Donatella Versace is the next designer to say no to fur in her future collections, but we are yet to receive the official statement from the brand.
The luxury fashion label has a long history of using fur but in an interview with The Economist’s 1843 magazine on Wednesday, Donatella said that she will no longer include it in any of her designs for Versace, adding:
“Fur? I am out of that. I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesn’t feel right.”
She follows in the footsteps of Furla, Gucci, Michael Kors and Jimmy Choo who have all pledged to go fur-free. In the last few years we also saw Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Net-A-Porter stop sale of fur goods.
From recent runway shows, faux has never looked better. Brands like Givenchy and Stella McCartney showcased the fluffiest cruelty-free coats while labels like Shrimp continue to attract fans looking for fur-free yet stylish outerwear.
