Armani Goes Fur Free

Italian fashion king Giorgio Armani has confirmed that from Autumn/Winter ’16 he will no longer use fur in any of his fashion collections.

I am pleased to announce that the Armani Group has made a firm commitment to abolish the use of animal fur in its collections,” Armani said in a statement. “Technological progress made over the years allows us to have valid alternatives at our disposition that render the use of cruel practices unnecessary as regards animals. Pursuing the positive process undertaken long ago, my company is now taking a major step ahead, reflecting our attention to the critical issues of protecting and caring for the environment and animals.”

Most fur sold globally is farmed from animals such as minks, foxes, rabbits and chinchillas. They are killed in the most horrific ways ranging from gassing to neck breaking to make sure the fur is preserved in a good condition. More than 80 million mink and foxes were killed in 2014 just for fashion purposes…

Armani’s fur-free announcement makes it clear that designers and consumers can have creative freedom and luxury all without supporting animal cruelty,” said Joh Vinding, chairman of the Fur Free Alliance. “Mr. Armani has been a trendsetter in the fashion world for decades and this latest announcement is proof that compassion and innovation are the future of fashion.

The Humane Society International also added that Armani going fur free is “probably the most powerful message yet that killing animals for fur is never fashionable”.

Armani now joins Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren in switching to synthetic alternatives.

Spring Buys

As the weather gets slightly warmer, I’m already dreaming about putting away the winter woolies and pulling out my Spring clothes! Okay.. It may only be March, but as we all know English weather is terribly unpredictable. We may as well prepare ourselves for a possible 15 degrees!!

I’ve picked a few of my Spring buys to see myself into those warmer months this year, accessories are a huge must on my to buy list. I’ve chosen mine from Shop Spring – have a look at their website they have a huge range! 

I LOVE sunglasses, but I always seem to lose mine. These are definitely on my list, I adore them. I will not be loosing them! Click here for a closer look. I really like the cat eye look, I think it’s so chic.


I also love these tortoiseshell beauties from http://www.shopspring.com. Click here for a closer look.


Next on my list: caps! I’m desperately wanting to try! I love the corduroy texture of these – they come in so many colours! Have a gander here.

  

 

Lamoda are also doing suede caps, which I love! They’re great for pairing with a pair of mom jeans and your favourite pair of trainers for a sassy daytime look.

As some of you readers may know I love my watch, and I can’t go without wearing one! I’ve found this beautiful Daniel Wellington number. The tan strap makes it a great go-to for any outfit. Buy it, buy it, buy it!



I’ve been buying a lot from Lavish Alice as of late and I really love their simple and structured pieces.

I’m loving this crop, this would look amazing with a pair of tailored pants and strappy heels.


I also love this bodysuit, I’m a huge fan of bodysuits anyway (I own far too many) I love this sleeker look, and the off the shoulder element. And it’s a thong, which is a plus! No VPL!


And lastly (my shopping list could go on aaaalllll day) my last love is this gorgeous Zara embroidered bomber. Click here for a closer look at this beaut.


  

These are a few of my wants this Spring season, I hope I have inspired you for your next buys! What’s in your Spring wish list?
