The Italian catwalks for A/W 2013 have been awash with real fur. Fendi, which started out in 1925 as a Fur & Leather brand, used it to what I think is a disgusting excess. You could find the stuff on pretty much everything in the collection: Fur adorned shoes, belts, sunglasses and even the models’ hair–a small mop of Fur was placed on top to resemble a Mo Hawk! Hideous!

The use of exotic even endangered animal skins is also being adopted by Nike, who made Jay-Z customised Brooklyn Zoo Air Jordan’s by PMK. They are made out of 10 different animal skins- – stingray, anaconda, ostrich, crocodile and calf – but adds to that morbid roll call with alligator, boa, python, and lizard. And, of course, most shocking of all, elephant skin. The sneakers, which use the heavily grained hide in the side panels, are a customised version of the Nike Air Jordan and cost $2,500 (around £1,664) a pair.

I find these actions disgusting! I’m wondering what the hell people are thinking?! There is NO need to wear real when you can wear even better fakes at a much more affordable price point. For people who don’t see any wrong with the killing of these poor defenceless animal then I think you should check out the PETA website, http://buff.ly/YdliWE
