Topshop has just launched a vegan shoe collection

Vegan fashion has never been so chic. Need proof? Just check out Topshop's first foray into vegan footwear, which is available to shop now.

The range is the minimalist dream, comprising of six timeless styles in a neutral palette of snakes, croc, nude, toffee, orange, black and white.

I'm particularly big on the REYA brown toe-loop sandals and the REID strappy sandals in both black and cream (you can shop more of my favourites below).

All the styles are versatile enough to be worn with anything, though I'd keep it chic and neutral with a linen jumpsuit or a satin slip dress in browns or beiges.

The collection is PETA-approved, and handmade in Spain, from materials that are free from animal products, plus each pair of shoes will be packaged in a box assembled using 100% non-animal and non-fish glue.

Maddy Evans, Fashion Director at Topshop says, 'Initially we’re focusing on footwear and introducing six new styles that are produced alongside our premium shoe lines in Spain. We can’t wait to see how shoppers respond to the design-led collection and how far we can push vegan products across our accessories offering.'

Does this mean we can expect a vegan handbag range next? Here's hoping.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
