Walking In A Winter Wonderland: Luxury Faux Fur Finds From Helen Moore

Walking in a winter wonderland: Luxury faux fur finds from Helen Moore

With the first signs of frost appearing on our windows and Michael Buble’s melodic voice crooning in the background we’re daydreaming of a romantic winter, complete with snowflakes on 5th Avenue and twirling under the moonlight.

Luxury faux fur finds from Helen Moore

Here at Your Coffee Break, we’re been lusting over 20’s style fur capes, stoles and scarves ever since the first glimpses of Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby last summer and now that the festive season is here we can finally indulge our inner Daisy Buchanan and wrap ourselves in glorious furs.

Luxury faux fur finds in London

Enter Helen Moore, a UK based manufacturer of beautiful faux fur pieces. There is something distinctly “film noir” about hiding from the elements swathed in furs and Moore’s collection of sumptuous faux fur accessories allow you to partake, with some of the most sumptuous faux fur’s we’ve ever laid our hands on whilst championing a British brand. Done wrong faux fur can be a disaster but each of Moore’s pieces are lovingly cut by hand and created by highly skilled machinist, resulting in pieces with a quality so high you would never guess they are faux, rather family heirlooms handed down with notions of romance and style.

Where to find amazing faux fur in London

Our favourite pieces include the Ermine collar, a beautiful and luxurious piece that evokes a vintage Hepburn feel and the Aubergine pillbox hat, perfect for channeling our inner Anna Karenina and adding a touch of glamour to your winter coat. If you’re style is more Alexa Chung than Dita Von Teese you can still incorporate a touch of fur into your look whilst retaining your east London edge. Why not soften your trusty biker jacket with a jet-black stole. Not only will it instantly transform a trusty classic but it’s also a fabulously simple way to transform your outerwear from day to night.

And for those days when you’re feeling truly opulent, we adore the Ermine short cape for all out Gatsby-esque glamour. Thrown over a full skirt or a beaded slip dress, you’re guaranteed to look every inch the starlet and turn heads. Who knows, you just might attract the attention of your very own Jay Gatsby.
