Respect for Animals are partnering with Vivienne Westwood to create ?Skin to Skin: Ethical Fur Collection?, using the fur of animals from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. Controversy starts from the first announcement. By offering a practical substitute to farmed fur, we draw an uncomfortable parallel between domestic and wild animals, revealing the inconsistencies in the ways consumers and brands justify fur.The collection, when revealed to use digital prints of fur rather than pelts, is the final statement: there?s no such thing as ethical fur, whatever the animal.
