If a fur has been dyed and no longer resembles the animal, does this alter how we feel about it?
As someone who loves luxurious furs on the runway, I still can't wrap my head around wearing the real thing. Though I respect these designers, I remain an advocate for faux fur because I can't fathom myself wearing an animal over my shoulders.
But, what if it's blue? Or green? Or orange?

Can this trend translate onto the streets (and not just the fashion week streets)?

If you already feel comfortable in a fur, then should a coloured fur feel different?
If you're inclined to test out this trend, start small. Try a fur stole or a hat in a bold red or purple. Explore your options. If Karl did it, that means it can be done. After all, it's about time we make a statement, no?
