France’s Kering said it had decided to stop using animal fur across all of its brands, in the fashion industry’s latest response to concerns over
animal treatment and the environment.
“The time has now come to take a further step forward by ending the use of fur in all our collections. The world has changed, along with our clients, and luxury naturally needs to adapt to that,” François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of Kering, said.
Starting with Gucci in 2017, all the group’s houses, notably Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen, Brioni and Saint Laurent, have progressively decided to take this step.
