Timberland x Nadege Winter x TRAID

I must be forgiven for thinking of Timberland and its image as dated as its cleary not.  After all I was pleasantly surprised when I visited Timberland’s press breakfast here, cherishing the snowboots and technical watches and accessories.

And now, with the recent assistance of ‘Unaplogetic’ star Rihanna wearing a classic pair of Timberland boots, the brand has once again been catapulted to the forefront of mainstream fashion, allowing me to feel much more comfortable wearing a pair; Afterall, the ‘ghetto’ fabulous look is not only making a comeback (referencing Rihanna & Rita Ora) but its a look easily pulled off at a young age, which thankfully I still am.

Resting at nothing, Timberland has an exciting new collaboration arriving in outlets and Timberland stores across the continent.

Teaming up with UK charity TRAID and Nadege Winter, the three masterminds have just released a gorgeous line of limited edition yellow classic boots fused with the light hearted mix of fashion, design and urban eco-awareness

Citing Chloe Sevigne & Azealia Banks as her inspirations; style icon Nadege Winter says of the challenge “My ambition was to make these boots lighter without changing their original work-wear design, which I like so much. This was a difficult challenge that was met thanks to the ingenuity of Timberland’s designers who replaced the original sole with a new greener version they developed from natural rubber tree milk”

What are your thoughts on the new designs, Would you wear it and if so, teamed with what?

    "catapulted to the forefront of mainstream fashion"? $1.6 billion pound turnover isn't considered 'mainstream'? Wow.

    Dear Anonymous Commentator, Thank you for your insight, for reading this post and passing by my 'personal blog'
    In my opinion, I personally do not consider Timberland as mainstream fashion but hey, we are all entitled to our own opinion with or without quotes on sales & turnover.
