York Furrier, a purveyor of exceptional furs and fine outerwear since 1931, is thrilled to present its 82nd Anniversary Collection at this year's Fall Trend Fashion Event. For this season's York Collection, the store's owners - John Rezny, John Wagner and Kathy Rezny - have traveled the globe, scouted the runways and worked with the York Furrier craftsmen (and women) to create an extensive selection of fashionable furs, shearlings, cashmeres, leathers and skiwear garments, along with an array of functional accessories (hats, gloves, scarves, handbags, belts and boots) for complete head-to-toe coverage.
Serving clients from the Chicagoland area and throughout the Midwest, York Furrier is conveniently located in the Deer Park Town Center and the Elmhurst City Centre. Both stores showcase innovative designer creations by Michael Kors, Zandra Rhodes, Badgley Mischka, Zac Posen, Malan Breton, André and Lisa Bisang, Dominic Bellissimo and Zuki as well as the classically inspired York Signature Styles. For clients who prefer one-of-a-kind garments, they may opt to work with York Furrier's talented on-premise staff to create a custom-made York Exceptional Exclusive.
In-store and on the runway this fall, the York Collection will feature gorgeous colors, bold patterns and shapely silhouettes. For color, the must-have is the Bisang-designed velour sheared mink walking coat with matching chinchilla trim in a beautiful teal. Other rich colors this season include plum, merlot, tangerine, emerald, saffron and vivid red. For playful patterns, Michael Kors created his version of camouflage with a cobalt blue, white, black and slate camo mink wrap. Badgley Mischka utilized animal prints and herringbone patterns for its newest handbag collection. Zuki created intarsia color-block patterns in sheared beaver walking coats. Figure-flattering styles range from adorable boleros to floor-grazing evening coats with a myriad of in-between lengths. For the North Shore woman on the go, York Furrier recommends the knee-length walking coat for versatile wear. With petite to full-figure sizes and a selection of extra-long lengths, the York Collection features garments that perfectly fit both lifestyle and budget.
As a full-service furrier, York Furrier also provides clients with an array of professional, on-premise services to maintain the beauty and condition of fur and fine outerwear garments. All store labels are welcome. Using state-of-the-art equipment, York Furrier provides on-premise, temperature-controlled storage, cleaning and conditioning, essential repairs and complete restyling of vintage garments. For an older, outdated garment or one that is simply no longer being worn, York Furrier offers a generous trade-in allowance towards new fur purchases.
The York Furrier staff looks forward to assisting you with all your fur and fine outerwear needs.
