Rayon and polyester better step aside. There's a new synthetic fabric in town, and it's softer, lighter, and more flexible than any of its predecessors. Designers Yvonne Laurysen and Erik Mantel collaborated to create furore, a porous material reminiscent of expanded metal. It comes long and bushy or short and smooth, and can be dyed a variety of different colors. What does this mean for the future of fashion? For one thing, it means you can now dress like a furry alien mermaid without having to hunt down, kill, and skin a furry alien mermaid.
It also means you can probably get a faux fur coat made to look like Sulley from Monsters, Inc. Images by Lama Concept
