Fashion Facts

The first luxury brand to ban using animal skin and fur: Animal leather was introduced to the market as it sufficed to make clothing and accessories durable. In order to enhance the quality and add luxury to bags, shoes, etc, exotic skins were collected along with fur. With this, brands were able to introduce items that could be of an investment, and prized possession, to anyone purchasing. However, with more and more animals on the verge of extinction, and the process of skin extracting not being ethical, Channel took the bold step of giving up the use of leather or fur. Instead, Channel came up with new, innovative ways to make bags that could still be durable and worth purchasing, avoiding all forms of animal cruelty.  

Fashion history

You know how high heels are now solely associated with women? That wasn’t always the case. Contrary to popular belief, high heels were first worn by men, and were considered as a symbol of masculinity in the 17th century. Soon after, women adopted this particular trend, too.

Platform heels, on the other hand, were a necessity for women from as early as the 15th century, especially in Venice. Not only did it elevate their status, but also saved them from the puddles and mud on the streets.
