Pet rights group Peta has urged Kate Moss to stop wearing fur after the luxury brand Saint Lauren released the material.

Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said it had written to Moss, tells her that “the only hope of staying relevant in today’s fur-free fashion world” would be to do the same.

The group also said they would stop using their poster, which apparently shows her in a Saint Laurent fox coat along with a picture of a captured fox.

The caption reads: “Who had the best time?”

Moss, 47, who led Saint Laurent’s spring campaign this year, has so far not commented.

“Young people today do not want to buy clothes made from the skins of animals that have suffered from dirty, cramped cages throughout their miserable lives,” said Peta’s vice president Mimi Bekhechi.

“Peta is happy to help Kate swear off her fur by taking off her old coats.”

The Saint Lauren parent company Kering said last week that it would go “completely fur-free”, starting with the autumn collections 2022.

Another of the group’s brands, Gucci, stopped using fur in 2018, and the announcement means that Alexander McQueen will also be fur – free.

Kering chief and multibillionaire Fran├žois-Henri Pinault said in a statement: “When it comes to animal welfare, our group has always shown its willingness to improve practices within its own supply chain and the luxury sector in general.

“It’s time to take another step forward by stopping the use of fur in all our collections.

“The world has changed, along with our customers, and luxury must, of course, adapt to that.”

Mariah Carey and Kim Cattrall are among the stars who have donated to Peta’s amnesty program, which uses fur clothing for education and sends it to the game reserve for bedding for orphaned animals.
