A number of luxury fashion players have committed to bannning fur over recent years – including Gucci, Prada and Versace, with Chanel becoming the first brand to ban exotic skins as well. But Karl Lagerfeld is a designer that was renowned for his use of fur. So it comes as a welcome surprise that the Lagerfeld brand has recently become the latest to ban fur.

WWD reports that, before the close of 2019, the AM Retail Group – which owns Karl Lagerfeld Paris – had agreed to finally ban fur. This follows years of appeals and pressure by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and its affiliates. 

“PETA applauds these companies for their compassionate and business-savvy decisions, which show that fur is out and kindness is in," said PETA’s senior director Anne Brainard in a statement. "Ethical shoppers simply don’t want animals to be abused and killed for coats, collars and cuffs, and these fur bans are proof that the fashion industry is changing to meet the rising demand for luxury cruelty-free alternatives.”

We hope that this latest news will encourage other big-name brands to follow suit in 2020 and ban fur for good.
