ATLANTA — Robert Redford and Kenneth Cole had a little fun with each other while discussing some serious issues at the second annual Kenneth Cole Leadership Forum here last week.
Cole explained his interest in social and political issues in a somewhat self-effacing way: "Nobody needs what I’m selling. There’s not a person in America who needs another tie. We all have plenty of white shirts…and surely nobody needs another pair of black shoes. So I’ve got to make this meaningful, because it isn’t, in and of itself."
