Now, considering all the contentious topics we could possibly talk about, the use of fur for fashion is normally one to hit the headlines. The strange thing is – it so rarely applies to men’s fashion that I felt compelled to bring this item to your attention; this hoody from Juicy Couture is both insanely expensive for what is essentially haute-chav and questionable ethically.
Made from cotton and real rabbit fur is definitely an interesting combination. Coupled with the fact that the garment is otherwise incredibly plain in grey with a standard zip and drawstrings, you have to wonder what made the company venture upon these lines. Maybe it’s for the publicity – a publicity stunt to provide the impetus for chit-chatter to start amongst fashion moguls about the Juicy Couture line. Perhaps they are trying to make inroads into the male fashion market by causing controversy.
Is this appropriate as a marketing hook? You decide.
Available from Nordstrom for $675.
