Beyond Skin’s “do no harm” ethos extends beyond kindness to animals. The label frequently uses planet-pandering materials such as organic cotton, hemp, and recycled plastic bottles. A regular collaborator of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Beyond Skin recently partnered with the animal-rights group, along with Suzy Amis Cameron’s “Red Carpet Green Dress” initiative, to shoe actress and former “Bond Girl” Olga Kurylenko for the 2014 Oscars.
“To us at Beyond Skin this way of working makes good sense because we are passionate about making a difference whilst staying true to our ethos: that of creating beautiful, ethical footwear for discerning style-led ladies proving that fashion and ethics can go hand in hand,” says Whittle. “[We want to] be the change you see in the world.”
The shoes retail from £87 to £250 and are available at select retailers worldwide, as well as online at www.beyondskin.co.uk.
