Our rather stylish vegan footwear collection is now available for Autumn/Winter ’13 for pre-order. The shoes will be arriving from our vegan shoe manufacturer in Spain on 18th September when we will have them posted out to you immediately.
Autumn/Winter 2013 presents a vintage style collection of footwear, featuring soft shades of rich purple plum, dark teal with deep violet pink. Bold silouhettes with subtle detailing create a collection of wearable yet unique footwear for the discerning, style-led ladies.
This season fuses vintage styling with understated glamour & a retro style. Our signature use of prints & weaves continues; soft metallic leopard prints, glistening herring-bone jacquard, plus a strong and unusual geometric design in an array of contrasting colours.
A key print for AW’13 is geometric bold designs. This features strongly in our new collection of leather-free shoes, with this bespoke Italian made fabric being the star of the show (and shoe). We are head over vegan heels in love with the Rosa, a square toe vegan platform court shoe with faux vegan suede heel & platform cover, with a black, grey and gold yellow geometric print on the main upper of the court shoe.
We can see the likes of Leona Lewis, Anne Hathaway or Natalie Portman wearing them!
AW’13 sees the continuation of our ‘animal head’ vegan loafer style pump range of footwear. For SS’13 we featured the Lupo style, which is our cute little English Bull Terrier dog head embroidered on the front. Due to the success of the dog head we are continuing this theme on for another season… can you guess what we animal we will feature for Autumn Winter 2013?!
A horse’s head! This AW’13 season features a powerful horse portrait image on the toe of flat slippers. The horse head embroidery was designed by UK graphic designer, Cat Finnie, and a percentage of the profit of this style will go to PETA charity. Ideal for all of you horse and animal lovers out there, plus they make a wonderful gift!
We are debating which animal to star on a shoe for next AW’14, as for Spring Summer 2014 we already have a creature in mind, that we have an inkling you will love! (here’s a clue; it’s cuddly & fluffy & sometimes a little but aloof). We’re afraid you will have to wait until the new year to find out what it is!
Another favourite from our AW’13 vegan footwear range is the Kitty design, which has a very vintage style. Kitty is made from 100% vegan faux suede, and has some non-leather (pleather shoes) metallic inserts which glisten delightfully. This shoe is the ultimate party shoe, and will look killer with a pink clutch & a cocktail in your hand. These shoes are not made for our classic British weather, more of a taxi shoe!
Our lead fabric for our vegetarian shoes remains to be the marvellous DINAMICA® recycled faux suede, this exciting new material is the ultimate in eco-friendly fabric technology. Manufactured in Italy, DINAMICA® is durable, long lasting and sustainable and made from 100% recycled materials. Unlike animal suede’s DINAMICA® does not water-mark and is available in an array of stunning colours which are soft, luxurious and make the perfect guilt-free shoes.
Beyond Skin is the first UK footwear label to embrace this new material, which is currently used by brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton for luggage & Jaguar & Merceds Benz as luxury interiors.
We hope that you find some styles that you like from our Boutique AW’13 range of vegetarian high heels and vegan flat shoes. We must advise you that if they’re all a little too sparkly for your taste, we do have a new range of more wearable, affordable vegan footwear arriving later this month also.
Happy browsing & if you would like any help choosing then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
