“What the Olsens lack in creativity, they try to make up for in shock value,” PETA said in a statement to Eonline.com. “ Sadly, it’s the foxes, calves, and alligators—who often have the fur ripped off them while they are still conscious and able to feel pain—who pay the dearest price.”
The bag has at least one fan — celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, who declared the furry accessory “a fashion favorite” that combines “comfort with class.”
The fuzzy knapsack is a bargain compared to its alligator skin incarnation.
It retails for $39,000.
Actress Jessica Biel recently tweeted a photo of herself wearing the $3,900 black calfskin version of the backpack, a gift from the Olsens.
The fashion world continues to be impressed with the former child stars.
In June, the twins were named Womenswear Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
Still, PETA will forever hold a grudge against the glamorous duo.
