Kanjeevaram and fur just don't go together


Moscow, November 13, 2007 (ANI)

Several women in the Prime Minister's delegation to Moscow for his 24-hour visit and not one woman in fur. Not even faux fur. And this in a city that revels in its fur fashion. Mrs Gursharan Kaur wore a black woolen overcoat most of the day while the Prime Minister preferred a gray woolen coat. His colleagues were all men, no fur there. And the media team which had a record ten women teamed their outfits with leather or woolen coats to beat the -7 degrees Celsius weather. Not one of them owned a mink coat. It’s kind of hard to combine mink with Kanjeevaram or Banarasi sarees, which is as dressy as a woman Journalist gets.

But ask Russian women what is her idea of a perfect gift and you are most likely to get a reply " a mink coat". No apologies here for anti fur lobbyists. Russians love their fur. It comes in all colours and cuts and length. Calvin Klien, Jean PaulGaultier, Roberto Cavalli or Oscar de la Renta, most international labels have experimented with fur this year. Basic colours like black, gray and white are popular but one can even spot yellow and orange in shop windows this year. Seems bizarre but hey its fashion. And it doesn't come cheap. From 200,000

rubles 500,000 rubles it can burn a deep hole in one's pocket. So far Indo western wear hasn't dabbled with fur, maybe a fox collar or a cuff but that's about it.
