Kate Bosworth's latest fashion collaboration is a 10-piece line of footwear with Matisse. The collection will include everything from boots and sandals to clogs and mules.
“The truth is, shoes have to be wearable and functional,” she told WWD. “There are some women who wear 7-inch stilettos and run around. That’s not me. That’s not the collection. I want to feel comfortable and also very fashionable in my life.”
Bosworth has embedded inspiration from her own life into the collection. A surf-inspired shoe is an homage to one of her breakout film, Blue Crush. A blue ankle booth adorned with silver stars pays tribute to her friend Charlotte Hones Anderson, whose family owns the Dallas Cowboys. As an art fan, she designed shiny white ankle boots to pay tribute to a lithograph by Ed Ruscha titled "Hot Shot."
“For me, it’s important to translate a feeling when I design a shoe and the woman I think of,” Bosworth said. “They can transition you from a work environment like in my own life to a cool cocktail event. They’re directional enough that they stand alone as a fashion piece. They’re comfortable enough that you can wear them around all day.”
Bosworth's footwear collection with Matisse will be available next spring. Prices for this capsule collection will range quite high at $300 to $500 a pair. Check out a preview of the collection here.
