Armani vs. Peta

Looks like Giorgio Armani is up to some trouble with PETA. Publications such as New York Magazine as well as bloggers-a-plenty are reporting that after commenting that he wouldn't be using fur in upcoming collections, Armani has gone against these promises by using an excessive amount of fur in his Fall '08 collection, much to the dismay of PETA and surely animal rights activists around the world. His jackets, dresses, and even skirts have fur trimming, not to mention his new fur coats for babies. Gross.
Dan Matthews, the President of PETA commented, "We feel betrayed. I have met with Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and many other designers who once used fur but had a change of heart, and not one of them broke their promise". No word from an Armani rep (shocking).
Nevermind PETA. Who buys fur coats for their babies?
