The pack of lioness-inspired styles on the catwalk last week in New York was enough to make this fashion cat purr. While fur is usually a staple in fall designer collections, designers this year played with fur beyond the obvious ways: in the form of rich accents and details like Jason Wu's snuggly clutches, Sally LaPointe's fox fur paneled turtleneck, and Brandon Sun's fur-embellished sweater. Other highlights from the runway include Marchesa's magnificent cream fur shawl and Michael Kors's luxurious grayscale cape. There's no question about it -- Fall 2014 is going to be a furry one. (Eco-conscious side note: I only purchase/wear faux fur… unless it's vintage. Ok, PETA?).
