This season sees more designers jumping on the anti-fur bandwagon (take a bow, Stella McCartney), which has resulted in more experimental winter fabrics being used on the catwalk. Top of the list this season is shearling, or lambskin, which has a similar soft and fuzzy texture to fur. It appeared on cool cover-ups ranging from oversized fringed coats at Etro, to gilets at Mulberry.
