ESSAY: IS FASHION OVER FUR?

Categories:Other Brands

Fur was long a sign of luxury and status. But as we move into the 21st century, it has become more of a faux pas to wear. With luxury fashion houses such as Gucci recently announcing the decision to go fur free, using animal skin is quickly  becoming antiquated. Other fashion brands such as Armani, Hugo Boss and Ralph Lauren have also gone fur free in recent years.

Gucci’s announcement made in October 2017 caused major headlines around the globe. “Gucci going fur free is a huge game changer. For this powerhouse to end the use of fur because of the cruelty involved will have a huge ripple effect throughout the world of fashion. A staggering 100 million animals a year still suffer for the fur industry, but that can only be sustained for as long as designers continue to use fur and consumers purchase it,” says Kitty Block, president of Humane Society International.

WHY FUR IS NO LONGER CHIC

Fur is losing popularity amongst luxury brands and there are multiple factors to explain why. Animal rights activists groups such as PETA and Respect for Animals have pushed for brands to stop using fur for years now. “Technology is now available that means you don’t need to use fur,” Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri told Vogue. “The alternatives are luxurious. There is just no need.”

Let’s look into the specifics of Gucci’s recent announcement. The brand will be fur free by the spring 2018 season. For the past ten years, the company has invested into synthetic leathers as well as more sustainable resources. Likewise, Gucci will auction off its remaining animal fur items with proceeds going to animal rights organizations.

Another reason for more fashion brands moving away from fur can be linked to consumers themselves. If you go to a Facebook or Twitter page for brand which uses fur or tests cosmetic products on animals, you will often see consumers writing comments expressing their disappointment. Additionally, a focus on the environment is more important for the millennial consumer. And the group is said to count for more than half of Gucci’s customers.

WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT FUR?

Although many fashion houses still produce leather goods, there are several reasons why fur is seen as a particularly cruel practice.

The Zippy Wallet is one of the house’s famous wallets and for the upcoming Valentine; it’s getting a facelift. The basic styles remain the same, like the Monogram Canvas.

HERMES CINHETIC BOX BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Hermes-Cinhetic-Box-Bag

It was first-presented at the Spring Summer 2017 runway as the promising handbag. The name? Hermes Cinhetic Bag. This line consists more than only the shoulder bag because we’ve already revealed the Cinhetic Clutch and the Cinhetic Clutch With Strap. And we belief there will be more in the future, so expect the wallets and other mini accessories to follow.

The Design

Hermes-Cinhetic-Box-Bag-9

The Cinhetic Box Bag is like a beautiful cosmetic box. It’s squared and boxy as it comes with a nice curved handle. You can also use the jewel-like chain for cross body or shoulder carry. The architectural style feels minimalistic and urban-like, but also very elegant.

But what makes the Cinhetic collection special is the new center H clasp. Obviously the clasp represents the house, but the right part of the logo is shorter than the left part, which is quite interesting. Also, the logo clasp is crafted in mixed silver and gold hardware, creating an eye-catching object.

This handbag is available in different colors as well as in exotic leathers. So what do you think? Gorgeous or not?

The Interior

In order to get into the inside, you will need to turn the H logo clasp. The interior is quite spacious as the interior is comparable to a medium-sized shoulder bag.

The Prices And Sizes

Currently we do know the exact measurement and the prices. More info will follow soon.
