This month, fashion retailer Topshop will debut its first vegan leather shoe collection. Topshop’s Vegan Collection is made from high-quality animal-free materials (including vegan glue) and features six styles of open sandals and slingbacks in rich hues and patterns, including orange, nude, snakeskin, and crocodile. “We are really excited to be launching our first vegan collection this April. Initially, we are focusing on footwear and introducing six new styles that are produced alongside our premium shoe lines in Spain,” Topshop fashion director Maddy Evans said. “We can’t wait to see how shoppers respond to the design-led collection and how far we can push vegan products across our accessories offering.” Tomorrow, competing clothing brand H&M will release its Conscious Exclusive collection, which features items made with Piñatex (vegan leather made from pineapple leaves) and Orange Fiber (vegan silk made from oranges).
