A strapless silk cocktail dress had some fox trim across the top. A long silky flowing skirt had fur trim around the bottom. Many garments had fur collars.

This being winter, a fact New Yorkers can't forget this week, there were some yummy coats. One of the nicest came in angora, with a fox collar. It was paired with a sandstone wool jacket and matching pant.

A distinctive item, though perhaps not for everyone, was a set of fox fur sleeves — just the sleeves — worn over a wool and silk blouse and silk skirt.

And this being Herrera, there were gowns aplenty. They came in blue silk charmeuse or ruby silk crepe, in velvet or in sequins. An emerald-colored silk charmeuse gown closed the show — with, appropriately, a plunging emerald fox fur collar.
