On Our Radar: Natalie Portman's Vegan Shoe Collection for Te Casan

On Our Radar: Natalie Portman's Vegan Shoe Collection for Te Casan

Now here's a celebrity designer foray that sounds promising. Hollywood sweetheart and vegetarian Natalie Portman will design a collection for New York shoe boutique Te Casan. If this red patent shoe is an indicator of the look and feel of her collection, sign me up. Speaking of, pre-orders can be placed January 15 and the collection is due out in February. Sign up for Te Casan's email list to stay in the know. Oh, and did I mention prices will be around that $200 soft spot?

I am so excited about this! Natalie Portman is cool, those shoes are gorgeous, and although $200 is a bit more than I can afford, I would be willing to pay it for a pair of truly comfortable fabulous shoes that would become a staple. I mean, when I think about it, I've already spent much more than that for many, many pairs of cheap uncomfortable shoes. Better to splurge a bit for quality. shoe fanatic blog: http://shoelala.wordpress.com/

I really admire her. The shoes are a little too expensive but they look very cute, at least these red mary janes.

About the trend thing, Natalie Portman's been a strict vegetarian for years. I also remember reading an interview a few years ago where she said she had a hard time finding vegan shoes, this being one of the reasons why she had a lot of Stella McCartney shoes. Vegan might be trendy at the moment, but at least Natalie Portman's been advocating the same thing for quite a while - trendy or not.

Yay! I've been trying to buy less leather goods! As far as the environmental impact goes, I am trying to make sure I only buy things that I will wear for sure for a long time, and then donate them when I'm done with them. If an item gets a ton of wear, and you keep it for a long time, you can lessen the environmental impact that way. Asia-I don't get it...you refuse to do something that would be good for the environment and animals because it's trendy, regardless of the good it could do for the world? Like if it were trendy to donate money to rape victims in LA you would refuse to do it? I don't get it, please explain this to me so I can be cool too!!! Btw...Stella McCartney is known for making animal-friendly clothing, perhaps you are too cool to wear her stuff also!

The red shoes looks basis and boring though.

Very cool and I expect "generic" vegan shoes to pop up extremely soon now. And I'm sure they'll be added to the major lines as well.

Agreed Foxie. Who cares if it's a cliche? Who even thinks like that? Every little bit helps. I think these shoes are great.

i never would have guessed natalie would do this, but it's for a good cause so i'll give props to her. it's just too bad my college debt won't allow me to purchase anything above $50. lol.

Trendy or not trendy, it's good to care about the environment and animals. It's just as stupid to NOT be vegan just for the sake of not looking cliche as it is to BE vegan simply to be like everyone else.

Ha!!! yeah . . .the only shoes i pay $200-plus bucks on are Louboutins, and Stella McCartney's . . . I eat hambugers . . . When you live here in LA, the whole Vegan thing is more of a trend than it is about saving the Earth and animals . . . it's so cliche to be Vegan here.

I didn't know Nat was into design. Of all the young celebrities that had design aspirations, Natalie Portman wouldn't have made the top of my list. This should be interesting. Oh and does she look fantastic in that pic or what?
