The Sam Edelman Spring 2014 ad campaign may be set in a natural and sunny beach surrounding, but it has been given an edgy vibe thanks to the leather outfit the footwear is complemented by. As though made for the summer biker, a camo sandal and strappy gold one are paired with a leather vest and matching studded shorts.
Shot by photographer Craig McDean, the Sam Edelman Spring 2014 ad campaign stars model Kate Upton. The designer says, "Kate is the model of the moment, and I’m thrilled to have her as the face of the brand again. The Sam Girl is aspirational and knows all the latest trends, whether it’s fashion, the newest workout or hottest models. They all want to look like Kate.” And why wouldn't they want her casual chic style?
