Regarding the furs, it's tough to know where to begin. The Colovoses say outerwear is one of their top categories, and looking at a reversible fur/black leather jacket or a shrunken shearling vest shown over a shearling motorcycle jacket, it's easy to see why. The cut and fit belie the easy-on-the-wallet contemporary price point. This season's de rigueur leather puffer jacket comes in at about $1,500, a relative bargain when you consider that the Colovoses are the only ones to quilt their sleeves differently for a snugger, more flattering fit. Having launched a handbag collection last season, they added a few new styles. The most interesting was a geometric clutch made from leather and patinated steel. Tough-chic is an overused term, but it fits.
