Faux fur seems to be popping up all over the place at the moment; it comes without many of the ethical issues of real fur and, coming in a variety of colours, can often be more versatile than the real thing. Helen Moore is one brand that saw the potential of faux fur over 30 years ago and has been creating luxurious faux products ever since. This family run British company takes real care of its faux fur products and carefully manufactures all its designs right here in the UK. Helen Moore’s women’s accessories range from the traditionally stylish to the fashionably unique which makes this a faux fur brand for everyone. Want to incorporate a bit of on-trend fur into your winter wardrobe without going over the top? Helen Moore’s chic accessories could be just what you are looking for.

This winter Helen Moore’s stylish faux fur accessories include collars, muffs, scarves and even hats all of which presents the faux fur enthusiast with an array of furry styling options. The pieces come in a variety of colours and finishes meaning that whatever your style this winter Helen Moore have a piece for you. Traditionalists may want to opt for one of the brand’s more realistic looking faux styles whilst those after something a little more hip may find themselves drawn to modern, almost garish colours. This is a collection in which classic imitation ermine or wolf scarves and hats sit next to bright magenta clutches and powder blue collars. Whatever Helen Moore piece you select you are still presented with many a styling opportunity; the brand’s creations could be used to channel a fairytale-like look or give your outerwear a dose of rock ‘n’ roll glamour. With a Helen Moore piece you could play a Russian princess, a Hollywood star or decadent socialite, the choice is yours.

Faux fur is often seen as a rather low rent sartorial choice with such pieces often being viewed as of lesser quality than the ‘real thing’. Yet Helen Moore, with their attention to detail and commitment to British manufacturing, actually create faux pieces that are luxurious and desirable in their own right. When buying a faux fur piece from Helen Moore you are not settling for second best but purchasing a stylish and unique fashion accessory.
