The fashion world hosts two extremes – from Stella McCartney’s strong stance against working with animal skins (although she does use wool and silk) to Karl Lagerfeld’s undying loyalty to the fur industry – the use of animals in fashion truly splits the crowd.
In a ground-breaking cover and lead feature, Vogue Paris has dedicated August 2017 to the future of faux fur. The summer feature covers alternatives to furry favourites, including kangaroo, fox and rabbit, and promotes an anti-fur stance that might leave the Chanel director fuming.

This incredible move comes from a magazine who has supported the fur industry for decades, and shows that the future could well be fur-free. Let’s hope that leather, suede and silk are next!
