For the Fashionista: Cole Haan’s Sporting collection

NEW YORK, May 6, 2009 / FW/ — Flowers are always great for Mother’s Day, yet it is also good to give Mom something that she can wear the whole year round. Check out Cole Haan’s offerings that are perfect for the fashionista, the athlete, the Bag Lady and the environmentalist moms.

With Tennis Champion Maria Sharapova as the face of the collection- the new styles appeal to women who value function and performance, as well as a fashion forward sensibility. I hope you will keep the below items in mind for any upcoming Mother’s Day features:

For the Fashionista:

Cole Haan’s Sporting collection includes a variety of shoes that go from day to evening. Sandals and heels prove that pain is not in fact beauty, and are available in an array of vibrant colors and exotic materials, as well as in subdued tones in classic patent leather. The overall theme is stylish comfort whether one is at a dinner party or poolside.

For the Athlete:


Nike Flywire Technology, introduced at the 2008 Beijing Olympics has revolutionized the way women can look while they work out. Instead of bulky sneakers, the Sporting collection offers sleek, pared down designs for an improved performance.

For the Bag Lady:

Fashionistas will covet Cole Haan’s elegant handbag line. The Totes and satchels embody Cole Haan’s 80-year commitment to craftsmanship. Ladies who lunch will prefer the Raleigh Triangle Tote, while the Biscayne tote is perfect for a day at the beach. The emphasis is on a functional interior- and a playfully refined exterior.

For the Environmentalist:

Cole Haan’s ‘Dylan’ accessories collection offers a range of unisex silhouettes including a duffle, and tote. Made from Bionic yarn, a fiber made from recycled plastic bottles, each bag is enhanced by a vegetable chrome free leather trim. These accessories are not just for hemp wearing individuals- but actually are a fashionable option for those seeking an eco-friendly choice.
