Must-Splurge: Jen Brill and Olivia Kim of Opening Ceremony’s Cole Haan Chelsea Pump Capsule Collection

If you have a predilection for downtown style, you probably know and love Jen Brill and Olivia Kim. The “It” girls are staples at every fashion party in NYC and the world over and with Brill’s to-die-for Chanel collection and Kim’s post as VP of Creative at Opening Ceremony, you can pretty much guess that their closets are treasure chests.

The two are now designing a capsule collection for classic brand Cole Haan, putting cool twists on the Chelsea Pump.

“It’s definitely a collection we feel will be exciting to a youthful, creative audience. Maybe when you first hear about it, it’s a little unexpected, but when you see the collection, it feels authentically Cole Haan through a modern New York City perspective.” – Cole Haan Creative Director, Phil Russo

Three styles will be featured in the capsule collection: the above heeled desert boot, a colorblock strappy sandal and a peep-toe sandal.

Jen Brill and Olivia Kim’s Cole Haan Chelsea Pump Capsule Collection will be available on September 10th, just in time for New York Fashion Week, with prices ranging from $528 for the sandal styles to $548 for the boots. Visit and for more information.
