Kristin Cavallari Talks Her New Line of Jewelry, Summer Shoes and More – Footwear News

Although summer is coming to an end, Kristin Cavallari is just getting started. The jewelry designer, entrepreneur and lifestyle guru spent the weekend in the Hamptons, sharing her latest Uncommon James and Uncommon Beauty collections at Infinity Creative Agency’s Infinity Summer House. Shoe News caught up with her on Sunday as she wrapped up the three-day affair, comfortably dressed in a mango-colored Gymshark ensemble and puffy nude leather slide sandals.

From Friday to Sunday, editors, influencers and it-girls relaxed by the pool and sipped cocktails while trying on Uncommon James’ new fall collection. Cavallari’s line included a range of versatile gold chokers and pendants, as well as geometric earrings, which combined her contemporary and bohemian styles. New products from the socialite’s Uncommon Beauty brand were also on display, including a foaming powder cleanser and a pineapple enzyme serum. Guests were treated to a variety of activities on the final day to rejuvenate and relax, including a group Pilates class, Shen facials and NutriVi IV drops.

Ahead, we spoke with Cavallari about her new jewelry and beauty collections, must-have summer footwear, and plans for the upcoming fall season.

What are your favorite pieces in your new collections, and why?

Well, Uncommon Beauty is exciting because we launched it this spring — but it sold out twice! And so it just came back into stock a few days ago, so having it here is a big deal, as long as everyone can actually try the products and take them home, that’s really exciting for me . So, I feel like it’s a good party. And then for jewelry, we just released our second drop of our fall collection, and we have a lot of crosses, which are really on trend right now. It’s a dainty little cross we have (Note: she wears it and moves the cross outward to show it). I’m really obsessed with them right now. I think they’re just really… they’re obviously controversial, but I just like them because they’re trendy, and ours almost look like little daggers, most of them, so it’s is how I changed them and put my little spin on them.

What were your favorite shoes this summer?

My go-to shoes this summer have been my APL sliders because they are so comfortable and I just run with my kids for the most part. And then I try to think… I actually wear these Steve Madden sandals, these nude Steve Madden sandals, because they go with everything. And then I also wore… I’m trying to think, in my shoe closet… or, what did I bring with me here? I also wore my Golden Goose sneakers a lot. I was more functional than stylish, I guess. Although, but now, luckily, the designers have married the two, you know? You can be functional, comfortable and stylish.

Are there any shoe trends you can’t wait to wear this fall?

Fall, to me, is always just boots and ankle boots. These are my favourites. So superposition, and [they’re] just everything. I think you can have a great simple basic outfit and throw on a nice pair of heels, and it really elevates your outfits. That’s why I love boots and ankle boots.

How was the process of organizing these events in the Hamptons for your new Uncommon James and Beauty collections?

Well, luckily we partnered with ICA, and they really did all the heavy lifting. But I’ve known the ICA ladies for a few years, because they were our PR company for Uncommon James. They were looking to get this house for the Hamptons, and I was so excited to jump at the chance because… well, a few reasons. One being that we haven’t had an event since before COVID. And I haven’t been to the Hamptons in 12 or 13 years, so I was really excited about that. So, it’s been a really fun weekend! [On] On Friday, we had some editors come in, we had a cocktail party, and I got to help them style them with some of the jewelry. Yesterday was a big pool party, and then today is obviously wellness day and, you know, doing a Pilates class and having an unusual beauty here, and the IVs, and just a fun wellness day. So it was a blast. I had a good time.

What was your favorite moment of this weekend?

I really liked the Pilates class earlier. I thought that was fun. It was nice to be outside and do it in the sun, and have a great group of people doing it, and the instructor was amazing. So that was cool.

What’s next for you? What are you most looking forward to in the future?

I just started working on my third cookbook. My fourth book, but third cookbook, and so it’s been a lot of fun. It’s just quick and easy meals, and my other two cookbooks, I actually worked with a chef on them. And my editor specifically said he didn’t want anything chief this time around. So, it’s just me! And it’s actually more fun, just being in my kitchen, just doing my thing. So it was really nice.
