Kenneth Cole – we all walk in different shoes

I was out for a walk and saw a pair of trainers and a nice pair of . It’s amazing the things we "throw" away. Of course whoever put these out was thinking that someone would take them and give them a new life.

I’ve always liked Kenneth Cole; his advertising campaigns have always been provocative and about the other. I’ve always found the other more interesting because at some point in time, the other – the outside becomes part of the mainstream. It becomes the norm. We forget that the mainstream is always changing even though there are those who’d rather nothing changed at all. There will always be someone who tries to change something.

    Last night C made mention of her friend (read: you) who doesn’t wait on birthdays or holidays, who just gives presents out of the blue. What an “other/outside” idea!
