Faux fur fun

The third and last part of the 'C'est la fête and grey sweater' playtime comes with a fanfare... introducing a new member of the MaiTai collection family: happy to announce that the scarf fur collars are now also available in faux fur. They are smooth and silky to the touch, and come in two sizes and three different colors. Below Ms Gris on her first outing.

Capsule pieces: grey flannel trousers and sweater
Shoes: black ankle boots
Accessories: Hermès 'C'est la fête' 70 carré (CW12), black croc CDC and black Birkin.
MaiTai Collection faux fur collar in gris, size S
Scarf tying method: fold your scarf in the basic bias, and pull through all the first two loops of the scarf fur collar (two-loop method). Secure ends in an Ascot knot

  1. I am doing my super happy dance right now. Absolutely love it, and -- no pressure at all ;) already waiting for more colours.
    As someone who does not wear fur, I normally stay clear of the faux fur products, which tend to look cheap and lumpy, but these are gorgeous, soft and of high quality, just beautiful. For me, a truly fantastic addition to your MT collection.
    Beautiful combination of the B, CDC, CLF the gray sweater, and Ms. FF...

  2. Thank you for offering these collars in faux fur! Now I can order one. It always makes me happy when retailers catch on that not everyone wants to wear real fur! Thank you!

  3. I have to echo JSMH's comments - I too have been waiting with bated breath for you to do these gorgeous collars in faux fur! Now, the only dilemma is which colour to order first! Expect an order within the hour!!

  6. Oooh, I'm so excited about these too!! They look wonderful! Will you be getting other colours in by any chance?

    And if you fancied a suggestion for future products: I have always wanted a glamourous fur muff to keep my hands warm...perhaps lined with silk? Perhaps with old H scarves that are too torn to wear...? ;)

    I always love seeing the new additions to your collection and am wondering if I can justify some Christmas presents for myself! :)

    Enjoy the rest of your week!

  8. Congratulations on yet another wonderful addition to your ever-growing and much appreciated collection.

    I don't know how you do it, but you manage to meet everyone's needs and preferences just perfectly.

    I'm an animal lover but, yes, a fur wearer, too, and of course, I'll continue to add to my collection of MT fur collars, but I certainly respect everyone's feeling regarding real vs. faux and commend you for being sensitive to this issue and providing your ultra-chic collar in both varieties. Now, everyone can be fur or faux fabulous.

    1. Dearest J, could I copy some of your lines for the intro of my fur page...please? Your fine writing always makes my day :-) xx

    2. 2nding you and your wonderful compliment and totally agreeing with our dearest "master of chicness" regarding your fine writing! ;-) So good to see a familiar face and speaking of fine wring in combination with fur collars: I'll never ever forget your summary of the first fur collar pyjama party, which ended by declaring the HFT and me "winners". ;-) Don't want to praise ourselves, but his hotness riding the ironing board and me accompanying him in that black little number certainly was "entertaining", if I may say so. Sorry for the sidetrack and after enjoying this moment of remembrance I'm excited to see, what the future has in petto - especially since cher MT always manages to surprise us by continuously topping herself (no clue how she does it)! :D Sending hugs - xox, Macs

    3. MT, anything of mine is yours, you know that, cher. There's never a need to ask - take, borrow or steal whatever you want anytime.

      I'm giggling, Macs, remembering those crazy fur collar parties on tpf - back in the days when tpf was actually fun! And yes, I do remember declaring you and
      his hotness the official winners. And, if memory serves, didn't the mods have to step in and delete a picture of HFT for being a bit TOO HOT?

      MT, we're sorry. Macs and I will behave ourselves in the future.

    4. there's no such thing as "too hot", when it comes to the HFT and me ;-), as we have class and - despite the (ab)use of champange - just know, where to draw the line. But I quite well remember some of the other rather steamy pics (life guards and such)! :D And yes, we'll "behave" from now on. ;-) But Jerrine, you might actually like this one: gotta run, hugs, me

    1. Chère Myriam, je suis ravi que vous êtes content avec le col noir! Merci aussi pour la chaleureuse bienvenue pour les nouveaux arrivants. Le vrai fourrure supporte un peu de pluie lègere quand même... laisser le secher loin d'un radiateur. Bon dimanche à vous. Amitiés..

  10. I have spent hours today evening reading the previous posts, to refresh my memories from the very beginning of your blog...
    I will repeat myself saying how gorgeous your collection is, how wonderful your taste for scarves is and how much you get out of them all, also will thank you for the encyclopedia of style you have been revealing to us during the years - however, I would like to emphasize I am really fascinated by your effort you are putting into your blog. Your collection also deserves tremendous work, a lot of attention and care and you are my encouragement confirming that work and love produce results. Would you be willing to comment once about how you create the items, what is your inspiration, and so on - I have always been interested in how creative processes are developed. Love, Lea

    1. Dear Lea, Thank you so much for the lovely compliments on the blog and collection <3

      So happy you enjoyed browsing previous posts.. I sometimes go back too, the entries are so much like a photo diary of my life in recent years :-)

      Re your question, I often refer to the items as members of the family, which is what they are to me. A huge amount of passion, work and care goes into each new addition. Many of the ideas come from listening, to myself and others (quite a few lovely ladies inquiried if the fur collars will be available in faux fur one day!). A lot of thought goes into creating the ideal shape, size, functionality and design, a process I enjoy just as much as finding beautiful materials, and working together with skilled craftsmen to bring the designs to life. It takes time and patience before the first perfect prototypes come out of the process, and when they do, it feels like a new member to the family is born. So yes, work and love it is <3

      Hope you will continue to enjoy the posts and updates, and wishing you a very happy festive season and New Year to come xx
