Geraldina Bassani Antivari is obsessed with fur. And the color pink. Fortunately, as the creative director of Mr. & Mrs. Italy, an Italian fashion label that has earned a cult following for it’s colorful, fur-lined parkas, she frequently gets to work with both. “I love the way that the Mr & Mrs Italy parkas evolved from being something very classic, to something very unusual,” she says. “Pops of brightly-colored fur in the hood and lining elevate a traditional army parka, and allows you to feel cool and stylish, while also keeping warm.”
