Saks Fifth Avenue pledges to go fur-free by 2022’s fiscal end

In a statement released this morning, Saks Fifth Avenue has pledged to stop selling products made with animal fur by the end of fiscal year 2022. “We recognize that trends constantly evolve, and that the sale of fur remains a significant social issue. As such, eliminating it from our assortment is the right step for us to take at this time,” said Tracy Margolies, Saks’ chief merchandising officer. The luxury retailer will officially eliminate products made from wild animal fur or animals specifically raised for fur usage, though it will continue selling products made with shearling, goatskin, cattle hide, down, feathers, leather, and faux fur. All of Saks’ fur salons will also close by the fiscal end of 2021. The pledge also follows campaigning by PETA to shut down Saks’ fur salons. “May its ‘fur salons’ rest in pieces, for they won’t be missed by today’s shoppers, who no longer find it acceptable to drape themselves in an abused animal’s stolen skin,” PETA said in a statement.

Petra Collins tells “Fairy Tales” with new photography book

Once upon a time, there was a subversive fashion photographer who released her book this week…oh, wait! That’s not an actual fairy tale—but Petra Collins’ visual tome certainly fits the bill. Created in collaboration with Euphoria star and muse Alexa Demie, Collins has just dropped “Fairy Tales,” her latest book in the form of nine erotic short stories based on works by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and more. Both women collaborated on the text and the visuals, which star Demie as various elves, mermaids, fairies, and other make-believe creatures in surrealist sets that blend reality and fantasy. “Fairy Tales” is currently available for $45 on Rizzoli’s website.
