Chanel announced that he stops using exotic skins in his accessories.

He removed from its online sales points all the products created with “exotic skins”.


Chanel, the historic fashion house founded in Paris, removed from its online sales outlets all products created with “exotic skins”, such as reptiles, lizard, crocodile or stripes, in line with the group's desire to exclude them from their next creations. According to its president, Bruno Pavlovsky, obtaining such skins became a practice increasingly difficult to reconcile with the ethical policies of the company, so they decided to focus on research and development of similar fabrics generated by 'the industry agri-food”. Pavlovsky said Monday in an interview on the specialized portal Women's Wear Daily (WWD) that the brand will not use exotic fur again, although the use of these resources in the house was already minimal, reported the agency Efe. “There was a problem of provisions, but this was not Chanel's business anyway,” said in the same medium the firm's designer, the German Karl Lagerfeld, who said he “does not remember” having used animal fur in his collections. The house today removed such products from its website, although according to Pavlovsky it will take “a while” to remove the remaining creations from the distribution points. People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Humane Society International (HSI) and other NGOs dealing with the defrense of animal rights applauded the group's decision, with which it becomes the first high-luxury brand to stop using fur. “Textile advances have made fake or vegan leather virtually indistinguishable from animals, they are much more sustainable and easier to customize, so there is no reason to kill animals in fashion,” PETA said in a statement. The organization encouraged other companies in the sector, such as Louis Vuitton, to follow the example of the French giant. The use of animal skins always generated controversy in the fashion sector and one of the great pioneers against its use was British designer Stella Oh, McCartney. In recent years, PETA's led protests and campaigns against the use of skins and leathers have increased and reports moved from streets and business doors to walkways and red carpets. The last big houses to say “no” to animal skin and join in 2018 to this philosophy were Versace, Gucci, Burberry and recently the French designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Source: Telam
