Not Your Grandma's Fur: Utzon

Not Your Grandma's Fur: Utzon

No offense to Grandma, don’t get me wrong. My grandma’s were two of the most amazing women in my life, but I didn’t want to wear their furs...

They were bulky, with bell sleeves and wide, past the knee hemlines. Today, the need-to-know brand for modern & chic fur and leather is Utzon. Based in Denmark and rapidly expanding internationally, Utzon delivers a level of sophistication that one rarely finds in the typical department store fur department (yes, they still exist!).

Founded in 1990 by Pernille Utzon, who comes from a long-line of family furriers, Utzon is known for using the finest selection of furs, with each piece being handmade by skilled furriers. They were one of the first brands to make leather leggings a wardrobe staple and shaved mink bolero’s a thing. Some pieces are even reversible, shearling on one side and fur on the other, making you feel like you just got TWO amazing coats for the price of one. My favorite pieces from the collection are in the rich deep, monochromatic colors but, for those of you with an inner wild child, the mixed color furs are pure rock n’roll!
