Longtime vegan Natalie, who until now only wore shoes from Target or Stella McCartney, has finally found a way to expand her collection.
As I revealed a couple weeks ago, she designed a cruelty-free line of shoes with retailer Té Casan. One hundred percent of the proceeds are set to benefit The Nature Conservancy, and the shoes can be ordered from TeCasan.com starting Tuesday, Jan. 15!

Now here's a celebrity designer foray that sounds promising. Hollywood sweetheart and vegetarian Natalie Portman will design a collection for New York shoe boutique Te Casan. If this red patent shoe is an indicator of the look and feel of her collection, sign me up. Speaking of, pre-orders can be placed January 15 and the collection is due out in February. Sign up for Te Casan's email list to stay in the know. Oh, and did I mention prices will be around that $200 soft spot?
The amazing three level Té Casan shoe store has just opened in NYC's posh Soho shopping area. This incredible 7,500 square feet mecca houses its own brand of high end (more) affordable footwear as well as a tea bar.
Té Casan means "a woman's path" in Gaelic and the store is intended to be a place of solace for women shopping for luxury shoes. It seems to be just that; what shoe store do you know offers dressing rooms or "fitting booths" for additional privacy?
The shoes are created by a team of seven highly skilled and mostly Spanish designers (pictured) who have experience from well known fashion houses such as: Versace, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana and Dries Van Noten.
What's unique about Té Casan shoes is all of them are considered collectors items since they are only available as limited editions. All you NYC gals out there: visit the new store at 382 West Broadway (across the street from Downtown Cipriani) where new shoes are debuted weekly and let us know what you think! View my gallery of faves below, these range from $160-$385, and can be ordered via phone, 1-877-TECASAN.
