1. Pair of boots About 2005 London Stella McCartney Synthetics and metal Given anonymously V&A: T.79:1, 2-2012 Synthetic Materials (Object No. 1) Stella McCartney does not use leather, fur or any animal products in her designs. This pair of thigh-high boots were marketed as ‘vegan’ because they are made of a synthetic suede called ‘ultrasuede’.This innovative material frees the designer from using natural leather. However it still relies on oil-based components, which raises ecological questions.(2015)
