European Trends: Celebrating our stylish fashion muses
At Timberland, we celebrate all things European... style, friends, food, and culture feature high on the list and let’s not forget the indomitable Eurovision Song Contest (wasn’t it great this year?).
We’re also celebrating the European influencers who’ve been working with us. They’ve helped inspire our mission to create beautiful, expertly crafted collections and show how they allow you to explore your favourite city in comfort, without ever compromising on style. Read on and meet them…
Milan fashion personified
Beautiful Italian actress and role model, Beatrice Vendramin, insists she’s still just a regular girl, living a normal life.
She says: “Casual. Simple and sporty is my style. But depending on the occasion I like to dress up more elegantly and classic too.”
Love the look: Beatrice is just as likely to be spotted in some stylish, laidback Kiri Up Sneakers, as a pair of Louboutins.
French style, effortlessly
French fashion influencer, Louise Follain, loves to explore (Paris is her favourite city), and her work is inspired by beautiful landscapes.
She says: “Behind every powerful woman is the group of people who stand behind her. I feel powerful because I have a good support team.”
Love the look: We snapped Louise looking effortlessly chic in a pair of versatile Berlin Park shoes in pretty, pastel rose.
Sartorial elegance, from Amsterdam to New York
Globetrotting is all in a day’s work for Amsterdam fashion influencer, Rebecca Laurey. When she’s not exploring somewhere new, she splits her time between her home city and New York.
She says: “If you can dream it, you can do it. The sky really is the limit, if you’re persistent and willing to work hard.”
Love the look: Rebecca proves that a classic sporty sandal from our LA Wind provides a perfect balance of style and practicality. Ideal when you’re checking out a new city.
Trendsetting, London style
UK-based fashion influencer Oliver Proudlock studied Fine Art at university and appeared on reality TV before deciding to pursue his dream of becoming a fashion designer. For him, craftsmanship and quality, and people watching are key.
He says: “I get inspiration creatively by people watching and experiencing the various different street styles.”
Love the look: Oliver gives our classic boat shoes an urban edge, by teaming them with crisp white jeans and a statement camo jacket.
Mixing classic with contemporary
Raphaël lives in Paris but his wanderlust has sent him all over the world. His travel style? Always simple, but with a twist.
He says: “The twist can be pairing a basic black outfit with a beautiful vintage leather jacket I found in a second-hand shop.”
Love the look: Raphaël pairs classic black skinny jeans, with black Oxfords - urban sneakers at their most stylish.
Relaxed Italian style
A model based in Milan, Andrea loves taking adventurous trips but never without his camera! When he’s not working or exploring somewhere new, he’s hanging out in the city with his favourite people.
He says: “My style is very basic but always with an eye towards quality and the materials used.”
Love the look: Design and quality are synonymous with the Timberland boot. Andrea chose the Killington in blue to complete his relaxed city-ready look.
