Style that’s kind to animals
After many years of development, Hugo Boss has launched its first vegan men’s suit, made from certified organic Italian linen. As part of the fashion house’s Responsible Tailoring collection, the cruelty-free suit is included in this year’s spring-summer collection.
No wool or silk has been used, and the suit sports a ‘PETA-Approved Vegan’ logo, meaning that dyes, glues and other substances are also free from animal-derived materials. PETA has applauded Hugo Boss for launching the suit, now available in the UAE, and hopes that other companies will follow in its footsteps.
Jason Baker, PETA senior vice president of international campaigns, said, “We are delighted to see that animal-friendly fashion is in demand in the UAE and around the world. People can now buy business suits that are not only stylish and fashionable but also cruelty-free and sustainable.”
Most premium suits are made of animal-derived materials, often associated with animal suffering. PETA and its international affiliates have investigated shearing operations and revealed rampant abuse, including bloody wounds and rough treatment.
Available in three colours – beige, dark blue and black – the Hugo Boss vegan suit costs around AED3,286. Find it in-store and online.
