This holiday season, David Yurman takes its iconic advertising to the next level with images by celebrated photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot —the company’s first-ever campaign shot in color.

“Our objective for this campaign is to extend the language of jewelry and the expression of artistry.  We wanted the imagery and the introduction of color to evoke joy, lightness and life. It had to have a spirit of playfulness yet sophistication, and signal empowerment and confidence. The layering of jewelry and the distinct style speaks to our unconventional perspective and personality.”  said Sybil Yurman, Co-Founder, David Yurman.

In 2001, David Yurman revolutionized the jewelry and design world with a campaign featuring Peter Lindbergh‘s black and white images of supermodels—a divergence from the typical still life jewelry ads of the time. Lindbergh’s images depicted the experience of wearing jewelry as sensual and emotional, an ethos that continues in Mert and Marcus’s photographs.

Also linking past and present is Kate, the face of David Yurman for more than 10 years. Anna, captivating yet approachable, brings a playful feel to the images. The campaign ultimately reflects the unconventional artistry and imagery that distinguishes David Yurman.

Cole Haan Debuts ZerøGrand Lifestyle Collection

Cole Haan Announces A Multi-Season Collaboration With Technical Products Company Mountain Hardwear

Cole Haan, the iconic American lifestyle footwear and accessories brand and retailer, is proud to announce its newest multi-season partnership with the leaders of high-end performance apparel and gear brand, Mountain Hardwear, to create the COLE HAAN + MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR ZEROGRAND OUTERWEAR COLLECTION. This collection has been proven on the mountain and refined for the city to deliver the highest level of style, functionality and performance for the modern urban explorer.

Coinciding with the launch, Cole Haan is releasing a multi-channel campaign that embodies the inspiration behind the collaboration, “Proven on the Mountain, Refined for the City.” Shot by photographer Alan Clarke, the campaign captures real life mountaineers, Cheyne Lempe and Angie Payne, scaling iconic skyscrapers in New York’s extraordinary skyline.

The inaugural ZeroGrand Outerwear collection debuts six outerwear pieces and one backpack style. These garments provide the most premium expression of performance wear staples elevated for today’s consumer that face rigors of city living in style. Cole Haan’s dedication to Elegant Innovation and Mountain Hardwear’s commitment to empowering outdoor athletes to live boldly meet nicely in the ZeroGrand range of apparel.

This partnership is built on a common understanding of style and innovation. Our ZeroGrand footwear is the pinnacle expression of the kind of elegant innovation Cole Haan is famous for. When we wanted to marry our style sensibility with the very best in engineered garments, we went to Mountain Hardwear,” said David Maddocks, Chief Marketing Officer & GM of Business Development at Cole Haan. “Our consumers are looking for style and functionality without sacrificing one over the other. We worked together to create a revolutionary line of smart products for everyday needs,” he concluded.

The ZeroGrand Outerwear collection introduces new innovative propositions along with features and design benefits without sacrificing fashion for function. The collection utilizes the same high-performance fabrics and insulation Mountain Hardwear pioneered for the needs of mountaineers, skiers, hikers and other outdoor athletes. However, these styles are not intended for the outdoor market; these pieces have been created to meet the needs of the on-the-go city lifestyle, making them the ultimate essentials for the fall and winter season.A-Men_MH+CH_100615
Proven Mountain Hardwear technologies are found in individual styles including; Dry.Q® Stretch Ozonic(TM) shell fabric recognized for its lightweight, durable and 100% waterproof, yet breathable elements, 800-fill Q.Shield® water-resistant down that is infused with permanent water repellency to resist moisture absorption, and Thermal.Q(TM) Elite, a proprietary synthetic insulation and the warmest synthetic outerwear insulation available.
Our designers usually solve problems to save lives and maximize experience for outdoor athletes. With Cole Haan, we were presented with a different problem: how do you keep a hard-driving, fast moving urban explorer warm, dry and protected without slowing them down or asking them to compromise style,” says Robert Fry, Global Director of Product Merchandising and Design at Mountain Hardwear.

The Women’s styles include the ZeroGrand Funnel Parka, ZeroGrand Down Jacket and ZeroGrand Metro Coat and Men’s styles include the ZeroGrand Commuter Jacket, ZeroGrand Trench Coat and ZeroGrand Motoring Coat, offered in varying hues. The ZeroGrand Commuter Pack, designed for a day in the city but able to handle a weekend on the mountain, is thoughtfully crafted for everyday needs. This style includes an interior Blackout Pocket lined with a composite aluminum sheathing to prevent electronic transmission, keeping any items with a radio frequency identification chip and phones safe and unhackable. An internal and external umbrella stash and a removable waterproof bag to store dirty shoes or gym clothes further add to the utilitarian elements of this backpack. The ZeroGrand Commuter Pack is available in Titanium, Stone Green and Black.

