“Uptown Rock You Up” – Downtown Style
Rockport debuted its Fall/Winter 2015 collection to top media in NYC last Thursday at the Electric Room located in the Dream Downtown. Editors, bloggers and stylists gathered in the 1960s Brit rock-inspired lounge to learn about Rockport’s newest line, and a little bit about mixology.
NYC’s Liquid Lab mixologists, cutting age craft cocktail makers, were on top of their libations game. Recipes for two custom drinks were taught and stirred – the sweet and spicy “Uptown Rock You Up” and the cool, refreshing “On the Rocksport.” Editors listened in, self-made sips in hand, to casual presentations about the collection.
But the crux of the evening was more than the custom cocktails – it was the killer kicks! With a fresh drink to cap their workdays, the attendees were able to mingle, drooling not only over their one-of-a-kind Rockport cocktails, but also over the gorgeous footwear that makes up the Fall 2015 line.
Rockport’s FW15 footwear epitomizes the look of the casual, urban-influenced gal or guy who refuses to compromise style for the necessary comfort of a great shoe. And with editors from Marie Claire, Lucky, Complex, Allure, and more, the night saw no shortage of style.
