On & Around the Street

TREND: MUPPET COATS

Fashion trend: fall 2017 fluffy coats
Fendi, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Versace

Pink, purple, postbox-red, baby blue… The autumn/winter 2017 catwalks were all a-fluff with joyously coloured furry coats.

In fact, there were so many on the Miu Miu runway that Love magazine editor Katie Grand, recognising a visual sympathy with The Muppets, put the beloved characters (Miss Piggy, Kermit, Camilla The Chicken et al), on seven different covers of its latest issue, alongside Blake Lively and Hailey Baldwin, and hosted a “Disco Galactica” party with Miu Miu and the Muppets during London Fashion Week last month.

Yes, fluffy Muppet coats are having a moment, seen also on the runways of Prada, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Fendi and lots more.

The bigger, brighter, fluffier, the better. Here is our edit of the best furry coats on Sloane Street now…
