Fur for spring summer? I hear you. Inspired by organic rocky stone landscapes, ‘Pleasantville’, ‘The Flintstones’ and modern architecture, Shrimps SS15 introduced a new lighter faux fur material, the bright and vivid colour works pretty well with the season. As one of the most sought-after brands in the uK for faux fur, the brand had been working with a lightweight malleable faux pony hair as well as their signature faux fur, short-sleeved jackets, boxy coats and gilets hark back to the 1960’s. Continued to focus on outerwear and accessories, satchel buckle bags feature in structured faux stingray fabric, and a faux jaguar print all look towards rocky textures and ‘The Flintstones’ for inspiration. Canary yellow, dusky violets, pinks, blue and an array of luxurious greys, all inspired by the vibrant colours of artist Henri Matisse, Mexico and architect Luis Barragan. A prominent vertical stripe adds an architectural element to the pieces, emphasizing the beautiful colour combinations.

I know in Hong Kong it’s quite hard to wear faux fur in spring summer, but who says you can’t buy them in spring summer, and wear them in winter?
