Celine pink fur coat

I saw Kasia Struss in this shot above that appeared in the October 2012 issue of the Flair magazine, and I was immediately in love! I have always been a great admirer of the romantic and feminine style of Kasia Struss, and here, she gives a truly delicate, naive pose... Of course, what stands out most in Kasia's outfit is her fur coat with its bright pink color. A little research revealed that it was a Celine coat and that's the subject of this post. 

This fur coat in the Celine FW2012-13 collection attracted a lot of attention with its pink/fuchsia color. Well, with such a bright color, it is something hard to miss, right?! Since fur is such a precious item, we usually see it in designs that will not go out of fashion in a season or two. But if we are talking about furs designed by a such a luxury fashion house as Celine, there must be a unique angle to them-they must be something eye-popping. This fur coat has some other original features besides its color. For example, it does not sport any collars, which opens up a lot of possibilities in terms of combining the coat with scarves or cowl collar sweaters.

I also would like to point out that the model is wearing a simple white top and a pair of black trousers with this coat. We shall see below that many editorials will either go through the white route or the black route.

Furthermore, the back side of this coat is in a dark neon blue color and has a leather detail. Frankly, both of those elements seem unnecessary to me. As we shall see below, in many fashion editorials only the front side with its bright pink color is featured.

We see Carolyn Murphy in Vogue Korea's November 2012 issue, wearing this coat on her shoulders with an entirely white outfit. Such simplicity suits Celine style well!

From the whites of Caroline Murphy to the blacks of Anna Vyalitsyna'nın in Numero October 2012, we've got the full contast in our hands, right? Just like Caroline, Anna has placed the coat over her shoulders. This makes the collarless design of the coat pop out even further. In the meantime, I would like to take your attention to the black pattern in the fur. Maybe we should not have just called it pink, as it seems there is more to the fur than being simply dyed in pink.

Here we are! If the Celine coat had been made from a wool, cashmere or camel-hair fabric, it would have a monotonous color, but that's not the case. This is a fur coat, not a fabric coat and the fur is a special type of mink, called "cross mink" since the black pattern looks like a cross. The original color of the cross mink is white, with black cross-like markings over it. When it's dyed, the white fur takes up color easily, while the black fur stays black and the original, natural pattern is preserved. The pattern of nature that is worth imitating...

Next up, Nadja Bender in Vogue China October 2012 issue. She is wearing the coat over a white body. The pink color is so dominant that stylists go either the white way or the black way...

This shot is from an editorial called "Fierce Creatures" by the renowned photographer Patrick Demarchelier and it is from the August issue of the W magazine. The models are Zuzanna Bijoch, Magda Laguinge and Meghan Collison but which one is wearing our Celine coat, I could not determine. Again we see the coat styled with blacks and whites.

The US edition of the Elle magazine had a "pink explosion" collage page in December that has the Celine coat as its main feature! It's perfect for the girls going crazy after polyvore.com, but this much pink might give others a heart attack!

In December Celine opened a shop in Beijing, China and the Chinese actress Huo Siyan attended the opening as the resident celebrity. Since this is a Celine shop opening, and since Huo Siyan was "invited" by Celine (possibly even paid for it), it was appropriate for her to wear Celine. We see the pink fur coat worn with blacks and whites again.

Finally, the online shopping site luisaviaroma.com has this coat and as you see how it is presented, we see the same black-white styling there, too. It is interesting to see all these fashion editors and stylists "converging" on the same idea.
