Feel Good Friday- Cole Haan & Friends

With Black Friday just a week away, it’s time to get shopping for the season and nothing makes us feel better about letting those Benjamin’s fly than when there is a good cause and craftsmanship involved.

Cole Haan partnered with up-and-coming fresh faces of today who are making good things happen to highlight what they are giving, getting and giddy about for the holidays. The Talented & Gifted campaign, lensed by Jake Chessum and styled by Joanne Blades, features Unlocking the Truth, a talented heavy metal band made up of three 7th Graders; filmmaker, dancer and choreographer Celia Rowlson-Hall alongside Broadway actor, Gregory Haney; Edward Song, owner and founder of the food truck Korilla BBQ which has reached cult­-status; young luminary Tavi Gevinson, founder and editor in chief of Rookie Magazine; actress and award-­‐winning playwright Danai Gurira; and coffee entrepreneur Cesar Vega of Café Integral. As you can see from the images, it is quite the cast of characters.
