FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - COBRA SOCIETY IMPOSES “NEW ORDER” FOR FALL WINTER ’13

Cobra Society is proud to present artisan skills and contemporary sophistication like never before with the brand’s fifth collection entitled, “New Order.” Designer/Founder Alexandra Davis’s essence remains firmly intact, yet a darker more refined aesthetic arises this Fall Winter. Davis introduces a whole new series of classic design elements into her repertoire. Laser cutting, militarized hardware, quilted-stamped leather, and a new original boot last are realized in hues of midnight charcoal, sumptuous pistachio, bamboo, and paprika. A capsule collection of Italian-made metal bags brings a dimension of strong and powerful elegance. The ‘Berlin Mesh-Canteen’ and ‘Canister’ purses poignantly exemplify this season’s military influence. And the ‘Alex Metal Clutch’ features a unique method of laser cutting – with a pattern inspired by Cobra’s custom Moroccan tapestries laser etched into the rectangular bronze casket. A similar pattern can be found cut into the shaft of this season’s new ‘Dania’ short riding boot. The ‘Dania’ also features militarized hardware adornments like the custom Cobra Society metal bullet lace ends which punctuate multiple styles within the collection. This season’s boldly sexy black over-the-knee ‘Zeus’ boot is the first time we see Cobra’s signature diamond take the form of custom quilted-stitched leather. Another first: the brand’s newest original boot last, as seen in the ‘Leon’ ankle bootie and ‘Byron’ mid-calf boot – characterized by a flatter, more streamlined silhouette. Over the past five seasons, Cobra Society has expanded and grown to occupy a new place in the fashion market. What began in 2010 as a line of luxury boots has now grown into a collection of boots, flats, handbags and small leather goods/home accents. Davis’s line is entirely produced in Spain and Morocco. Calf hairs and leathers are custom-dyed and produced in Italy and Spain. Hardware is custom-made by an airplane machinist in the U.S. And the kilims are hand woven by the Middle Atlas women in Morocco. All the footwear is lastingly constructed; and all boots good year welted.
