Gucci goes fur-free
All remaining coats to be auctioned for charity
Gucci will go fur-free next year and auction off all its remaining animal fur items, the Italian fashion house’s president and chief executive Marco Bizzarri has announced. The changes will come into force with the brand’s spring-summer 2018 collection, Mr Bizzarri said during a talk at the London College of Fashion. As part of the change, a charity auction of the fashion house’s remaining animal fur items will be held, with the proceeds going to the animal rights organisations Humane Society International and LAV.
