For pre-fall 2012 Gucci creative director Frida Giannini designed a stylish, eco-friendly shoe line appropriately named Sustainable Soles as part of the company’s commitment to the efforts of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit. CFS is the world’s largest conference on sustainable fashion and corporate social responsibility.
The Italian fashion house makes going green look good in the form of ballerina flats made of biodegradable plastic for women and a sneaker style for men.
For the ladies, the Marola Green flats will be available in blush, taupe or black and feature the iconic “GG” cutout at the toe.
For the guys, the California Green sneakers come in low or hi-top with biologically certified strings and rhodium-plated metal details.
Wear Gucci and feel good about it for yourself and for the future; but not just yet as the collection won’t be available in stores or online until the end of June.
