Rewind: SWEAR Jetty

January 11, 2013 at 5:56 am

I suspect that SWEAR Jettys may be the originators of the whole “fluffy” trend (ie faux fur leggings/boots/bootcovers).  While Elsa Schiaparelli predated them by about 60 years with her monkey fur boots.  But I doubt those ever made it to a rave.  I’d like to know when the Jettys were first produced and if anything similar was made before.

[Ed.] Alexander Wang has a contemporary version.
