Jennifer Kate is one of the latest additions to the Australian fashion scene and its debut collection couldn’t have better timing. The runways of New York, London and Milan went fur crazy at the autumn/winter shows and no piece is more covetable than the fur vest.
Jen, the founder and creative director of Jennifer Kate, describes her vests as ‘an instant, ready-to-wear piece of glamour’, which is exactly what the catwalks of Gucci, Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg and Vera Wang have us lusting after.
Each piece is hand made so every one is unique and the quality is nothing short of what you would expect from a high-end label ensuring its status as an investment piece, but what’s most refreshing about the label is that there’s a real focus on versatility and functionality, something often lost in fur. The vests come in a variety of styles and sizes and there is a colour for everyone – midnight, charcoal, chocolate and snow to name a few. Better yet, they are designed to be figure hugging – not boxy like so many other fur coats – so you can cosy up without being swallowed up!
Jennifer Kate’s first collection is hitting stores now across Australia.
