Rabbit Season


What is it right now about fashion and pets? Cats, as we’ve seen time and again, are enjoying a moment, and according to Mandy Coon, who dropped by our office yesterday to preview her Spring ’11 collection, bunnies are, too. Coon is known for her diaphanous, draped creations, which she’s showing for Spring in cotton, tulle, and burlap, but just as much, apparently, for her Bunny bag. Her Fall ’10 collection had no sooner hit stores than the bunny—available in velvet ($405) and leather ($450)—had sold out. Reorders are already coming in and Colette, Assembly New York, Opening Ceremony, and Eva are all carrying the purse. Bunnies have already made an impact in London: BFA-winning accessory designer Katie Hillier uses one as her totem and creates rabbit silhouette necklaces in 18K gold and diamonds, and LOVE editrix Katie Grand’s affection for her rabbit, Clara, is well documented. Are cottontails poised to take America by storm? @BunnyBisous, we’re looking at you…
