There is something luxurious and languorous about the word ‘mink’ which perhaps every woman loves and dreams about. Like the word ‘diamonds’, mink conjures a state of mind. We think warm, wistful thoughts, remembering Hollywood stars in their minks (who can forget Bette Davis and Celeste Holm in that quintessential New York film All About Eve?). And buying mink is still an event, not taken lightly.
In good mink, the hair will be dense; high density means that the fur will be long-lasting. And the design will be classic—it has to last through a future of changing fashions and still look fabulous. Which is why this new mink jacket is a dream mink jacket, if ever there was one.
It is thick yet light, and contemporary in style, simple and elegant. It is silky, smooth and soft, a mink to wear in the evening with a gown and gloves, the collar upturned to caress the neck in the richness of that beautiful fur, or to wear by day.
It shows exceptional craftsmanship; it is beautifully made and finished, and lined in black satin. It sells in the London shops at over £4,000. But our fur comes direct from the furriers, hence the advantageous Club price.
RRP £4,080. CCUK £1,379.
