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.

2.The patchwork fuzz
3. The Grouch hat
4. The Rainbow Brite gilet
5. Stripes of fluff
6. Hold the rainbow
Avoid the matt-finish Oscar is soo keen on by steering clear of heavy downpours – and his grotty ‘tude by accessorising with a smile.