Additionally, Cole Haan partnered with a few favorite brands that share the same dedication to functionality and innovation to develop a curated collection for the city dweller on the move. Included in this collection is the aerodynamic ZeroGrand X BLUNT(TM) XS Metro Umbrella, which effortlessly provides maximum control in rough weather conditions; the ZeroGrand X S’well® Water Bottle, which keeps drinks at preferred temperatures, and the innovative yet classic pressurized ZeroGrand X Fisher Space Pen®, inspired by astronauts that needed to write in zero gravity conditions.

Naturalizer Shoes Fall Marketing Campaign Features Real Mother and Daughter Pairs, Showcasing Style at Any Age

Naturalizer Shoes Are Designed With The Best Of Each Season’s Trend-Right Looks, Details And Materials That Women Will Love For Work, Play And Every Day.

Naturalizer captures the essence of style at any age in its new marketing campaign. The brand engaged New York-based mother and daughter pairs to show how true style transcends generations. For more than 80 years, Naturalizer has understood how truly comfortable shoes can help women move energetically through their day and live life to the fullest. Naturalizer remains committed to designing beautiful shoes that feel as good at the end of the day as they do at the beginning.

For almost 90 years, Naturalizer has celebrated the beauty and individuality of women through its commitment to delivering feminine, stylish and comfortable shoes,” said John Malpiedi, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Naturalizer. “Collaborating with real mothers and daughters was the perfect opportunity to show how Naturalizer transcends and connects generations and empowers women to express their unique sense of style.

Naturalizer is honored to feature the special bond between mother and daughter in this campaign, as seen through the Durso, Sambucini and Baker families. Each family styled a different Naturalizer shoe – with mother and daughter adding their own twist – showcasing the timeless appeal of Naturalizer’s collection. The ladies also shared sweet reflections about their relationship and style, including:

  • Mother, Marilyn Durso: Being part of the Naturalizer campaign opened my eyes to the joy of relating to each other in such a personal way. Fashion and style can be another language between us now.
  • Daughter, Jill Durso: My mother’s style has influenced mine quite literally in that I steal her clothes and shoes all the time! I don’t think I’ve purchased formal wear in a decade. Her wardrobe is ageless so it’s easy to mix and match things from each of our closets.

    Johanna & Johanny Sambucini wearing the Naturalizer Maureen (PRNewsFoto/Caleres, Inc.)

  • Daughter, Johanna Sambucini: Naturalizer shoes are very stylish, comfortable and feature quality workmanship. These are things both my mother and I look for in a pair of shoes. I love the fact that we can both look good wearing Naturalizer shoes, no matter how old we are.
  • Mother, Martha Baker: As my daughters were growing up, I advised them to choose classic pieces over trendy pieces, and discover a style that really highlighted their personality and worked for their body type.
  • Daughters, Hannah and Emily Baker: We have always appreciated our mom’s ability to keep things classic while adding an unexpected accent piece to her look – such as statement jewelry or a funky hat.

Naturalizer is still one of the few brands in the marketplace that women can turn to for hard-to-find sizes and widths, and wide shaft boots, because we believe that shoes can only be comfortable when they are a perfect fit. Today, Naturalizer is inspiring women to live their lives and love their shoes in 60 countries around the world.

Eddie Bauer Limited Edition by Ilaria Urbinati Collection Now Available

This past week, Eddie Bauer announced the launch of the highly anticipated Eddie Bauer Limited Edition by Ilaria Urbinati collection. Designed by the leading fashion stylist, the collection is marked by uncompromising quality, value and performance with a nod to Eddie Bauer‘s iconic heritage and styling rooted in the outdoors. The collection is now available at select Eddie Bauer and Nordstrom stores as well as online at and

Ilaria Urbinati has an extensive background in the fashion industry and is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after stylists today. She began her career as a buyer at some of Los Angeles’ top fashion boutiques before opening her own store in 2008 called Confederacy, which catered to many prominent celebrities and musicians. There she collaborated with Albert Hammond, Jr. of The Strokes on a limited edition line of suits that were most notably worn by Ryan Gosling in Crazy Stupid Love. Urbinati has become renowned for her ability to style clients with distinction while taking into consideration their personality, body type and desire for timeless quality. She has since collaborated with many top designers, including Gucci and Ferragamo, on custom designs for her clientele. By 2014, she was listed as one of the top “25 Power Stylists” by The Hollywood Reporter, dressing leading men such as Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck, James Marsden and Ryan Reynolds for red carpet and press events.

