Images of a £750 fox fur shawl - dubbed the 'vagina scarf' - have been circulating online.
Fendi's Touch Of Fur Shawl, which has been suggested to resemble female genitalia, has become a hot topic among Twitter users.
The costly item is made not only from fur, but wool and silk - meaning it is comprised entirely of animal-sourced materials.
Multiple Twitter users have made posts noting the scarf's unusual appearance.
One wrote: "Look at this fancy scarf. It looks like vulva and costs £750. Ha."
"So this fancy scarf looks a lot like a vagina," Another added.
Animal fur is being dropped from the lines of an increasing number of top designers.
