Kenneth Cole was established in 1982 as a footwear brand with some pretty big ideas. Today the label has expanded into a number of highly successful clothing lines for men and women and is a global name in contemporary fashion. The brand aesthetic is modern and urban and the different lines offer everything from directional leather sneakers through to sleek tailoring and accessories such as watches. functionality and practicality remain at the heart of the designs but this is always cleverly combined with a good looking aesthetic and a focus on the use of quality fabrics and cuts. The beach wear line from the brand includes a wide range of once pieces, from push up, cut-out monokinis through to bright printed styles.
