Maya Angelou, and all of her greatness, appear in the new shoe campaign for Cole Haan. The legendary writer and iconic poet serves as the brand’s muse for the celebration of its 85-year history.
The campaign, titled “Born in 1928,” features individual portraits of writer Maya Angelou, photographer Elliott Erwitt, astronaut Jim Lovell and model China Machado, all of whom are 85 years old, with the exception of Machado, who is 84. The four luminaries were each given a customized Cole Haan shoes for their shoot, from tall riding boots to wedged booties.
Debuting in Cole Haan’s stores on September 3rd, the campaign also has a video that we’re dying to see.
