As we revealed last month, Natalie Portman couldn’t find enough vegan shoes, so she decided to design a collection of them for Te Casan. Now if you visit the Te Casan website, you can check out the 20 piece collection and preorder a pair.
“As a vegan, I don’t wear leather, fur, or feathers,” Portman explains. “Shopping for clothes hasn’t proved too difficult, but finding chic footwear has definitely been a challenge.”
She had the help of her stylist, Kate Young who according to Style File, helped set up the Te Casan partnership. “We met with Kate and Natalie to discuss what Natalie was looking to do,” recalls Te Casan president Yaniv Shirazi, “and it was immediately clear that this would be a fantastic collaboration. There are so few animal-free collections out there, and Natalie’s ideas were really great, in terms of style.”
All 6 styles of shoes have names starting with P, which is rather sweet, with all styles available in a variety of colours.
