MailOnline has approached Florence Welch’s representatives for further comment.

In April 2016, Florence discussed how she wore fur shoes which were designed by her friend and Gucci’s Alessandro Michele.

Michele was said to have designed his debut Gucci collection to Florence + The Machine’s album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.

Florence told The Telegraph about the exhibition at the time: ‘It’s about exposing yourself, in a way. Alessandro literally put cut-out loafers with fur in them on the runway. 

‘Even I, when I first saw them, was like “What the f***?!” But then when you wear them, they go with everything and they look great.’

Since then, Gucci’s CEO Marco Bizzarri revealed Gucci would remove fur from all of its collections as of spring/summer 2018.

He told Vogue: ‘We’ve been talking about it, Alessandro [Michele] and I, for a few months. Technology is now available that means you don’t need to use fur. The alternatives are luxurious. There is just no need.’

Florence + The Machine are set to begin their US and Canada tour in Arcosanti, Arizona on May 10.

They will then make a beeline across the country to play a show at the infamous Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado.

The band will also cross the border to make stops in Toronto and Montreal, Canada at the end of June.

Florence + the Machine will perform in Mexico, Belgium and Switzerland before heading back to the UK for the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, London.

The band recently premiered their version of Jenny of Oldstones in episode two of the new season of Game of Thrones.

The track, composed by Ramin Djawadi, appeared in the closing credits of the much-anticipated episode.

Game Of Thrones’ Podrick Payne had performed a rendition of the track earlier in the HBO show.

Florence and the Machine’s Ceremonials track Seven Devils also appeared in Game of Thrones after it was used in the season two trailer in 2012.
