Kenneth Cole New York
If you enjoy attention and are looking for just the right pair of shoes or killer jeans to get it (while still looking hip and sophisticated), there is a good chance that Kenneth Cole has the perfect creation for you. Kenneth Cole designs wearable high-fashion that looks as if it could have just stepped off the runway at a New York fashion show and right onto the streets.
But don’t be intimidated by that description – this label is just as approachable as it is precocious, just as comfortable as it is lush. This is truly a brand the owner can wear to a dinner out, take in a movie, or visit with friends in, all the while feeling sophisticated.
Originally began as more of a shoe company, Kenneth returned to New York in the early 1980s after a stint in Europe with a whole lot of beautiful shoes – and no money with which to set up a shop to peddle them. It was clear that Kenneth Cole’s creativity did not stop at designing shoes; he filed for a film permit and managed to park a borrowed truck in the middle of New York City under the guise of creating a movie. In two days, Kenneth had sold about 40,000 pairs of shoes and cemented himself as a force to be reckoned with.
The Kenneth Cole name includes three lines: Kenneth Cole New York, Kenneth Cole Reaction and Unlisted Kenneth Cole. The various Kenneth Cole lines can be found at Macy*s and Nordstrom, or at one of the many stand-alone outlet stores nationwide.
