In Rome, PETA protesters swarmed outside the Fendi flagship store a few nights ago. The protest was in response to the use of fur in Fendi’s “Legends and Fairy Tales” fashion show at the famous Trevi Fountain.
The protest included a man clad as a”Karl Lagerfeld” Grim Reaper and protesters marched in the piazza before Fendi‘s iconic storefront. The papier-mâché head mask of the iconic designer posed motionless holding a sign that read: “Fendi: Fur is Death,” marked with the PETA logo.
Karl Lagerfeld has defended himself to the PETA organization in the past but has not commented on the latest protests.
