Gucci bans fur in all collections

Luxury fashion house Gucci will no longer use fur from its spring 18 collection onward.

Gucci’s fur-free policy includes mink, coyote, raccoon dog, fox, rabbit, and karakul (otherwise known as swakara, Persian lamb or astrakhan) and all other species specially bred or caught for fur.

Gucci’s president and CEO Marco Bizzarri announced the fur-free policy on 11 October during the 2017 Kering Talk at The London College of Fashion.

The company joins many other brands and retailers in going fur-free—including Armani, Hugo Boss, Yoox Net-a-Porter and Stella McCartney.

Bizzarri said: “Being socially responsible is one of Gucci’s core values, and we will continue to strive to do better for the environment and animals. [We] hope it will help inspire innovation and raise awareness, changing the luxury fashion industry for the better.”
