Kenneth Cole

Kenneth Cole has long been the king of social advertising. His ads have always had a way of appealing to both our hearts and pocketbooks. His latest campaign, "We all walk in different shoes." may be one of his best yet as it showcases the value of both design and diversity. One of the featured individuals is Matisyahu, a Hasidic reggae and rap musician that has taken the world by storm with his outstanding music and great attitude towards life. Kenneth Cole has been an outspoken activist in areas such as HIV/AIDS, human rights, homelessness, and the environment. He even has a blog now in the social activism stream - AWEARNESS. The only thing I'd like to see more of is sustainability elements entering their product, such as organic cotton, bamboo, etc. I was able to find some bamboo blend items on the website, but for someone who is so outspoken, I believe it's important that he walk his talk.
