Love or Hate: Dries Van Noten marabou shrug

I’m all for using a bit of fur to instantly glamorise a look. For me, fur connotes luxury, opulence and grandeur.

A perfect example of someone who wears fur well is Kate Moss. When she rocked up at the Isle of Wight festival last year in a vintage fur shawl, she was the girl everybody there wanted to be. Her black and grey number looked super-glam, and even teamed with denim shorts and boots, it made her turn heads.

With this in mind, I cannot get my head around Dries Van Noten’s blue shrug. Made from marabou feathers and silk, this shrug is certainly luxurious, but it’s just too fluffy and too… blue.

I’m not entirely sure where you would wear it, either. It would be a bit much for daytime and odd against jeans. Even worse, it has the potential to distract from a great dress in the evening.

Sorry Dries Van Noten, this is less Kate Moss and more Cookie Monster if you ask me.
