Fake-for-Real Fur from Imaginary Animals

Here's the solution for all you animal lovers who are also fashion lovers: Instead of a depressing campaign about animals killed for their fur, the genius World Wildlife Fund launched a clothes and accessories brand designed by Boudicca, a London designer's collective.

Fur is indeed very fashionable these days, as we could see this winter. But if real fur is a sign of quality to some, it's also a sign of cruelty and waste to others. WWF and Boudicca resolved this dilemma by creating furry clothes from imaginary animals. There is, for instance, fur from the very cute deer-seal "Bamboseal". You can actually buy the fake-for-real furry collection on the Wonder World Fur campaign website. I must say that the design is as appealing as the concept. All fur is certified 100% imaginary.

But one question remains: Doesn't seeing these adorable fantasy animals make us feel as guilty using their fur as the fur from real, live animals?

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
