Whilst browsing through the Lady Gaga Look Book on New York Magazine's website, a fabulously chic advertisement caught my eye on the right of my screen. I thought, "Hm, a pretty blonde girl in fabulous clothes playing badminton? I simply must find out more!" Naturally, I clicked.
The "pretty blonde girl" is actually tennis ace Maria Sharapova peddling her line for Cole Haan. I am late finding out about this line simply because usually when I think about Cole Haan...well I usually do not think about Cole Haan. In my mind, Cole Haan's shoe designs are sensible. "Sensible" is not exactly a word I like to describe my shoe taste. To my surprise, Sharapova's line is a fashion forward grand slam. I simply must have a pair! (Or more then one pair...or five pairs...but who's counting?) Well played Cole Haan, well played.
