Lucchese, the 135-year-old luxury cowboy boot company, has tapped model-turned-designer Erin Wasson to help bridge the high-fashion gap in the burgeoning boot business.
By linking with the Texas-born Wasson, who combined being in front of the camera with creating product 10 years ago, the Texas-based brand founded by Italian immigrant Salvatore Lucchese, hopes to up its women’s market share and break into specialty retailers such as Maxfield and A’maree’s by adding Wasson’s high-fashion spin and tapping into the bootie category.

Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for years for customers, friends, family — and herself for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
