Harrys of London is gearing up for holiday shopping. Synonymous with innovative design, high quality manufacturing and modern style, Harrys of London is a quintessentially British contemporary brand. When the iconic brand was conceived in London in 2001 by Matthew Mellon, the purpose was to create ‘shoes that feel like sneakers,’ and the business defined a new category.
The Harrys of London concept started with the elegant, sporty lines and unique sole of the popular DOWNING loafer, followed by the soft, unstructured Basel moccasin. These styles which we now refer to as ‘the iconics’ were instantly popular and became the benchmark for everything that followed. Today the brand continues to deliver the ultimate wearing experience for men who do not wish to sacrifice style for comfort and vice versa.
New this season, Harrys of London is introducing Harrys For Her, the new women’s shoe line. Just like the men’s shoes, Harrys For Her are made with Harrys of London signature Technogel innersole, which is covered in gel-filled capsules that mold to the shape of your foot, reliving pressure and providing a one-of-a-kind fit.

And on a giving back note, Cotton Incorporated’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program has recently announced its first ever Denim Stack Challenge, a national awareness initiative in honor of America Recycles Day. The #DenimStackChallenge invites consumers across the country to inventory their own closets, snap and share a picture of their denim, and give those items they no longer wear new life by recycling them.
According to Cotton Incorporated’s 2019 Lifestyle Monitor™ Survey, the average American owns 6 pairs of jeans and 10 pieces of denim. Every year, millions of tons of textile waste are discarded in landfills, but it doesn’t have to be that way for all unwanted garments. Because authentic denim is made mostly from cotton, a sustainable fiber, it can be broken down to its natural state and transformed into something new. Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program collects denim that might otherwise be thrown away and upcycles it into natural cotton fiber insulation, in turn a portion is distributed to organizations to help building efforts across the country. By diverting denim waste from landfills and assisting in building efforts, the program helps to close the loop on cotton sustainability.
On November 17, Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program is excited to work with Claudine DeSola, founder of Caravan Stylist Studio, and influencers Libby Vilner (@lifewithlibby) and Lara Eurdolian (@prettyconnected) on a sustainable fashion and beauty pop-up event. Taking place in the lobby of The Gregory Hotel from 1 – 6 p.m., the event invites attendees to sustainably sell and repurpose their unwanted new and gently used clothing and accessory items. All attendees who bring a denim garment to drop off for recycling through Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program will receive a $5 credit to shop the sale.
