Last, but not least, the final installment of inspiration behind our debut collection of vegan footwear! Our goal is to make a conscious lifestyle accessible and stylish, so it’s important to us as a brand that we practice what we preach. SUSI is constantly on the lookout for sustainable opportunities from our designs to production processes. For our first-ever collection, we’ve left out the nasty stuff like real leather, suede, and fur, and incorporated sustainable, natural fibers into our shoes like cotton, hemp, denim, and recycled PU made from old plastic bottles, demonstrating that vegan fashion can be sexy, modern, and versatile without partaking in inhumane practices.
A SUSI signature, the patent Emerson brogues are bound to be a hit. Its combination of tomboy-ish mass appeal with high-shine makes it practical without compromising any style points. A central figure in Transcendentalism, Ralph Waldo Emerson explored human nature and individuality, and held insanely progressive feminist views for his time. Hey Ralph, this is for you! Bonus points for the Emerson: these bad boys are made from old plastic bottles. Everything old can be new again!
Brigitte Bardot. What more can we say? The talent, those eyes and lips, that voluminous hair - she was the original #bodygoals before the internet even existed. Let out your inner pin-up babe with a fun and flirty gingham print made for summer. Brigitte was a role model then, and remains one today for her staunch beliefs in animals rights. Beauty and brains, now that’s a dangerous woman.
For the professional babes on their hustle, Margaret is just what you needed to upgrade a skirt-suit with smart and cheeky T-strap, platform heels. Named after Margaret Fuller, she was an American journalist and women’s rights advocate who took the Transcendental movement by storm. Thank you, Margaret, for giving future generations of girl bosses a chance to kick ass.
