My Mink Autumn Winter Collection

When thinking about fur coat, our thoughts always go to a grown woman wearing something furry with a classic cut, perfect for a night at the Opera. Maria Wijngaarde changed this preconception creating a line of fur coats and accessories for the modern girl and woman called My Mink. All the pelts are origin assured and sustainably sourced. The presentation has been held at beautiful Russian restaurant Mari Vanna at Wellington Court, 116 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7PJ, an homage to Maria's home country. www.marivanna.co.uk
Maria Wijngaarde is wearing a purple Soho Raccoon bolero glamming up to the nines a LBD. The inclement London weather will be a thing from the past when wearing something like this to a party. The bolero comes in red as well who knows maybe every collection will a different colour setting a colour code timeline for the future.
Brand ambassador Ganna Nyeizvyestnykh is wearing a gorgeous mink and silver fox collar vest. As you can see the mink has been stripped from the image of "old lady's outwear" and it has got this 21st century look.
This Canadian sable jacket is a beauty and the model is wearing it with grace matching it with a fishtail dress, this look is vintage yet modern for a gala night, but I can see it really cool with a top, designer's jeans and high heels shoes for a look more relaxed.
These are some of the great accessorises from the My Mink collection. Snoods, ear muffs, collars, hats, all stunning and soft, ready to keep your head and neck warm. I particularly love the headband.

This Swakara and Mink jacket is quite sporty and perfect to wear everyday. Don't wear a fur coat only on special occasions, this model and most of My Mink creations are for an everyday wear, what it should be when inside your wardrobe is hanging something beautiful like this. Outwear made to be enjoyed in full. www.my-mink.com
This leopard print mink jacket is so great. My Mink will be showcasing its collection at the first ever Luxury Fashion Event at Baku London 164-165 Sloane Street SW1X 9QB from the 15th of February to the 18th of February. For an invitation contact the designer at the website www.my-mink.com and it will be possible to admire these gorgeous coats from 10 to 6 on the dates above, during London Fashion Week. www.bakulondon.com
During the presentation guests have been treated to delicious Russian nibbles from Mari Vanna Restaurant and cocktails courtesy of Snow Queen Vodka, a suitable brand matching the designer's homeland and the venue. www.snowqueenvodka.com
