Beauty Fashion Model Girl in Mink Fur Coat
The craze for furry pom-pom bobble hats and handbag charms shows no sign of abating, and there’s one brand that there’s seemingly no escape from as it’s relentlessly plugged by celebrities on social media.
Popski London makes coats, hats and gilets using real mink, raccoon, chinchilla, rabbit and fox fur and is worn by stars from the Made in Chelsea cast to models Vogue Williams and Lottie Moss.
Popski London insist that both its real and fake furs are ethically sourced, but experts have questioned why stars would plug a brand that uses animal pelts in many of its products in the first place.
Mimi Bekhechi, Director of International Programmes at PETA told Femail: ‘So-called ‘celebrities’ who wear fur from this junky shop are invariably taking freebies, while elegant, glamorous stars choose Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, or other luxury British brands that are proudly fur-free.’

Vogue Williams, who previously blasted Kim Kardashian for dressing North in a fur coat, came under criticism for wearing Popski’s parka with a rabbit-fur collar and lining
lLast month, Vogue Williams was busily championing Popski products, including a bobble hat and rabbit lined coat while filming The Jump before pulling out due to knee injury.
Yet a year earlier, she criticised Kim Kardashian for putting North in a fur coat, saying: ‘I don’t really see the need to dress a child in fur.’
