All things old are new again and it seems like carrying or wearing a muff is no exception. Don’t know what a muff is? Well, for the younger generation a muff is basically a hand warmer. It's usually made of fur and considered a fashion accessory. At least it used to be considered a fashion accessory since the muff has been nothing more than a memory in fashion history. That is until Pamela Simon decided to reintroduce this piece of vintage couture into our wardrobes.
Inspired by the looks and elegance of eras past Pamela Simon has chosen to marry the old with new in her rendition of the muff to create a more elegance appearance in women and stray away from the casual dress so often seen today that in her opinion is “sloppy”.
“There is a trend that is slowly emerging that speaks of a move away from sloppy casual dress to one of simple elegance mixed with creativity. Europeans still dress well and young Euros follow trends while maintaining a great sense of style that shies away from sweat clothes as street wear. A great pair of gloves, shoes, a purse, hat, and a muff can make any outfit look much more beautiful."
By proving that being classy and chic can be obtained by the addition of a beautiful accessory hr muffs are truly versatile. Not just a hand warmer, the muff is designed to be resemblant of a shoulder purse. With interior pockets to hold your necessities like a cellphone and money, many of the muffs also come with a chain handles or straps. Not only are they great for cold days but can accent any evening or work outfit as well. The muffs are also unisex as some of them are meant to be worn by men.
By using real fur in her production, Pamela Simon knows the repercussions that come with this. But by using real fur versus fake fur she feels that it is more eco-friendly as fake fur can have a level of toxicity and does not break down well in landfills. Pamela, a Canadian designer feels that her designs and new elegant take on the muff will prove to be a decadent yet edgy addition to any wardrobe.
