Denim and Fur are Having a Mixed-Media Moment at Coterie

Join us on January 26 at 11 am ET for a webinar with Lenzing, TextileGenesis and sustainable brand ArmedAngels for a discussion on how they’re using Fibercoin technology to realize traceability’s benefits to sustainability, brand loyalty and risk mitigation.

Denim has long been–and will continue to be–a wardrobe staple, but now the mixed-media trend is giving fashion denim a bit of fun and glamour with the inclusion of fur.

Oxan Inc., through its core Autunno fur and leather label, was showing jean jackets mixed with real fur—made of fox, mink and raccoon—at the Coterie Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan this week. One denim jacket had a black Persian lamb collar and cuffs. Others went distressed with body-lined fur options or fur trim just at the collar. Retail price points started at $295.

While mixed-media has been in fashion for the last 15 to 20 years, Oxan founder Emre Oksan, said he only began including denim in September with the introduction of two styles and he’s since expanded to six. The company makes its jean jackets in Turkey, using denim manufactured in Turkey, and the fur options are sourced from Spain, Italy, Finland and New Zealand.

For the contemporary fashionista that wants the glam, without real fur, Sanctuary Clothing offered two jean jackets with a faux fur collar and a body-liner that could be zipped out. One faux fur option featured a trendy leopard print that wholesaled for $49, or about $159 at retail.

At Driftwood Jeans, much of the fashion denim included colorful, embroidered floral patterns, whether down a sleeve or the side of a jean leg. Simpler styles featured colorful stitching down the side of a full-length jean or pair of shorts. Some of the shorts also featured a tribal-effect embroidered stripe down the leg.

“Everybody wants something different to sell,” Randi Goldman, the sales representative for Driftwood, said. “Sixty percent of the line has the embroidery. The rest is on-trend novelty.”

For spring and summer, buyers’ favorites included flared hemlines and crops with wide, embroidered patterns at the hemlines. Both the jeans and jackets had wholesale price points ranging from $53 to $78.
