JUNE MINK OFFER TO SET RECORD,
QUESTION IF IT CAN BE ABSORBED,
LOW PRICES ENABLE SPECULATION,
N.Y., MONTREAL MFRS. MARK TIME,
WILD FURS MOVE AT NORTH BAY



THIS YEAR’S FINAL MAJOR ROUND OF AUCTIONS GETS UNDER WAY THIS WEEK AND THE INTERNATIONAL TRADE IS HOLDING ITS COLLECTIVE BREATH REGARDING ITS OUTCOME.
Although mink prices have stabilized after tumbling from the peaks reached three years ago – and have even begun to edge back up – the June round poses a critical test of the market. Among the four auction companies, the offerings will total about 16 million mink, an all-time record for a single month. That in itself might not be a problem in normal times.

BUT HARDLY ANYONE WOULD CONSIDER AN ALREADY SATURATED MARKET AS NORMAL OR CAPABLE OF EASILY ABSORBING THAT MANY SKINS ALL AT ONCE. The recent retail season could hardly be described as successful in many markets, particularly in the dominant Chinese and Russian markets. Both of those countries were described as overstocked going into the season and retailers met resistance at every step of the way as a result of a mostly mild winter and economic factors, including China’s slowing economic growth and the international sanctions against Russia for its actions with regard to Ukraine. The ruble lost more than half its value and consumers lost their spending power. Similar conditions dampened the season’s retail sales elsewhere as well, but none were as important as China and Russia, which have accounted for the vast majority of the mink sold in recent years.

ALTHOUGH THE MARKET HAS STABILIZED, THIS MONTH’S RECORD OFFERING OF 16 MILLION MINK, ACCORDING TO SOME VETERANS, COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE. The situation is being closely watched for the effect the results could have on the value of skin and garment stocks in the hands of dealers, manufacturers and retailers, as well as retail prices in the approaching fall-winter season. Much will depend on the capital strength of major buyers, particularly the Chinese, and their willingness to speculate at the current, relatively low prices. The auction houses, among other incentives, are offering to store purchases free of charges for up to two years under certain conditions.

MEN EMBRACE FUR – FUR BREAKS 60% MARK IN MEN’S AW 16 COLLECTIONS

Fur stole the show during the recent men’s AW collections, proving that it’s not just for women, with an estimated 63% of shows overall including this most versatile of materials. The icy weather that finally descended on Europe and North America in time for the shows was a perfect backdrop to this catwalk trend, which we are likely to see, translated into every day fashion.

In the first of the shows in London, 28 of the 60 designers (47%), including Astrid Anderson, Coach 1941 and JW Anderson used fur across accessories, coats, and jackets. The true showstoppers of the day were the oversized and over-¬‐fluffed coats showcased by Burberry and Coach 1941.

However, fur made its biggest impact during Milan Men’s Fashion Week AW16, with a majority – 35 out of 38 designers (92%) – crafting beautiful garments with the material; from Dolce & Gabbana’s oversized coats to the fur stoles of Marni. One collection that really caught the imagination of those in attendance was Moncler’s AW 16 collection, with the French-¬‐Italian lifestyle brand assembling coloured furs in a patchwork effect to create a dramatic camouflage collection.

Next up in Paris, 32 of the 49 designers (65%) incorporated a range of furs, from Boris Bidjan Saberi’s black drop-¬‐crotch fur shorts to Valentino’s longline mixed pelt gilets. Whilst the gothic punk stylings of Rick Owens shocked with a blend of horror films and furs, it was Louis Vuitton that caught the essence of sartorial Paris.

Mark Oaten, CEO of International Fur Federation (IFF), said: “It’s brilliant to see this season's men’s collections making huge fur style statements. Designers are sending men down runways in a wide range of wearable fur styles: everything from the modern bomber, fur trimmed parka and the classic coat with an oversized fur collar or stole as a modern twist. None of these would look out of place in any major city across the globe. Admittedly the more whimsical animal prints and full fur garments might raise a few eyebrows, but all in all, more and more men are comfortable wearing fur, and it's a trend you can't ignore.”

ANNUAL FUR FESTIVAL TAKES PLACE IN ALASKA, USA
Native Alaskans have handcrafted such boots for centuries. The outer layer is traditionally made from sealskin, to make the footwear waterproof, while the fur lining provides warmth. For Eskimos in the wilderness, warm, dry feet can mean the difference between life and death.

HISTORY OF THE HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY
One of the oldest continuous companies in the world is the Hudson’s Bay Company, and its oldest tradition is the fur trade.
Founded in 1670, it built its reputation and many fortunes for investors, on the lucrative fur trade. In the early years, the “new world” became a rich source of furs for Europe especially beaver pelts used for Europe’s fashionable hats. A war was even fought for territory and control of the furs, called the Beaver wars. That tradition ended on January 30, 1991.

GALLERY OF THE BEST STREET STYLE FUR LOOKS FROM NEW YORK MENS FASHION WEEK

New York's Fashion Week Peacocks Show You Every Way to Wear Fur This Winter
During a fall season beset by snow and plummeting temperatures, a chic coat is a must for any street style star. And, with colorful collars on dark, brooding outerwear to shearling jackets to plush, luxurious coats, it seems that fur, real or faux, is the optimal way to stay warm on the streets of the city during New York Fashion Week:

WILD FUR AUCTION RESULTS

As trapping season winds down, the fur auction season ramps up and, in this seasonal transition, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is coyote fur prices remain stable — or even up depending on the grade of fur being sold. The bad news is that most other major furs are down, or steady at best.

BLUE FOXS ARE IN DEMAND

Over half a million blue fox skins were sold at Saga Furs auction on their March 2017 auction. The average price was around 90 euros per skin. Last year was bad with prices below production costs, but the upturn began in the December auction and looks like it will continue…

FUR IS BACK IN FASHION

Fur, fake and otherwise, is back in fashion and it’s bigger and brighter than ever… but was it really ever gone? Certainly not from the backs of Kendall Jenner and US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who kept themselves shielded from the cold streets of Paris during Fashion Week. Both have been long-time fur fans, despite the controversy surrounding it.
Australian Designer Kym Ellery, is also no stranger when it comes to igniting fury from her love of fur. Just last year, she faced serious backlash from her use of it in her in label, Ellery and on the runway in her shows. Her most recent collection for autumn/winter was no different, featuring bright yellow furs that went to the floor and cool cropped jackets flaunted by the models.
