Fur was all over the runway and appeared everywhere from the expected (coats, shawls, scarves, stoles), to the unexpected (skirts, rings, shirt hems) this season. One of the most surprisingly recurring places for fur to appear, however, was on sleeves and Jason Wu, Herve Leger, and BCBG were among those that did it best.
Leather is a given for most Fall collections, but it made up the bulk of the memorable looks in a number of collections this season. It came in a slew of colors and showed up unexpectedly as accent details on floor length gowns. See DKNY, Derek Lam, and Thakoon.
