PETA just sent noted Birkin lover Victoria Beckham a vegan "V"irkin bag
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants Victoria Beckham to reconsider her love of exotic skins. Fresh off its indictment of the appalling conditions maintained by some of Hermés’s crocodile- and alligator-skin suppliers, the animal-rights group has sent the British fashion designer/erstwhile Spice Girl/noted Birkin bag enthusiast a cruelty-free version of the coveted carryall to call her own. Crafted in the United States by Freedom of Animals , a sustainable label that has been referred to as the “Céline of vegan fashion,” the one-of-a-kind “V”irkin (the “V” stands for “vegan,” natch ) features “mock croc” faux leather in a rich burgundy hue.
