According to E! Online on Wednesday, June 27, 2012, PETA found Olsen twins’ fur backpack as offensive items, which were made of patches of animal fur and among those included on their award-winning luxury fashion line, ‘The Row‘, a brand named after London‘s historic Savile Row.
“If it looks like a troll and acts like a troll, it’s probably a Trollsen Twin – or someone wearing one of their new $16,000 totes, which are made from the fur and skins of innocent animals,” PETA was quoted telling to E! News, with the animal rights group notably slamming the Olsen twins for years since 2007.
“What the Olsens lack in creativity, they try to make up for in shock value. 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.” PETA added.
The Olsen twins, who were born on June 13, 1986 as twins but not identical, are known in the fashion industry and won 2012 Womenswear Designers of the Year award during the Council of the Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards last June 4, which was held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City.
