February 13, 2024 (NEW YORK, NY): Christian Cowan, in collaboration with TOMS as the exclusive footwear partner, unveiled Cowan’s Autumn/Winter 2024 at New York City’s The Harmonie Club, marking the first time the house has looked upon itself for the principle inspiration of a collection.
Expanding upon the house codes that have been present since the first runway offering, Autumn/Winter 2024 is a celebration of the five-point star with unexpected textiles.

“Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another”

“The flamboyance of the blossoming peony juxtaposed with raw and durable fabrics is so fresh. I love how these designs merge the magic of our runways with the ease of wearable and comfortable design. These are those shoes that you get and wear every, single, day and forget about all your other shoes.” – Christian Cowan
