Isabel Marant Etoile jacket, Rag & Bone cords, Isabel Marant boots and scarf.

I recently got my hands on an Isabel Marant jacket that I've been looking for for a long time. The jacket is brand new, but was part of the 2008 (?) collection. I love the shape and the washed out colour, but I'm hesitant about the detachable rabbit fur collar. I've never owned anything fur in my life, but have tons of leather shoes/boots. I really love leather. Fur is different, thought. I find it hard to believe that this rabbit ended up as food. I might also add that I haven't eaten red meat in 17 years. I was a vegetarian for seven years, but couldn't resist the thought of canned tuna :), so I eat fish. It makes no sense, so maybe I'm as inconsistent when it comes to fur/leather as when it comes to food. I would never wear a fur coat, but I love A.P.C's sheepskin coat - hypocrite again! So, I'm trying to figure out if I'm OK with this fur collar. I could use the jacket without the collar, but it doesn't look half as nice. Sorry about the pictures, it's so hard to photograph black. What's your take on fur, or fur details?
