U.K. label Shrimps proved that not all faux things are bad when it burst onto the fashion landscape in 2013 with a bold, statement-making collection of fake fur apparel and accessories. Launched by designer and London College of Fashion grad Hannah Weiland, the British brand’s quirky spin on high fashion quickly gained traction with the street style set, who helped ignite the buzz around Shrimps faux-fur coats, scarves, and clutches. As for the catchy name the label shares with a certain edible crustacean? It’s not inspired by a favorite cocktail snack, but a nickname Weiland earned as a child for being quite small and pink herself.