I’m known more as a men’s stylist than a women’s stylist, and I think part of the reason for that is I don’t go for a lot of bells and whistles. I really aim for a timeless, iconic look. I look to guys like Paul Newman and Marlon Brando and Steve McQueen. Fifty years from now, their photos will still feel modern and current” said Urbinati. “I try and adhere to that ethic with my clients now, and make sure they look timeless and masculine. I think sometimes people feel when they’re styling that the result has to look styled. But I actually try and make it look like I wasn’t there. My favorite book is The Fountainhead, which always talks about how, in a home, every single piece should have a purpose. I think of clothes in that way. I don’t like random tabs and things that are there just for the sake of being cute or something. Especially with menswear, I like the idea of everything having a little bit of a purpose.

1936 Modified Skyliner Bomber Jacket, Eddie Bauer Limited Edition by Ilaria Urbinati (PRNewsFoto/Eddie Bauer)

One thing I’ve heard a few times is that they [my male clients] all look like themselves,” she continues. “like individuals. They don’t look like a stylist dressed them. I really try and bring out their personality. Some of them are preppier, some are more rugged, and some are more elegant. It’s all different. I want to make sure that they always feel like they look like themselves.

The limited edition collection features a full suite of outerwear, apparel, accessories and gear and fuses modern style and fit with iconic Eddie Bauer heritage to create the ultimate sportswear line, marked by uncompromising quality, value, and performance. Anchored by modern updates to classic Eddie Bauer pieces, Urbinati has created a collection for the modern adventurer. New styles include a modern interpretation of Eddie Bauer’s 1936 Skyliner Jacket and 1953 Kara Koram Down Parka, as well as Fair Isle sweaters, buffalo-check flannel shirts, and chino pants with a custom-designed camouflage print using the brand’s iconic goose logo.

The hero product for the collection is a modern interpretation of Eddie Bauer’s 1936 Skyliner Jacket – the first down jacket to be patented in America. Fusing contemporary style and fit, the 1936 Modified Skyliner Bomber Jacket features 700 fill Premium Goose Down, a DWR finish to shed moisture, quilted stich detailing and a rib-knit collar, cuff, and hem. Other noteworthy styles include the Modified Kara Koram Down Parka, Deer Valley Fair Isle Cardigan, Woodhacker Heavy Twill Shirt-Jacket, and the Arrowhead Modern Slim Chino Pants featuring a custom Eddie Bauer goose camouflage.Men's Modified Kara Koram Down Parka

What drew her to the timeless character of the Eddie Bauer brand?I think because I’m from Europe, I have a “grass is greener thing” about America being great. So I’ve always been really drawn to Americana and the timeless all-American appeal. When I sat down with my team to talk about my next step, I thought about a men’s collaboration. They asked me for a list and the first one on my list was Eddie Bauer. I wanted a brand that had heritage that was all-American, that was iconic, but that needed a little bit of sprucing up for a younger, more hip clientele—a little more tailored. I loved the heritage of Eddie, the history of Eddie. I felt like we could bring that to a cool young guy.

We are excited to partner with Ilaria on this collection. We hold a high level of respect for what she has accomplished both in her career and with this capsule collection,” said Mike Egeck, Chief Executive Officer for Eddie Bauer. “Ilaria came into the partnership with a strong appreciation for Eddie Bauer’s heritage. Together, we were able to create a timeless collection that represents the modern outdoorsman.”

How do you see this line evolving?I would love to do another collection again. I hope that this sells out and we do another one. There have been rumors, whispers, of maybe adding a women’s collection at some point, which would also be really fun. I’d love to do a women’s line as well, and to be able to do both would be fun. But I definitely hope to do more. And keep evolving the line—seeing what the customer response is and keeping an ear out for needs and wants. The collection is really styled the way I see the pieces being put together, and the collection is designed for every piece to work together. It actually made the styling for the launch event at Sundance hard because there were so many options of how things could have gone together. Ideally, you should be able to buy a few pieces and they all work together.

The limited edition collection joins Eddie Bauer’s premium product series including award-winning technical outerwear and gear from First Ascent, active wear from Motion, field apparel and gear from Sport Shop, travel-ready apparel from Travex, and active lifestyle apparel.
