Social networks are shaken by the collection presented in Paris: they are outraged by the used animal heads | Life

Schiaparelli’s lion head dress was also presented on the catwalk, according to The Guardian.

“She was made from foam, wool, silk faux fur and hand painted to look as realistic as possible,” the brand said on Instagram.

For the avoidance of doubt, Schiaparelli added in capital letters that no animals were harmed in the creation of the image.

The fashion house chose to debut the controversial youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan in a dress that can be interpreted in many different ways. And this, it is believed, could have been a wrong move.

If anyone had chosen to wear a real lion’s head, according to commentators on social networks, it would have been K. Jenner.

One comment under the fashion house’s social media post, which has received more than 600 likes, read: “We need to stop portraying animals as luxury ‘products.’ They may be made of foam, but they are an endangered species that have historically been killed for their fur to make clothing.”

The fashion house, closely associated with the surrealist art movement, was founded in 1927. Like many luxury fashion brands of the time, the house, led by its founder Elsa Schiaparelli, used fur and animal skins in its initial heyday. Although in 2012 After Tod’s Group revived the brand, the large animal motifs remained, and the house later abandoned real fur.

True, not all animal rights activists were disturbed by the lion’s head. Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA, the world’s largest international animal rights organization, praised the image.

She told TMZ that the brand’s collection, which features three-dimensional animal heads, is “fabulously innovative” and “could be a statement against trophy hunting, where lion families are torn apart to satisfy human selfishness.”

The dress worn by K.Jenner was part of a collection of clothes designed by Daniel Roseberry. It also featured a black wolf head dress worn by Naomi Campbell and a strapless snow leopard dress with the same realistic animal head adorning the bodice.
