Exiled to Siberia in 1910, Russian dissident Gregory Salomon learned the art of fur trading from local trappers. Salomon and his son spent more than 60 years purchasing skins for some of the biggest fashion houses in Europe before grandson Yves formed his own fur-based fashion label in 1972. Today, six distinct collections form the house of Yves Salomon. The Army line features traditional military parkas embellished with fur trim, offering a trendy daywear complement to the house’s elegant evening coats.
