Vogue - Luxury Vegan Shoes Are Finally, Actually Happening
Alfredo Pīferi, formerly the head designer at Jimmy Choo, debuted his eponymous collection at Milan Fashion Week in February, composed of sleek (and 100% vegan) boots and curvy sandals with removable components, like a rhinestone bracelet or soquette ruffle at the ankle.
“I wanted to create a brand with purpose,” he said on a call from London.
“Five years ago, I stopped eating meat and discovered so many other flavours I’d never considered until meat wasn’t an option anymore. I thought, Maybe I can do the same thing with shoes. Nobody was doing sexy and sustainable.”
