite of the
name, fashion with some fur and mostly leather. New June 22 2000 (December 1
1999). (Chris SSFF)
Prato Immagine e Belleza '97. I am not sure what this is, but I
do know that I like it. Apparently the good town of Prato hosted a web
camera project in '97, and one of the spots where they put a camera was at a
fur fashion show. Just one tiny point of criticism: why didn't you tell us
earlier?!!! But apart from that, this weeks winner. Go for pellicceria (1),
(2), (3) and don't forget 'Sotto la pelliccia'. New September 5 1998.
Pelzmesse Frankfurt. The site of the
great fur & fashion fair in Frankfurt, small site but to the point if
you want to go there. Including the possibility to order tickets online. New
March 29 1999 and still online.
Revillon (3). A small gallery of Revillon coats and
accesories. New entry March 23 2000 (December 22 1998). (Lynx SSFF)
Rosenoir Leather and
Furs, Canada. Just a general access page to Rosenoir proper (just
leather there) and to Bod & Christensen (fur, see the Soft Spot's
Furrier Section). One nice picture though. New entry August 14 2000
(November 23 1999).
Fashion Guide, Russia. Milage may vary, but in the right season news and
pictures about fur pop up, even on the main page. New entry October 20 2000.
A small page about the history of the Russian fur business, on the site of a
travel agency. A small but nice picture. New January 15 2000 (Fur Queen/NTC).
Russian Sable - The
pinnacle of luxury. After months and months of lurking, Alice's
sable coat took the plunge, came out of the closet and got itself a web page
... How very! My message to all mink, fox and lynx coats out there: don't
wait for that mouse potato that owns you, get online yourself ...
SABX - fur products. Import and export front door page of their
fur department, two so-so pictures. New July 16 1999.
5th Avenue, USA,
New York. Go, to the 'Women' section, and then look under Robes,
click on the pictures and then click on 'Enlarge' - they have drawn some
attention in fur circles already. Sweet dreams. New entry November 30 2000
Italy. One page site, but a handful of very beautiful pictures of
interesting coats. New May 29 2001. (Hack_Jack)
Er otica. A page with 'toys' for sale for the fur
inclined ones among us. New January 6 1999.
Valdivi. A furrier in
Granada, Spain. Not much - the basic rules of fur care en español
and the same in translation software-English. And a terribly mutilated picture that's supposed to
serve as an ad. Ouch. The girl can't have been that ugly ... New
July 5 1999.
Valentine Furs. Two beautiful fur
coats for sale, a handful of very nice pictures of a lynx, but there's a
mink too. New March 14 1999.
Wild Bill's Furs. An online
store with (sheep) rugs and other various home decor accessories. New
February 14 1999.
USA, Cave Junction OR. Furry Hats.New entry March 18 2000 (September 23
Yahoo auctions. An online auction
specialised in furs, well worth a visit. New January 12 1999.
