History of Kenneth Cole Watches
Emerging from resourceful and innovative beginnings, the Kenneth Cole story is conceived with Cole proving that with a little initiative, the impossible is never impossible. After establishing the brand in 1982 as an exemplary designer of ladies shoes, the fashion house later branched out into creating successful collections of designer watches for men and women with a combination of classically styled timepieces with contemporary flourishes.
After being unable to afford to buy showroom space at New York Fashion Week, Cole was inspired to seek alternative, cheaper promotion. He had the idea to park a lorry trailer carrying the Kenneth Cole name in the heart of the festival, but had permission refused by the local authorities. Upon discovering that permission would only be granted to a film production company, Cole was inspired to change the name of his company to Kenneth Cole Productions; simultaneously garnering the publicity he needed, recording the exciting birth of the company on film (‘The Birth of a Shoe Company’) and selling forty thousand pairs of shoes in only two days!
Kenneth Cole is also known for being a brand with a conscience. With his first major advertisement campaign, Cole became the first figure within the fashion industry to promote AIDS awareness and research. With designer t-shirts bearing attention-grabbing slogans such as “I Have AIDS” and “We All Have AIDS”, Cole hoped to help eradicate the stigma attached to the disease.
Cole continued to promote his brand with socially-aware campaigns, encouraging safe sex and supporting the homeless. Today, with over 80 stores throughout the United States and with 4,500 retailers carrying his lines around the world, Kenneth Cole is a well-established brand worth in excess of $1 billion which continues to concentrate on making ladies look stunning and men look sharp.
