Stella McCartney and Gucci battled it out at the 2015 Pre-Fall with shag fur accents on their clothing. Mongolian lamb trim adorned the edges of oversized coats at Gucci, while the “fur-free fur” was thrown on at Stella McCartney. Colors of the fur ranged from pale pink to bright orange at McCartney.

Along with the fur at Gucci, the pre-fall collection displayed reds, blues, and blacks in seventies-style maxis, suits, chiffon blouses, and patterned blazers, while at Stella McCartney there were trenches, culottes, wigs(!), and knit dresses with knit leggings hiding out among the fur.
Who did it best and why the sudden obsession with shag fur? Only Stella and Alessandro Michele really know. 😉
