Fendi to show Haute Fourrure (Fur) during Haute Couture Paris

The 2015 FENDI Haute Fourrure collection will mark Karl Lagerfeld’s 50th anniversary as the designer for the Roman label, the longest-ever partnership between a designer and a luxury maison, as well as the first time in the history of the Fédération Française de la Couture that a single designer has staged both an haute couture and an haute fourrure show in a single season.

”For me, as long as people eat meat and wear leather, I don’t get the message. It’s very easy to say no fur, no fur, no fur, but it’s an industry. Who will pay for all the unemployment of the people if you suppress the industry of the fur? The hunters in the north for the sable, they have no other job, there is nothing else to do. Those organizations who are much against it, they are not Bill Gates.” Karl Lagerfeld told The New York Times.
