After the world's leading fashion houses such as Versace, Maison Margiela, Gucci, Givenchy and Michael Kors who has joined the league of fur-free earlier this year, the fashion giant, Chanel, has just declared the end of using 'exotic skins', a day before its 2018 Métiers d'Art fashion show at Metropolitan Museum of Art New York.

So what are exotic skins and how's Chanel going to retain its first-class quality under this act?

In an interview with WWD, president of fashion at Chanel, Bruno Pavlovsky says that 'exotic skins' such as the skins of crocodile, lizard, snake and stingray will be replaced by other materials with less environmental impact that meets Chanel's quality and ethical standards at the same time.

And the research and development of textile, fabric and leather will become one of the priorities of the French house's vision.
