Bourgeois Boheme – Oliver Pinatex
Oliver is the AW 17 men’s vegan Winter boot. With a sleek, fuss-free upper, Oliver is smarter, than the average Winter boot but more robust than a Chelsea, referencing unisex, trans-seasonal Scandinavian style.
Ethically made in Portugal from Pinatex (derived from pineapple)
Long term vegan Alicia Lai is the founder of London based footwear brand Bourgeois Boheme which makes state of the art luxury shoes for men and women completely free from animal-derived materials. As an ex Podiatrist, Alicia decided to develop her expertise in footsore and bring her vegan values together with luxury animal free footwear. From the beginning she was intent on keeping the brand true to its ethos and to remain independent whilst creating chic, high quality vegan shoes. Today 12 years later Alicia remains true to her founding ethos, has developed a strong celebrity fan base and recently launched the brand in the USA.
Since its inception Bourgeois Boheme set out to redefine “leather-free” footwear and has done just that by making a name for itself as a leading non-leather footwear brand in the mainstream fashion world becoming renowned for its stylish androgynous footwear designs. The shoes are designed and produced in Portugal with local artisans using the finest eco friendly vegan leathers.
Drawing inspiration from traditional British shoemaking and futuristic, sustainably engineered design, Bourgeois Boheme’s AW17 collection perfectly fuses the classic and the innovative in a tightly knitted range of undated trans-seasonal staples and covetable styles of now. Material innovation plays a key role as the all-vegan brand continues their search for advanced leather alternatives. Alongside BB’s signature breathable eco vegan leather, the collection is made with some of the most progressive new fabrics and components, including, Ecotone, Bio-Polyolls, Pinatex and Cork.
