Who knew that so many celebrities, whether they be in the entertainment or sports industry, collaborate with designers to create an exclusive line? Well, there are lots. Which tennis superstar collaborated with Cole Haan to create a chic shoe and handbag line? Maria Sharapova. That’s right, your tall, blonde, and beautiful tennis player.
As said on the Cole Haan website, Maria’s inspiration for this Fall 2010 line was to show what she loves to wear when she’s off the court and on the go. The line entails a variety of shoes like gladiators, flats, pumps, and boots and handbags like crossbody’s, hobo’s and clutches. But what I want to focus on is Maria’s adorable ballet flats.
Coming in a variety of colors and textures like metallics, velvets, animal prints, and studs – just to name a few – Maria’s line defines street chic. My favorite ballet flats are the Estate Blue Patent flat ($99.95), the Leopard Haircalf flat ($168) and the Ironstone Suede flat ($158). Each shoe is perfect for a casual weekend with jeans or leggings or even for school or work. If you’re going to wear a flat, you might as well wear one that makes a statement.
