A flock of animals – rabbit, cow and even crocodile – in the Opéra Garnier’s upstairs corridors, while Paris Fashion Week is in full swing. You are not attending a theatrical representation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm but at the latest Stella McCartney show.

Under the naive atmosphere, the British stylist insists on the same message: no fur, no leather for the most sustainable fashion possible. Vegan enthusiast whose convictions have gone public for a very long time, Stella McCartney has proven once again her ability to make luxury and eco-consciousness meet through one of the most hyped Parisian Fashion Week’s shows.

Among the best clothes, vegetal leather dresses huge coats made of koba – a new alternative to fur that the stylist just launched – stressed her fight against animal cruelty since her namesake brand’s birth in 2001.

« You won’t have their skins, nor mine », that could sum up Paul McCartney daughter’s message to the global-warming skeptics who have recently gathered behind Naomi Seibt, the German teenager that stood against Greta Thunberg.

A youth that Stella McCartney targets and wants to convince at all cost, as she regularly organized meetings and talks with the young generations.

More than a desire, her commitment to resist climate change met once again with success during the second most polluting industry’s most important event.
