Going Forward Gucci Will Stop Using Fur in All Collections

Gucci just announced on Wednesday that they are going fur-free.

The fashion house plans to eliminate fur from all future collections, starting with the spring/summer 2018 collection.

In addition to eliminating the use of fur, Gucci has also joined the Fur Free Alliance as part of a long-term partnership with The Humane Society and LAV.

And if you’re wondering what the brand plans to do with the remaining animal fur items, they will be announcing a charity auction for remaining goods. The proceeds will benefit the aforementioned charities.

Gucci is one of a few brands to ban fur in their clothing and accessories. Such brands include:

  • Calvin Klein
  • Ralph Lauren
  • Tommy Hilfiger
  • Armani

Going forward, you can expect products, like Gucci’s fur-lined loafers, to be replaced with faux-fur, wool, and various other new fabrics.

The decision to ban fur came from President and CEO Marco Bizzarri in collaboration with Creative Director Alessandro Michele.

In a statement Bizzarri says:

“Together, by committing to a culture of purpose, taking responsibility and encouraging respect, inclusivity, and empowerment, we want to create the necessary conditions for a progressive approach to sustainability.”

The announcement comes as part of Gucci’s new ten-year “Culture of Purpose” sustainability plan, which underlines Gucci’s dedication to creating a more socially responsible business.
