Victoria Beckham has pledged to stop using exotic skins in its designs as of autumn 19.
The luxury womenswear brand said in a statement: “Victoria Beckham will cease the use of exotic skins in all collections as of autumn 19. The Victoria Beckham brand has never used fur in its clothing or accessories collections and confirmed last year that the brand will remain fur free.”
Victoria Beckham is the latest label to ban exotic skins. It joins other luxury brands, including Vivienne Westwood, Diane von Furstenberg, and Chanel.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) director Elisa Allen commented: “Behind every crocodile, alligator, snake, or lizard handbag or pair of shoes is a violent death. Victoria Beckham’s decision to ban exotic skins will spare countless remarkable animals immense suffering, and PETA calls on other luxury brands to follow her kind example.”
