Dree Hemingway and Cole Haan announce collaboration

Posted on

Cole Haan has announced a “multiyear partnership” with the great-granddaughter of the American literary icon Ernest Hemingway. 

“Dree is timeless and individualistic. Her curiosity and creativity are infectious. She is the perfect muse for the times. I am delighted to be working with her to create accessories that capture her beauty and grace,” explained Cole Haan Global Creative Director Walker MacWilliam.

Dree will become the face of the brand for the Fall-Winter 2014 campaign and onwards and will also help to design a signature line of bags and shoes. The appointment is designed to help raise the profile of the company as Cole Haan grows its existing presence in Hong Kong, Japan and the Middle East. New locations will also appear in China, South Korea and Mexico in fall 2014. 

“Cole Haan is an iconic American brand with a rich heritage of classic pieces for everyday” said Dree. “I’m excited to bring my personal aesthetic, mind and ideas to this partnership and to be actively involved in the creative process. I really look forward to working with Walker and to bring my quirky personal style to this project while discovering new ideas together.” 

Hemingway studied at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art before signing up as a model with DNA Model Management. After an explosive start to her career, shooting various high profile editorials and campaigns for brands, she is currently the face of Paco Rabanne’s Lady Million fragrance. She will also appear next year in director Noah Baumbach’s movie “While We’re Young” alongside Ben Stiller and Amanda Seyfried.
