Natalie Portman has collaborated with a US fashion firm to launch a range of vegan footwear.
The Natalie Portman Collection – made in partnership with specialty shoe retailer Te Casan and the actress’ stylist Kate Young – will feature 20 pairs of limited edition, hand-crafted designs that are completely animal-friendly, with a price tag of $200 each.
“As a vegan, I don’t wear leather, fur, or feathers,” she says. “Shopping for clothes hasn’t proved too difficult, but finding chic footwear has definitely been a challenge.”
Yaniv Shirazi, Te Casan president, addsed: “We met with Kate and Natalie to discuss what Natalie was looking to do 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.”
The line will debut in stores 1 February with 100 per cent of proceeds benefitting The Nature Conservancy, an organisation dedicated to protecting the environment.
