PETA vs. Armani: The Gloves (and Clothes) Come Off

Written by PETA | August 26, 2009

Recently, members of PETA Asia-Pacific and Animosa stripped down to their daisies and took to their coffins outside the Giorgio Armani store in Taipei.

In 2007, Armani vowed to stop using fur, but several months later, his collection was full of rabbit fur.

PETA Asia-Pacific wanted to remind the designer that the pelts, ripped from the bodies of rabbits who kick and scream before they are hung upside down and decapitated, are indeed fur—and that fur is dead.

    If youre going to use fur, make sure its a dead dog in the road or an animal that killed it for food. trapping and raising animals for fur is the Absolut worst. Andy Warhol said, no more.

  • Kelsey says:

    What a great demo!

  • cecil says:

    GOOD ARMANI YOU HAVE MY FAMILY RESPECT WHEN YOU SAID YOU WILL NOT USE FUR AGAIN.NOW IS ALL THE RESPECT GONE… TO THE TOILET I HAVE NEWS X YOU GIORGIO. ITALY IS BEAUTIFUL JUST LIKE YOU BUT DIFFERENT IN SOME THINGS. PEOPLE THERE STAND X HIS WORD AND YOU YOU YOU FLASHED TO THE TOILET WELL DONE!!!!!!!!!!ARMANI BRAVO.

  • Scruffy says:

    I’m never buying rabbit fur again. Ever.

  • Bishan N. Shukla says:

    Armani I did not know you as a liar who could not keep his words and used fur in your dresses. With furs those beautiful dresses looked bloodstained to me. Please clean up your wardrobe and send the models for a bath.

    Theravada Buddhist’s seem to have animal rights down albeit with more taste and tact. Also I agree with Edward.

  • Edward says:

    It’s the idea that people can shout things like “I shall never buy Armani!” one day and the next day “OMG I love this Armani stuff!” that gets under my skin.

  • Michelle says:

    This is sickening. I am really disappointed with Armani.. I have a blouse from them and I honestly dont even want to look at it right now

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Yeah Edward that’s the way it works. You patronize and support ethical companies and keep your money far away from the bastards. Just basic psychology that works very well with big companies if we all stick together.

  • Edward says:

    You people would all be buying everything Armani if they became a “vegan company” and held out on its promise. It’s like one minute “ARMANI IS SUBHUMAN!” and then the next minute “OMG Armani is the shizzle.” Even if they stopped using fur instead of being vegan you people would still be saying “Yay! Armani is cool!” While the day before it would be “ARMANI IS THE ZODIAC KILLER!” Just sayin’ Oh Edward what have you gotten yourself into?

  • Thea Smit says:

    Armani makes me sick. I can afford Armani but the rabbits need their fur much more than I do. I hate Armani

  • Petunia says:

    How sad that Armani can’t find a more humane way to make a living. Fur? Really? That’s the only material he can use? Not very creative

  • August Katrina says:

    I was going to buy my boyfriend Armani cologne for Christmas until I read this!!!How disgusting!! I will never contribute to the suffering of animals!!

  • Carla* says:

    Nice Demo!! Gets their attention!!

  • Teresa Wright says:

    Anyone who inflicts this level of pain towards another creature is the lowest of lowest. No amount of vanity and external beauty’ can compensate for ugliness of this internally chosen action.

  • Katie says:

    I’m part of PETA AsiaPacific and wassadly too busy to come and protest. I love fashion and personally fur is SO outdated cruel and discusting. With fake fur you can get it in any colour you want and no animal had to die for it. Fur is DEAD!!

  • April says:

    ARMANI SCREWED UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Brien Comerford says:

    The subhumans who torture rabbits fo fur are incarnations from hell !

  • Carla says:

    Armani… you have poor taste your clothes are ugly as hell and I will never buy or wear your crap. How gives you the right to use innocent animals for your welfare jerk off.

  • Ian Hughes says:

    Giorgio Armani is a liar!

  • paola mata says:

    no need for cruelty BE FUR FREE FOR GOOD

  • Christian says:

    Makes me sick.
