Get the Fuzz: Mohair

Armani, Celine, Angelo Marani

In the new cold season, designers are determined to protect the connoisseurs of fashion from frost by offering several furry trends. One of them is mohair - a cozy yarn and woven fabric made of fur of Angora goats. The Fall/Winter 2013-2014 runway collections presented a lot of different models of mohair for every taste, including some pretty extravagant and unusual solutions.  Making a huge comeback this Fall, mohair appeared on almost anything, from sweaters and dresses to even coats and pants. This cool alternative to fur was present in boldly colored and printed collections of almost every designer, including: Céline, Armani, Pucci and Alexander Wang, just to name a few.

Coats made of mohair are one of the highlights of the season.



The most extravagant and daring use of this material is displayed in pants, suits and even dresses. Mohair has a bright texture and for Fall/Winter 2013-2014 the designers often combine it with fur, leather and knitted fabrics, like wool.
