Coat season is upon us and just in time to brighten up your outerwear options, Diane von Furstenberg and Apparis joined forces for a collection of '70s-inspired faux fur coats.
The storied fashion house and rising vegan fur brand's first collaboration includes four coat styles—all of which fuse Apparis' classic styles with DVF's signature prints and colors. The end result? Bold, statement-making coats that won't make you dread bundling up this winter.
Offered in bright neon yellow, a colorful turquoise print, eggplant, and a neutral '70s print channeling DVF's founding decade, the collection's styles range from $345 - $470.
Along with many other leading fashion houses, Diane von Furstenberg announced it would officially be going fur free in 2018. That same year, Apparis launched its debut collection of cruelty-free, 100% vegan outerwear. And as many modern-day relationships, the two female-led brands first met on Instagram when DVF’s CEO, Sandra Campos, reached out to Apparis’ founder, Lauren Nouchi, via DM. The rest, as they say, is history.
"DVF’s core purpose is to support women and fortunately, the brand is able to have established a platform to do so across several channels including partnerships. As a fellow female-led and female-founded business, Apparis has made vegan products chic," a statement from the brand read. "DVF banned the use of real fur in our products, therefore finding Apparis’s ethically sourced, bold and colorful jackets was the perfect match for this collaboration."
