“Fur? I am out of that. I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion,” declared Donatella Versace in a press statement late last week. Her namesake luxury Italian behemoth — known for its signature opulence which often involves animal skin motifs — vows to phase out of fur starting from 2019 collections and onwards.
Right behind the anti-fur pledge of Gucci, Tom Ford, Michael Kors and Givenchy, Versace’s ethical step forward is another proof that the industry is realising, and acting upon, the critical need for sustainable practice. And it’s reason enough for a celebration. Siduations, one of our favourite meme-makers, regrammed the news with a very-apt meme involving Naomi Campbell and a furry friend.
Instagram also saw a steady stream of supermodels lounging in their off-duty post-fashion month attires. If you ever wondered what Bella or Kendall would wear in their downtime, you’re in luck.
From Yara Shahidi and Luka Sabbat’s spin on Gen Z yellow to DJ Khaled’s take on modern-day patrician, scroll down and behold, all the best fashion ’Grams of the week.
Meanwhile, DJ Khaled taught us plebeians what it meant to commit to an all-white OOTD.
