All the luxury brands that have gone fur-free

Following the announcement that Michael Kors is going fur-free, we're looking at all the brands who have embraced the ban.

Michael Kors

Michael Kors is the latest luxury brand to go fur-free, making an announcement that the policy will go into effect in 2018. This will also include Jimmy Choo, which has been under Kors' company since July. His decision will be very well received, but he's not the first luxe designer to say goodbye to animal fur. Here are some other brands you may not know have already swapped fur for faux.

 

Gucci

Gucci’s fur ban, which commenced with the brand’s spring summer '18 collection shown in Milan last month, was welcome, but surprising coming from a brand whose fur-lined loafers were one of the most-coveted items of the season. 

 

Calvin Klein

As early as 1994 Calvin Klein made it a mission to eliminate all use of fur from their collections.

 

Stella McCartney

As a lifelong vegetarian, Stella McCartney vowed to never use fur or leather in any of her designs since the inception of her label in 2001.

Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger & Vivienne Westwood

In 2007, more and more designers began to reject fur, with Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Vivienne Westwood all dropping its use from their labels.

 

Hugo Boss & Armani

They've been followed most recently by Hugo Boss in 2015, and Armani in March 2016. 

 

Net-a-Porter

The luxury shopping site announced this year that it will no longer sell fur products on any of its e-commerce platforms.

 

Now with Gucci's announcement in 2017, it seems that the fashion industry is shifting away from its controversial relationship with fur, one major brand at a time.
