This just in, international tennis sensation Maria Sharapova will serve as the face of Cole Haan‘s Spring 2009 ad campaign. The images were shot in Malibu, California by internationally acclaimed lifestyle photographer Martyn Thompson, the campaign reflects the interplay of style and sport, passion and play, that Cole Haan and Sharapova share. The weave of traditional craftsmanship and high-performance innovation that embodies the Cole Haan-Nike partnership finds new expression in Spring. Back in December I’ve already seen the spring collection at the showroom, there are some great things coming.
“The campaign marks the first time Cole Haan has collaborated with a Nike athlete to serve as the face of a new collection,” notes Cole Haan Chief Marketing Officer Michael Capiraso. “We are able to leverage her interest in fashion and sport, while connecting with our consumer in a new and unique way”.
