I may have mentioned this once or twice before, but I simply adore Vivienne Westwood. And just when I thought I had gotten all of the fangirling out of my system (previously written about here and here), I find there are so many reasons to simply love the iconic “Queen of Punk” even more!
I recently came across some news that she just dropped a new collection of environmentally friendly shoes in collaboration with Brazilian shoe company Melissa, with whom I subsequently found out she has been in partnership with since 2008 (which as it happens is the exact date that I moved under my rock).
Made from 100% recycled plastic, these shoes come in a variety of styles and colors, are quite comfortable (according to a majority of the reviews I’ve read) and most importantly, are responsibly and ethically produced. But it is no surprise as Melissa has been at the forefront of the sustainability trend for the last 30 years, and Vivienne is simply, well Vivienne.
There really isn’t anything else to say except I absolutely love them. The full collection is available on the ASOS website, but be forewarned, every pair is so lovely and adorable, the challenge is deciding which ones to order!
