Well, sorry, but I just can’t really cope with this! There’s just something disturbing about the whole thing and – yes – it sort of looks like the poor dog has died and been made into a stuffed cushion!
Totally agree with Juanita’s comment. Not funny at all. Very Sad to see a stuffed dog (or any animal, in this ‘dispaly’). Cruelty is never cool or funny or chic. PETA has it’s work cut out for them. Thank god for thoughtful dynamic designers like Stella McCartney, whom I love to support by buying dynamic pieces each season, and good on you, other conscious designers hard at work out there. You are on the right path, and I thank you.

the animal is not a dog it is a cougar and yes it’s taxidermy. This is a work of art restyled by Andrea Pompilio with his FW1213 collection. It is a strong stylisng statement and provoked quite a buzz at Pitti. Thanx Scott for posting it! ^_^
