Vegan Fashion Soars Higher as Dr. Martens and Marc Jacobs Team Up
Vegan Fashion continues to make a name in the mainstream market as footwear giant Dr. Martens has collaborated with Marc Jacobs to launch a vegan 1460 boot. This pair of boots is one of the iconic boots of the Dr. Martens brand. The collaborative design of Marc Jacobs with the shoe company puts a twist to the cherry-red oxford colored shoes. It now features vegan-friendly stitching, a vegan heel-loop, and quite a unique set of chains and charms.
Dr. Martens said in an online statement that Marc Jacobs is a true artist who brilliantly added a unique and outspoken touch to his fashion designs. The statement said, "There's no exception with this unique collaboration. Draped with replicas of custom-made charms on a vegan-friendly upper, the imaginative designer delivers without creative compromise."
The shoe company continues its journey in the vegan fashion because last year their profit skyrocketed to 70 percent more in terms because of their vegan collection of boots. They were awarded Best Vegan Boot Collection in PETA's Fashion Awards.
Consumers nowadays are looking to purchase accessories, clothes, and shoes which are consistent to promote a sustainable lifestyle. Vegan living has become the fastest-growing lifestyle in the world, not just because of the recent pandemic but because people are becoming more and more responsible for their purchases that affect their health and the environment.
Aside from Dr. Martens, luxury brands like Coach, Burberry, Michael Kors among others have taken a stand in promoting cruelty-free and sustainable fashion. The fashion industry has become more open to vegan fabrics.
The Marc Jacobs 1460 Boot is 100% Polyurethane upper, 100% Cotton lining, 100% PVC sole and 3cm Heel height. This reimagined vegan leather in a charming twist is currently sold out. To know more about Dr. Martens vegan collection click here.
