Say goodbye to those fur-lined Gucci loafers
Italian fashion house Gucci announced that they’ll be eliminating animal fur from their Spring Summer 2018 collection onwards. Gucci President and CEO Marco Bizzarri made that announcement at the 2017 Kering Talk at the London College of Fashion, where he unveiled details of the company’s new ten-year “Culture of Purpose” sustainability plan.
Under the new policy, the fashion house will no longer use mink, coyote, raccoon dog, fox or any other animal bred or caught for their fur. Remaining fur items will be sold in a charity auction.
“Our new ten-year “Culture of Purpose” sustainability plan has three principal focuses: the Environment, Humanity and New Models. The announcements that Gucci has joined the Fur Free Alliance and has become a founding partner of UNICEF’s Girls’ Empowerment Initiative, demonstrate our absolute commitment to making sustainability an intrinsic part of our business.” – Marco Bizzarri
Other fur-free brands and designers includes Armani,Calvin Klein,Vivienne Westwood and of course Stella McCartney, who is known for her ethical approach to fashion.
The all new fur-free policy marks a game-changer for the whole world of luxury fashion.
