Back when I was in Junior High, Cole Haan loafers were a must-have if you wanted to be considered stylish. The loafer has come a long (yes, I am aware that I am aging myself) way and so has the iconic brand that’s celebrating its 80th anniversary this fall. To commemorate it, Cole Haan has released limited-edition Anniversay Collection creations, including the Penny Air High Moccasin, the Saddle Denney Bag, and limited-edition jewelry in collaboration with acclaimed jewelry designer Anna Sheffield (Marc Jacobs and Phillip Lim have called on her to create baubles for their runway shows). The collection takes its lead from the designer’s signature penny keepsakes, created to adorn Cole Haan’s anniversary penny loafer collection. The assortment of charm bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and cufflinks are available at the Cole Haan boutique in Highland Park Village. Cole Haan’s Design Director, Paul Overfield, and jewelry designer Anna Sheffield are in town this evening for a special in-store event.
Highland Park Village welcomes new tenants, Follain closes its Knox storefront, and celeb-founded jewelry line Uncommon James announces a Deep Ellum location.
