Catherine Zeta-Jones has teamed up with bosses at British footwear brand Butterfly Twists to create a new vegan shoe line.

The 10-piece collection has been launched via the Oscar-winning actress’ lifestyle brand, Casa Zeta-Jones, and will serve as Catherine’s first expansion into footwear.

The Welsh-born star has been creating the line over the last year, and each of the soft-soled pumps is made entirely from animal-friendly leather.

“I’ve always had a passion for fashion,” she said in a statement launching the new venture. “I learned to sew from my nana and my mam and was always designing and creating something new. Shoes are a natural extension of that, and something I’ve always wanted to design.

“I love their (Butterfly Kisses) brand and knew I could collaborate with them on something really fresh and different. They are global, virtually in every country, and that was also important to me, so Casa Zeta-Jones could have a far and expansive reach to women everywhere.”

And when the Chicago star told husband Michael Douglas about the project, he asked her how many pairs of shoes do women need.

“My answer is, ‘Are there ever enough?’ Like every woman I love shoes! Flats, heels, sneakers I love them all!” Catherine added.

The star was also impressed by Butterfly Twists’ approach to eco-friendly fashion.

“Vegan materials are so advanced and luxurious now it is difficult to tell the difference between real leather and vegan leather. I know that it’s an important consideration for many women and I’m happy I can create something that is sustainable without sacrificing style,” she shared.

Casa Zeta-Jones x Butterfly Twists, priced from $71 (£60) is available online now at casazetajones.com.
