Cole Haan Celebrates "The Inspired Life" Campaign At 10 Downing

Nicola Vassel Todd Selby Harley Viera Newton Moses BerksonTodd Selby, Lynn Yaeger, Derek Blasberg, and Moses Berkson celebrated the release of Cole Haan's Spring 2010 ad campaign, "The Inspired Life" at 10 Downing yesterday, and it seems like somebody walked away with a little something special. -

DJ Harley Viera-Newton worked the turntables while the campaign's actual photographer, Todd Selby, took snapshots of the gathering, which must have been a little bit meta for everyone.

The campaign revolves around "everyday people," (who are suspiciously photogenic and talented) like Nicola Vassell, Maria Sharapova, James Bond and Johnny Knapp while they go about their everyday activities. We feel recognizing those who "jump in with both feet, who seek out the sweet spot between ambition and satisfaction" but come on -- Maria Sharapova is hardly an "everyday" person. Inspiring, yes. But everyday, not quite.
