Alexander McQueen And Balenciaga Are The Latest Brands To Say Goodbye To Fur

More luxury brands moving towards more sustainable options.

Two more labels are joining the wave in luxury fashion to phase out real fur and head towards more sustainable, cruelty-free alternatives – this time its Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga

Both owned by the Kering Group, the brands have announced the decision in a recent company report which doesn’t come as too much of a surprise as other famous labels within the group such as Gucci, have also been seen to do the same.

2020 was certainly a tough year for the fashion industry, with targets already set high the previous year to decrease the industry’s global carbon footprint, many labels have struggled to produce garments under the current circumstances. With virtual fashion weeks and collections becoming the new normal, perhaps this has also led to more brands taking the time to reflect on their own environmental values. 

Currently, Saint Laurent and Brioni are the only labels left in the Kering Group to not announce their plans of phasing out the animal material, but more big brands doing so can only be a step in the right direction. Stella McCartney, although having always been a leader in implementing sustainable measures into the luxury fashion industry, has recently released a mushroom alternative to leather. 

Finger crossed that more big brands begin to take this step.
