Sprightly Natalie Portman debuted her line of upscale vegan shoes at Te Casan in SoHo Tuesday night, and to gauge by gushing potential customers and fashion-forward supporters like Paper magazine’s Mickey Boardman, the line appears to be a tremendous success. Even if the women enjoying the preview didn’t quite know how to express it.
“They look wearable, right?” a woman said cryptically while slipping her French-manicured toes into a pair. Nearby, beside a neatly designed display, a woman from W magazine noted, “I’m psyched. I’ve been looking for vegan shoes as well.” Another, clutching a full glass of red wine, commented, “They look like people could walk in them.” Mission, we say, accomplished?
