For those in the market for a new fur coat, this season, it’s time to ditch basic black, brown and leopard print and go for bright colors. Another option is to go for bold patterns and spots, including polka dots, which, like rainbow color, keep this luxe, but traditional item of outerwear feel fresh again. To (ahem) illustrate this point, we reached out to fur-loving diva Cruella De Vil. De Vil, who’s been enjoying several decades of freedom after wrapping Disney’s animated hit, “101 Dalmations,” graciously agreed to model three fabulous fur coats (all real of course).
