Gucci has announced plans to go fur-free in 2018. After many years of discussion with America’s Humane Society, the Italian luxury fashion house will no longer sell fur products, including the wildly popular Princetown fur-lined mules.

Offset Gucci

The Gucci Princetown mules are highly favored by rappers including Offset Migos, above, Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, and more.

Gucci CEO, Marco Bizzarri, announced this week that, starting with their spring/summer 2018 collection, the trendy fashion brand will be fur-free.

“Technology is now available that means you don’t need to use fur,” Bizzarri told Vogue magazine. “The alternatives are luxurious. There is just no need.”

Gucci plans to remove their fur products from boutiques and sell merchandise at auction to benefit LAV and the Humane Society, according to the NY Post.

Humane Society CEO Wayne Pacelle said they have been in talks with Gucci about “social and ecological issues” since 2009.

“Gucci kept up the dialogue with us for eight years, and today, patience paid off,” Pacelle wrote in a blog post.

Gucci’s fur-free policy will include every species of furry animals such as mink, coyote, raccoon dog, fox, rabbit, etc.

It isn’t clear if Gucci will go the same route as other luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney who eliminated leather products from their collections.

    And to think that they used to clown people for wear fake furs….now it’s trendy because it “saves” animals (the animals are still killed regardless though)

  • Kayke

    I’m on the fence with this…..though I agree technologies are there where animal hides and fur is not needed …. On the other hand organic materials are biodegradable, while the alternatives are not.

    Mentally challenged Conway restaurant worker allegedly tortured by employer

    CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – It’s a tale of alleged torture: a mentally-challenged man says he was physically abused by his employer for years.
    “He would beat me with belts and all that,” says 37-year-old John Christopher Smith. “Take the tongs to the grease on my neck.”
    Smith explained what happened while looking out over the Waccamaw River, alongside one of his advocates.
    “I want him to go to prison, and I want to be there when he go,” Smith said. He has been diagnosed with mild delayed cognitive development, a condition that results in intellectual functioning significantly below average.
    He says he had been working at J&J Cafeteria in downtown Conway since he was 12 years old, busing tables, cooking and doing all sorts of tasks. “I started off washing dishes after school,” he said.
    It was a job Smith says he liked, until the manager, 50-year-old Bobby Paul Edwards, the brother of the owner of the restaurant, allegedly started physically abusing him back in 2010. Court documents describe awful things like beatings with a belt, choking, slapping, and even an incident where Smith was punched with a closed fist.
    He says he never said anything because he was scared.

    The next hearing in the criminal case is March 13, 2015 at 8:30 a.m.

    Now I’m laughing thinking about Jaheim.

  • Look@m3

    He been working there since he was 12 years old. I want to know was his parents even looking for him?

  • Look@m3

    Kind of weird that a dude is ok with fuzzy stuff on his toes……I wish I would bring my hubby something fuzzy, Fendi, Gucci or prada. I might get slapped.

    I am weeping right now. Too funny. Maybe I’ll put that on my registry.

    Was he living there too? I thought he just went there everyday to work.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    And another thing. They didn’t mention anything about payment. If this man didn’t get paid, the owner should have to pay him back with interest for 25 years.

    I know it’s not politically correct but I like fur… (hangs head shame…not really…)

    Who knew Being Mary Jane was going the cancelled??? I liked the show promise when it first came on but it wasn’t as good when they moved it from the ATL to NYC.

  • Look@m3

    I agree… and he should own that diner for pain and suffering

  • You Could Never

    Who knew Being Mary Jane was going the cancelled??

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I did… as soon as she sued BET. She brung it on herself. Got that crappy ass storyline which made her ratings go to trash and then shown the door. they didnt want to be sued again but wanted to be rid of her.

    I’m so sorry this show is being cancelled! I just started binge watching and I’m only on season two episodes!!! I love this show!!!

  • Django the God

    Hey, what’s up!

    These shoes are the dumbest things I’ve seen in a long time…(but if I had them I’d damn sure wear them!!! LOLLOLLOL)

  • Kim’s Original Face

    LMAOOO she looks like the queen ant.

  • cherrypie

    You my friend are correct. The writing was on the wall when she sued and the story went public. The show was very promising when it first came on. Add this to a long list of black shows that have been cancelled. Ex. Underground, Survivor’s Remorse, Scandal, Rosewood, etc…

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!

    The first two seasons were definitely the best. When they moved from ATL to NYC and she started dating the ugly dude is where they messed up.

    YUP. She don’t see Cookie Lyons suing anyone.

  • cherrypie

    They will give us a 2 hour mini-movie to wrap it up. That’s it. No new season.

  • hottlanta

    I refuse to go out with a man who looks like he is wearing a mangy/matted hair puppy on his feet. Still can’t stand those shoes for women.

  • Justlooknout
  • Tay Gee

    Yea, it was about that time though. Not sure where else it could go at this point. I mean her parents split, Niecy and her dad got their life together and Mary Jane secured her spot as lead anchor. The only thing left is to draw out a story line about the pregnancy. #justmythoughts #dontkillme lol

  • Quitedeliteful

    Damn!! If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!!

  • cherrypie

    Lol…yeah I hear ya. i’m glad they are at least giving us a wrap up with the two hour mini movie. I want to see if her parents get back together, what Niecy is going to do with her life and yes weather MJ will finally get married to blue eyes. For real, Insecure is my show. Hoping they will make it at an hour long show when it comes back.

  • FallenOne

    I hate those shoes. they look dirty. the fur dragging on the dirty concrete. and they are oxymoronic. why would summer and spring shoes include fur?

  • Gone Too Far

    Gabby gets a six figure salary per episode and she sued BET cos she wanted more right? I think that’s what happend but truth be told I’m surprised they went ahead with the show still, after all that because that was what delayed this past seasons premiere in the first place
