Kitson hasn’t been relevant since former bobble head BFF’s Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie frolicked to their Robertson Blvd location, and dropped a couple of grand on overpriced Hello Kitty-esque paraphernalia. It’s a shame that in a sad attempt to remain popular, Kitson feels the need to stock its stores with the stolen pelts of innocent minks, foxes, and rabbits.
Back in December, I warned Kitson that if they didn’t stop selling fur by January 1st, I would go after them. They never responded to me, but I know they heard me because most of their fur products had been pulled from their online store. So today I decided to take a little field trip, and I cycled over to Robertson Blvd to see if any fur was still on their sales floor. I was appalled by the amount of fur they had for sale. They had everything from mink coats, to fox/rabbit fur vests, Canadian Goose parkas with fur trim, and fur lined hunters’ caps.
Perhaps if one of the sales girls there hadn’t been so rude, this blog might not have been as scathing as it it, but honey, you pissed off the wrong vegan. Fur Free Los Angeles is calling for a total boycott of Kitson until they go fur free. We’ve created a Facebook page: Kitson: Please Stop Selling Fur as well as apetition.
Here’s the deal Kitson, if you want us to call off this whole campaign, you must pull all the animal fur products from your store and introduce faux fur items. When you do this, we will happily promote your store as we’ve done with Planet Blue, Urban Outfitters, LF Stores, and other stores that we’ve successfully gotten to go fur free. Kitson, if you decided to ignore us, we’ll only get louder…
