You’ve for sure seen this video already but I can’t stop watching it after having seen it at the New York premiere. Stuart Weitzman debuted their newest fashion film called “Made for Walking” starring Kate Moss, the face of the brand’s Fall 2013 campaign.
Shot in central London, Moss sets loose from a traffic jam (something I’ve contemplated doing time and time again) and walks to her destination with Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made for Walking” playing in the background because, duh. For their Fall 2013 collection, Stuart Weitzman unveiled a new collection boots – as seen in the video – that are comfortable and stylish (even if you’re left staring at your closet wondering how to pull off thigh high boots). This fall the brand is also celebrating 20 years with their classic over the knee, 5050 boot. Huzzah!
If you’re feelin’ lucky, enter the #MadeForWalking contest where you can enter to win some amazing prizes like a $750 gift card or a two night trip to New York City, a champagne tour of the Stuart Weitzman showroom and $1500 shoe wardrobe.
FTC Disclosure: I attended the press preview and received a pair of boots as a thank you.
There are several things that I must bring to your attention from the photo above:
My new growth is something wicked. I relaxed my hair last month yet SOMEHOW I’m already seeing new growth and curly roots. No one told me just how high maintenance short, relaxed hair would be when I chopped it all off
They’re not mine – I stole them from Sarah for about 30 minutes after falling in love and demanding that she hand them over. They’re the Kennedy: Clear by Grey Ant and I’m in love. I want/ need them in my lifestyle and I’m contemplating bribery. Sarah, are you listening? A quick browse on their website also led me to wanting/needing the Status: Tortoise sunglasses as well because I love an exaggerated anything and do you see the size of those things?!
On a rare off day, I ventured on down to meet up with the SKAGEN DENMARK team to take a gander at what’s new for spring and what to expect for autumn.
Skagen Denmark – men’s
For the uninitiated, SKAGEN DENMARK is a Danish lifestyle brand that offers high quality products at an affordable price point. You probably know them for their watches – simple yet refined. They’re classic pieces that aren’t definied by trends while at the same time remaining quite modern. While they may be known for watches, I fell head over heels over the jewelry collection.
For Autumn/Winter 2013, the brand’s Perspektiv collection features a new take on Danish design through flawless, delicate details and innovative materials. Gorgeous pendants that have a hint of sparkle when it hits the light allow for interchangeable necklaces (you pick between a soft leather or steel chain. Along with the pendants were beautiful rose gold rings which – admittedly – captured my heart and will be mine come Fall.
As with jewelry, the women’s Perspektiv watch collection is pretty neat and consists of high-quality genuine leather straps in pebble grey, dark brown, camel and burgundy. The watches are slim but not too delicate. The Klassik collection (the watches you see above towards the left) are just that – classic pieces by the brand.
For some people, doing good seems to come natural. It’s inherently part of their DNA and any chance to give back is taken. One such woman whom I’ve admired for that reason alone is designer Rachel Roy, who has over the years raised awareness and funds to support Ghana, Haiti, and Japan.
Last year during her travels to India (a trip Rachel called “emotional”), she worked with local artisans to create the FEED India bag.
The best part of the initiative is that each FEED India bag ($78) sold will provide 100 meals to hungry school children in India. I’ve been a longtime supporter of FEED because each collaboration is beyond looking cute for a cause. It’s about helping to fight hunger and eliminate malnutrition throughout the world. The FEED India bag is available in two colors online, so hop to it!
Event alert! If you’re in the NYC area, Rachel and Lauren Bush (founder of FEED Projects) are going to be at Bloomingdale’s on 59th for a special shopping event. Details below!
