Long-time vegan actress and pin-up Pamela Anderson — who has dabbled in design in the past — has two new fashion projects on the horizon. Both involve accessories and both are 100 percent animal cruelty-free.
The first is a collaboration with French designer Amelie Pichard, who posted a photo to social media on Thursday of a signed vintage Playboy with Anderson on the cover and revealed that their joint collection will be available in December. According to WWD, Anderson met Pichard through Instagram and together they have designed seven heels and pumps and one beach bag made exclusively from plastic, cottons, acrylics and rubbers. The prices will range from $490 to $950. As of now, the collaboration will be available exclusively at Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles and Colette in Paris, and Montreal-based Ssense will pick it up in January. WWD also reports that Anderson will star in a campaign for the line shot by David LaChapelle, who has plenty of experience photographing her wearing accessories and not much else.
For those looking for a more casual animal-friendly shoe option, Anderson also has you covered. On Tuesday, a website for her new line of Ugg-style beach booties went live at PammiesLife.com, featuring three styles made from recycled electronics. "This is my passion — to get a pair of these on everybody who enjoys the beach lifestyle and everyone who enjoys the comfyness [sic] of slipping on something easy and warm to bring their dogs to the beach or anywhere outdoors," she wrote in a note on the site.
According to People StyleWatch, Anderson said she felt used by Ugg Australia to promote its famous boots when they were first released because she disagreed with how animals were treated in the production process. "That was the beginning of my animal activism career, and since then I've been trying to create an alternative," she told StyleWatch. The Pammies boots will be available online in October and at Ron Robinson boutiques in Los Angeles in November.
