Into the Wild
By Jenny Bahn
Animal print coats — cheetah, in particular — have always been a little too, well, feral for my tastes. For whatever reason, it’s never been something I could pull off. That doesn’t stop me from appaulding the girls who do and can (Kate Moss for Supreme, anyone?). When considering a fur coat, I like to stay as animal friendly as I can, and I’m a big advocate of vintage for the sole reason that you’re not putting new demand for a product that sometimes utilizes inhumane practices. If you’re going to stay warm this winter, try to be as animal friendly as possible and, if you must go for fur, buy a gently used one. Here are some cheetah-print coats I found on eBay, as well as some pretty swank vintage furs.
