Freaky or Fabulous: Gorilla Arm Trend For Fall 2011

Freaky or Fabulous? The Gorilla Arm Trend For Fall 2011

Fur, both real and faux, returned for Fall, and one of the most interesting incarnations of the furry stuff was the debut of the gorilla arm. By that, we mean the seriously, thickly fur-covered sleeves of coats. Rag & Bone showed it in their futuristic Scottish ski bum, Giles did it under a black corset, and Peter Som took it to the trench. It's certainly a bold look, but one that could be hard to pull off. What do you think of this trend? Would you wear it?
