Natalie Portman is known for her animals friendly fashion taste, and now she can even indulge in her on vegan shoes collection. In collaboration with Te Casan, Portman has designed a collection of vegan friendly shoes that will debut at the brand’s New York boutique in February 2008 (pre-order pairs from January 15 with 5% of all vegan shoe profits going to charity).
Te Casan, a unique limited editions shoes boutique with a 7500 sf flagship store in Soho NY (which looks like no store you' ve ever seen by the way) offers women luxurious craftsmanship that is still attainable - and is markedly different. Each of their shoes is numbered in a limited edition series, which is imprinted on the bottom of the shoe. These beautiful shoes can only be found at te casan. "We value the unique footprint that each woman has on her own environment. We value the artistic integrity each designer possesses. te casan is about creating shoes that embody this same individuality."
I can promise a detailed report from the store, once this collection comes out.
