So the other day, I got an invitation via bloggie to go check out Kenneth Cole's spring '11 joint. Hmmm…never really paid much attention to the man, but I do admire his whole story. He started by selling shoes out of a trailer as a production company, it's a long story. A bunch of other bloggers and I went on uptown (read: midtown) to check it out and eat a fancy dinner.
The collection was inspired by the landscape of the desert, the mountains and the rainforest…nifty. The clothing was much what you would accept from a seasoned American designer, good pieces that will stand across seasons but nothing too forward thinking. In general, Kenneth Cole vibe is definitely more on the metropolitan side of the spectrum as opposed to your Jack Spades and Steven Alans but there were certainly a few things that caught my eye…
1. some crazy white heels that will probs make more appearances
2. the man boat shoes (which they are graciously sending as a gift, each blogger could pick a pair)
3. this electric number, good for ladies for spring
Other than the clothes, I got to meet up with some cool people that I’ve been stalking on twitter. There are loads more pictures on their facebook page, so check that out and be sure to follow them on twitter…I wouldn’t be surprised if they take very good care of their social media buddies, Mr. Cole made special note of how important they are several times in the evening.
