>> I’ve been sweating it out during the summer months to talk up all things furry and fraggle-esque (faux of course). First I was honoured to be a part of Hannah Weiland aka creator of faux furry fun label Shrimps‘ gang in the new issue of Elle Collections. Weiland’s nickname may have been Shrimps (hence the name of her label) because of her diminutive size but she’s definitely influenced a big wave of unusually coloured furry fraggle seen everywhere from high end to the high street. Hence, why I self-styled a story along with a write-up in the current September issue of Teen Vogue, which featured AW14 pieces of furry specimens. You can read and laugh as I attempt to give ‘tips’ (no seriously… isn’t that just one big LOL?) on how to handle these Muppet-inspired outer shells. But the truth of the matter is that it’s a material that doesn’t want to be taken seriously anyway so you may as well just go along with the silliness and happy-happy vibes of it all.
Here are some extra shots from my furry Teen Vogue feature… they are supposed to be three distinct ways of wearing fun fur but in the end, I basically went for the pile-it-on, pile-it-high and hope-for-the-best approach. It may or may not have worked out but who cares when you’re masquerading as a soft toy? Someone will at least want to give you a giant hug when the months get colder, even if they’re not quite ready to channel the furriest of Muppets.
