SkinBags: New Meaning in Grotesque Fashion

How far would you go to be different? While this season’s fashion is all about mixing textiles and using new materials in garments, the human epidermis should not be included. A French company called “SkinBags” is using imitation human skin to create bags and jackets. I suppose it’s hypocritical to say we shouldn’t imitate human skin in our designs when people everywhere are wearing animal fur and leather, but let’s face it, isn’t wearing  human skin just slightly cannibalistic (even if it is fake)? This is one line I just can’t cross.
