Resonant with rural imagery, the Cole Haan autumn/winter campaign, my favourite this season, reconstructs a down-to-earth and down-on-the-farm feel that seems to appeal to more and more people who are looking for a simpler and more relaxed way of life, myself included. Dree Hemingway is the face of the campaign, the brand’s global ambassador and collaborator on their fall premium collection, Cole Haan for Dree Hemingway.
It would be difficult to find someone better than Dree, given not only her lineage, but also her sense of style – feminine with a hint of masculine touch, simple but with an adventurous feel – to represent the essence of classic American style. The story captured here takes place in Sun Valley, in the mountains of Idaho, Dree’s home, “somewhere where you can really breathe”, she says. The collection features a beautiful fall wardrobe in neutral, coordinating tones, evoking the natural colour palette of the great outdoors and autumnal mountain escapes.
