Mara & Mine Collaborates With Victoria's Secret Model to Release Vegan Sandals
Feminine and “off-duty” flat designer shoe company Mara & Mine recently unveiled a new collaboration with South African model and Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel. The collaboration is the shoe company’s first “collection of handmade vegan leather sandals,” and is set to debut on May 6.
Footwear News caught up with Swanepoel, as well as Mara & Mine founders Jasmine Yarbrough and Tamie Ingham, to discuss the new collection, with Swanepoel stating:
“The inspiration came from my love of the summer months, travel and my bohemian and minimalist style. I wanted to create a summer collection that is flattering, simple and ethical, to show people that vegan accessories can be just as beautiful and luxurious as leather accessories.”
Yarbrough added that the company “sourced the highest quality sustainable and eco friendly faux leathers” for the collection, and the website notes that the collection features “gladiator styles, fashion favorite slide and wrap around designs” perfect for “nomads around the globe.” The line also benefits “mothers2mothers‘s work to eliminate pediatric AIDS and create healthy families and communities.”
You can see the five-piece collection (most of which do include sea shells) on the Mara & Mine website. The prices range from $210 to $285.
