"I love fur, I've always used it," Jean Paul Gaultier told press earlier this year. This winter, he's not the only one doing it: real and fake fur is making a real im on everything from wam, silky short jackets to fur-lined accessories.

Gaultier's collection (top left) showcases a selection of fur (foxe, mink and goat, as well as fake). There's "plenty of faux fur, faux printed skins, leather or suede," according to the man himself.

Fur is also present at Hermès, on lapels and linings (top right), while Vanessa Bruno experiments with light, airy effects (right).
