The socially conscious fashion house provides the chic and sleek apparel for people working to outsmart their uniform. Men, do you have the requisite patois to don the Bro-Cabulary Leather Loafer? The wise blend of palpable productivity with a mind for mind-expanding leisure to slip into the Desert Sun Suede Oxfords? If not, then why not? Is it because you're anxious for the holidays?
Never to mind. Kenneth Cole’s noir-minded holiday collection serves a selection of minimal and refined workwear. There's structured leather coats for all of you who took the red pill (Matrix much anyone?). Then there are sleek shirt and pant ensembles that provide a feminine update to the utilitarian jumpsuit. The collection sits on the line between refined workwear and polished leisure-wear.
The minimalism in the holiday collection defines this season's elevated basics, which aligns with Kenneth Cole’s most recent campaign: the Courageous Class. The inspiring campaign stars Andreja Pejic, social activist, hiphop artist Rhymefest, and Jaime Clark, who has overcome hearing impairment to become a pro soccer player. Everyman heroes celebrate humanistic triumphs as the campaign reminds the world that it's possible to "look good, for good." We're inspired. It's good to trust anyone can look so damn good while doing good for others.
