Kate Bosworth to Launch a Festival-Friendly Shoe Collection with Matisse Footwear
Kate Bosworth is stepping up her shoe game, come festival season. Literally. As the unofficial celebrity poster child for music festivals, Bosworth is no novice when it comes to co-designing festival fashion collections (see: her multiple collabs with Topshop). And now she's wielding her talent for design again with a shoe collection in partnership with Matisse Footwear.
"My intention for the collaboration was to create directional designs that are wearable," Bosworth said. "This is the type of footwear I respect and appreciate in my own wardrobe—designs that are thoughtful, exciting, and mindful of everyday wear."
Launching in Nordstrom and select retailers nationwide March 2015, the Kate Bosworth Matisse line-up (priced between $295 and $505) comprises 10 footwear styles that range from whimsical star-embellished boots (her personal fave, above) to super-sleek mules.
"We are very excited to launch our collection with Kate," said Sheena Parks, director of Matisse Footwear. "Her innate sense of trend perfectly fits into our brand aesthetic. We have created a line that is new, fresh and unapologetically cool."
Fresh and unapologetically cool indeed! With designs that echo Bosworth's personal style—an aesthetic that exudes indie cool with an off-beat edge—each Coachella-ready pair is practically tailor-made for ground-stomping fun. Other standout styles include "Hot Shot"–emblazoned boots, eccentric menswear-inspired flatform sandals, and lucite-heeled mules. Suffice to say, this collection is the perfect way to kick off festival season. Is it March yet?
