What a huge faux pas! The Humane Society of the United States is saying that world famous department store Barneys New York passed off a fur-trimmed 3.1 Phillip Lim parka as the fake deal even though it was most likely made of real coyote fur. That means customers who purchased the jacket thinking it was cruelty-free are in for a rude awakening, and Barneys will have to pay the consequences.
