Forget fake furs made from synthetic plushy fabrics–Kiev-based fashion label Ksenia Schnaider is here to give you a much more naturally made fur alternative. After its “Demi-Denims” (a tricky jeans style with a shorts-worn-over-long-trousers look) conquered street style galleries and Instagram last year, the wife-and-husband duo has come up with another unique denim “it” piece for the colder season: Denim fur.
Using its own “authoring technology,” the plushy denim pieces are totally handmade in a process that takes about one week per item. Denim stripes are cut, sewn on canvas and then cut again in a special way before the pieces are stonewashed in a machine. Ksenia Schnaider’s denim fur coats come in three lengths (mini, midi and maxi) and two colors (light and dark blue). They will hit stores in February/March as part of the brand’s cruise collection and prices will start from $600.
Ksenia Schnaider is currently sold via designer stores including Stylebob, Selfridges and Moda Operandi.
