Somewhere My Love

This Winter has been a cold one for most parts of the world, and regardless of the freezing temperatures one must look stylish at every moment. Based on the novel by Boris Pasternak, "Doctor Zhivago" from 1965 is a film which depicts the story of Lara (Julie Christie) and Doctor Zhivago (Omar Sharif) during the years of the Russian Revolution.

To confront the freezing Russian Winter, Lara and Doctor Zhivago wore fur coats, fur hats,
wool trench coats, and what appears to be black turtleneck wool sweaters. What grabs my attention from the photo below is Omar Sharif's leather belted trench coat, and the fact that several years ago people were surprised to see this look on the runways, well this look originally comes from circa 1915-1917, just another proof that past fashions can become present and future fashions.

Stay warm and stylish this winter (if possible buy synthetic furs!).

I like a lot your ecological point of view!!
Maybe its too much to dress like that with the belt over the coat...its very stylish though...!!!

Glad you agree, well I also think that if you have any vintage fur from the 50s-90s well then use it, but there's no need to buy new pieces...some fur replicas are outstanding, and it applies to all kinds of furs and leathers.

I adore old, true and good furs: I have two, one black lamb and brown rabbit (in a cashmere coat), two russian hats, fox scarf. I also use, sometimes, to put belt or leather stripes over long coats!
