Faux fur from Helen Moore

by

Faux fur from Helen Moore is the best Winter (and beyond) accessory for a vintage girl. And if you wonder who would wear faux fur in the Summer, wonder no more because I definitely would wear it regardless of the season. Their sumptuous and very 1930s looking Slim Vixen scarf being the perfect example, as it would make for an ideal addition to a vintage floor length evening gown. It would also look divine paired with a couture blouse with short sleeves and a longer 1940s skirt.

I have already mentioned this British brand, synonymous with luxury faux fur, in my article ‘Winter essentials for the vintage girl’. If you haven’t read it as yet, perhaps take a look at it, as it has a lot of tips on how to stay warm during the Winter season without compromising the vintage look! But I wanted to return to reviewing them again now, as winter is still with us and it’s so refreshing to finally find a contemporary brand, that creates beautiful, vintage-inspired faux fur accessories without compromising on the quality of their products. Everything is designed and hand-made in Devon, the Helen Moore brand being a family run business, which explains perhaps why so much attention is paid to every detail, resulting in very happy costumers and devoted fans, who, like me, will always return for more!

 

Even though there are many contemporary pieces in Helen Moore’s collections, perfect for the modern woman, as a vintage girl I’m obviously drawn to vintage-inspired accessories. I’m told that my favourite Slim Vixen Scarf, was based on a fox fur that Helen’s mother wore. Same as the lovely Tippet scarf, obviously at that time made of a real fur. As I am someone who chooses not to wear real fur, to find a real purveyor of faux fur is a sheer delight and I love that the brand produces breathtaking, warm pieces that are without a doubt the perfect alternative for those opposed to wearing real fur.

As you can see, the faux fur scarf works great with clothes that can be worn also in the Summer!

    You look stunning and out of this world!
    Also, the faux fur is gorgeous and I don’t understand why anyone would want to wear real fur!
