Karl Lagerfeld brand bans use of exotic skins

Karl Lagerfeld has banned its use of exotic animal skins, as the
brand is hoping that this move may reduce the spread of COVID-19.

According to a statement from PETA, “wildlife experts warn that the
trade in skins of snakes, crocodiles, and others could fuel the spread
of diseases like COVID-19.”

This decision follows Karl Lagerfeld’s announcement from last year,
banning its use of fur. The brand follows several other luxury labels,
including Diane von Furstenberg, Victoria Beckham, Vivienne Westwood,
in its decision to cut out exotic skins.

“Kudos to Karl Lagerfeld for making the compassionate,
business-savvy decision to shun skins stolen from wild animals, a move
that may just save some human lives, too,” says PETA’s executive vice
president Tracy Reiman commented. “PETA-approved vegan clothing and
accessories are the way to go for anyone who wants to help prevent the
killing of animals and the rise of the next pandemic.”
