After launching with a strong Dallas presence in 2012, The Office of Angela Scott racked up accolades and adoring fans faster than you can lace up a pair of Italian leather Oxfords. From the FGI Dallas Rising Star Award, to a nod from Julia Roberts on Ellen, designer Angela Scott’s “luxury punk” footwear piled on the praise. Today’s news gives yet another reason to love the brand.
Scott’s shoes combine unique details with impeccable craftsmanship. They represent the antithesis of disposable, fast-fashion footwear. Inspired by her Grandfather, the designer describes his influence as, “a symbol of strength and love, fashion and character, the four corners of where my style originated.” Brand-new from The Office of Angela Scott, a collaboration with EKOCYCLE includes sustainable styles for both him and her.
The EKOCYCLE project represents a dynamic duo: legendary recording artist will.i.am and The Coca-Cola Company. Through partnerships with various labels, the effort produces an array of fashionable and eco-friendly items. Each collaboration furthers will.i.am’s personal mission to “educate and inspire consumers around the globe to seek out more sustainable choices for lifestyle products.”
Adding up all of the above for a stylish sum, EKOCYCLE + The Office of Angela Scott comprises capsule collections for men and women. Each shoe’s upper and presentation bag are made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials. In fact, billed “from bottles to brogues” the kicks boast an average of one recycled 20-ounce soda bottle per pair. We’ll toast to that!
