All the Best Faux Furs from Simone Rocha
These furs are unreal! Literally. Simone Rocha's Fall 2017 fashion show in London this weekend was full of chic furs—only, wait for it...they were all faux. One of the special things about London Fashion Week is that fur is taboo there, so to be en vogue, all warm and fuzzy pieces have to be faux. Therefore, all the luxe looks you see on the runway are happily cruelty-free. (Side note, we just have to award extra points to Rocha this season for casting models of diverse ages, including the venerable Benedetta Barzini and Jan de Villeneuve.)
But back to those "furs." In Rocha's fall arsenal, there were soft and fluffy shoes, oversized, belted coats, and large-and-in-charge accent pieces that are clearly not your grandma's stoles.

There is much to covet, so we've compiled our (ample) wish list of favorite faux furs from the show. Which one will you like best?
This red-embellished number is one of the more fun stoles we've come across in our lives—a great way to add excitement to winter dressing.
This luxe belted coat on iconic model Jan de Villeneuve? We'll take one each.
Talk about belting—this one, also in rich, contrasting faux fur, adds a flattering cinch to the waist of the capacious coat.
Matching your shoes to your stole? CHIC. A thousand times chic! And while we're at it, can we talk about those shoes?
Looking for a way to dip your toe into the trend? (Yes, pun intended.) Here's where to start.
The final verdict? We should all be going to great lengths for our fuzzy coats this season. That is, we will be opting for long, mid-calf or even ankle-skimming ones for maximum warmth and style. And rule of thumb for that lapel? Bigger is better.
