Designer John Bartlett is no stranger to gorgeous cruelty-free fashion. His latest collaboration with Ruthie Davis brings his love of animals to design. The pair have designed a line of cruelty-free footwear adorably called Ruthie Davis (HEART) john Bartlett, clad in a vibrant camouflage style print of Bartlett’s late pup, a three legged pit bull named Tiny Tim.
Both designers have always held animal welfare close to their hearts, so a collaboration was only natural. Bartlett’s applied his iconic print to three of Ruthie Davis shoes, including a classic trainer, a high top sneaker, and pointy pump. The cruelty-free designs pop in a pattern of brown, dark turquoise and bright orange silhouettes of Bartlett’s trusty Tiny Tim. Each high-end kick is made from topnotch sustainable and vegan materials, with accents like studded spikes and metallic sheen.
Davis’ eco-luxe line has already grabbed the attention of fans like Lady Gaga and Emma Roberts, so its not surprising that her Bartlett collaboration line starts at around $415 a pair. But animal lovers can take solace in knowing that 10 percent of the proceeds from each pair will be donated to the Tiny Tim Rescue Fund, Bartlett’s charitable organization that raises money for animal rescue groups, which was created in honor of his late beloved dog.
