Popski London, a Canada Goose alternative. Why is it fur is making such a huge comeback at the moment? I mean, what’s the appeal of wearing the flesh and hair of a murdered and tortured animal?
The clothing brand uses raccoon, mink and rabbit fur in their coats and accessories. Eating the flesh of a dead animal is already f*cked up but wearing their fur around your body, that should come under a sadistic mental disorder.
Popski London insist that both its real and fake furs are ethically sourced, but experts have questioned why stars would plug a brand that uses animal pelts in many of its products in the first place. It makes you wonder how people think that fur itself can be ethically sourced.
Let me ethically skin and murder and human and then wear their skin around my neck. That’s f*cking weird. The exact same goes for what we do to animals.
Mimi Bekhechi, Director of International Programmes at PETA told Femail: ‘So-called ‘celebrities’ who wear fur from this junky shop are invariably taking freebies, while elegant, glamorous stars choose Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, or other luxury British brands that are proudly fur-free.’
Last month, Vogue Williams was busily championing Popski products, including a bobble hat and rabbit lined coat while filming The Jump before pulling out due to knee injury.
Yet a year earlier, she criticised Kim Kardashian for putting North in a fur coat, saying: ‘I don’t really see the need to dress a child in fur.’
Popski London have made it easy to name and shame the celebrities who wear their clothing. The easiest way to change this is for celebrities supporters to speak up and voice their disgust and contempt at them for wearing and supporting such a brand. After all, it’s typically the fans that make a celebrity exactly that.
