Cole Haan x Maria Sharapova: Fall Launch & FNO Details!

Cole Haan x Maria Sharapova Fall 2011 Collection

Cole Haan and Maria Sharapova are back with a to-die-for fall collection! The collaboration, in its fifth season, has loads to offer to the consumer. You can expect a collection of heels, booties, ballerina flats, and a slew of handbags in a clean color palette of bordeaux, dove grey, and black. A few weeks back, the Cole Haan team threw a launch party at their SoHo store, hosted by Maria Sharapova. The invite-only crowd had the opportunity to preview the collection, as well as the special edition Air Bacara ballets, before they hit the stores on September 8th.

The Air Bacara ballet, which Maria notes as being one of her favorite styles in the collection, is being served up in “Day” and “Night” colorways to match Maria’s tennis outfits for the US Open. The “day ballet” is constructed in a feather grey perforated leather, with neon pink insole, and the “night ballet” is offered in a black perforated suede, with neon yellow insole. Both styles appeal to the transition from day to night wear, as well as the feminine and edgy sides that encompass all women.
