Cedric's Luxe Collection 2008 Holiday Trends in Luxury Fur Accessories

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - November 24, 2008) - 'Tis the season to experience the magic of fur, and there's nothing like fur accessories to jazz up last year's little black dress. According to Norma Jean Kirchner, designer of Cedric's Luxe Collection, trends this winter are both casual and elegant, a playful balance that reflects today's busy woman. Cedric's Luxe Collection offers affordable style without sacrificing sophistication -- a must for today's discriminating customer who wants to look and feel their best.

"Stylish chic fashion and casual sophistication play a big part of the season's fur styles, which are so easy and wearable," says Kirchner, who has 40 years of success in the luxury fur and fur accessories business. "The twist of fur mixed with fabrics like cashmere and leather are ideal for women that need to transform from daytime sporty chic to nighttime glamour in a matter of minutes." (Watch Cedric Kirchner live on ShopNBC Friday, November 28th at 4pm and on the 29th at 1am and 6pm. Times are central).

Cedric's Luxe Collection Top 5 Holiday Fur Accessories Trends

1. Animal-print accessories: Instantly update a look with a high impact piece.

Take ordinary to extraordinary by wrapping yourself in a reversible, cashmere animal print shawl. Or slip on the fur accessory item of the season -- a pair of opera-length, leather and cashmere-blend gloves. To add a little kick, try complementing the opera gloves with a matching blackberry handbag.

2. Wraps and scarves: Add versatility to your individual style.

What sounds better than Super Glam? Designed in cashmere with fur inset from shoulder to shoulder, this must-have "Super Glam" Rex Rabbit Fur/Cashmere-Blend Shawl, which is lavishly fringed with 6" tails and features 34" full belt detail, makes a bold statement all its own. An added bonus, the optional ring closure used to cinch the plush shawl can double as a wrist band.

3. Surprise finishes: Give any outfit that extra pizzazz.

How about a fox headband that doubles as a collar and comes in luscious colors like purple, red, whiskey and white? Or instantly start a trend by adding a fringe collar to your jacket, coat, even your favorite sweater.

4. All in the layers: The modern fur vest takes layering to a new level.

The super chic hoodie (in woven mink) drips casual luxury. The elongated hoodie (in woven rex) looks divine with denim and is sure to be a favorite layering piece.

5. Going retro: Throw a stole over that gown and voila! Instant Old Hollywood glamour.

Liven up that evening gown with a cashmere stole with fox, or dare to slip into a versatile fashion cape trimmed in lush fox all around. You're certain to be the belle of the ball. These two items will debut on ShopNBC shows slated for Dec 3 and 4.

Whether it's a gift for someone special or an indulgence for yourself, stay ahead of the curve this season by tapping into these hot luxury fur accessories trends.
