NEW YORK December 9, 2018

This year, we have seen numerous brands and designers embrace cruelty-free policies. Designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Jean Paul Gaultier (to name just a few) have vowed to go fur-free. Now, luxury brand Chanel has banned the use of fur and exotic skins, including crocodile, lizard, snake and stingray, from its collections.

Creative director of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, told WWD, “There is a problem of supply and that was not Chanel’s business anyway. We did it because it’s in the air, but it’s not an air people imposed to us. It’s a free choice.”
