On brisk city streets, at least those of Milan, Paris and New York, fur coats are commonplace. And designer Sally LaPointe knows just how much the fashion flack adores the fuzz. “There’s lots of fur in this collection,” she told Observer before her Fall/Winter 2016 show. “We love fur!”

Rather than reaching for a common mink or chinchilla, the designer put her own twist on pelts, showing them in vibrant hues and adding them into outfits in unexpected ways. Take a look at our favorite fur iterations.

An intricate gold embroidery is eye catching, but so is a cape, especially when it’s lined with an impressive swash of fur.

Not quite a full jacket, this bolero offers is a brilliant layering piece, to go on top of everything.
