Versace may follow in the footsteps of fellow luxury houses Gucci and Jimmy Choo by banning the use of fur.

In an interview with Luke Leitch for The Economist's 1843 magazine, Donatella Versace said she rejects the use of fur as a fashion statement.

“Fur? I am out of that,” said Versace. “I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesn’t feel right.”

The fashion house’s entire brand has been built on luxury and excess – fur playing a large role in that – so if any official changes were to follow, they would mark a shift in Versace’s identity.

At the time of writing, Versace still offers fur-embellished products on its site, so be sure to check back for any updates on the topic.
