Fashspiration of the week // Oscar the Grouch and Fendi fluff

Cast your mind back to AW11, Gucci’s 90th anniversary show gave coloured fur a grown-up luxe 70’s vibe. Fast forward to 2013 and statement texture is back on the radar.

And although the 70’s influence is still apparent, our muses are less glossy than a Roxy Music album cover model. Think a touch of *sweetness and light* Rainbow Brite meets *Grade A MOFO* Oscar from Sesame Street, grouching about in his trashcan.


Fendi set the tone with their monster collection. Boggle-eyed bag bugs embody the foppish flourish that only a touch of bright fuzz can bring.


Off the catwalk and in the real world, fans are looking to bright faux and shearling options for a monster touch. See below for an inspired fancy fluff edit.

Avoid the matt-finish Oscar is soo keen on by steering clear of heavy downpours – and his grotty ‘tude by accessorising with a smile.
