Ethical shoes go chic – Beyond Skin SS12 collection

Beyond Skin

I had a great week last week attending the press days of some great brands as part of London press week. I was really impressed with Beyond Skin’s SS12 collection. For those of you not in the know (and I WAS one of you until last week) Beyond Skin is an ethical shoe label and according to them they like to ‘trade in a manner that is kind to our fellow humans, animals and wherever possible, our precious planet.’

Now whenever I hear sustainable, ethical, planet saving and footwear in the same sentence I immediately think birkenstocks worn with socks and untrendy, definitely unchic and wildly unpalatable thoughts that gave me indigestion and a headache. I have never for one nano second thought I would ever consider buying ethical footwear until I saw Beyond Skin’s collection. It is chic, sassy, very current and totally and utterly wearable.

I took some very bad pictures as you can see, but I will be buying their Amber wedge sandals with the missoni inspired wedge heel in either the gold or red. I will also (if the funds stretch that far), buy the classy Ella in navy with red detail which would be ideal for smart workwear or with jeans to dress them up!

Their footwear is made up of recycled faux suede called DINAMICA which is durable, long lasting and sustainable and made from 100% recycled materials. I can testify that DINAMICA feels lovely and soft and is perfect for footwear. Take a look for yourselves. Never has been so ethical been so goodlooking.
