Lucchese, the iconic craftsman of handmade boots, today announces the official launch of the Kacey for Lucchese boot collection designed in collaboration with Texas native, Grammy-winning country singer/songwriter, Kacey Musgraves.
The collection, which hits stores November 1, 2015, includes four styles inspired by Kacey’s life and music. Golden Arrow, the collection’s headliner, offers vintage western style with a pointed kick. Constructed in marbled white leather, Golden Arrow boasts metallic accents and Kacey’s signature golden arrow on the side seam.
“This boot is majorly influenced from a 1950s pair that are my absolute favorite...I probably wear them at every show,” said Kacey. “Also the symbol that has brought me so many reasons to celebrate - the arrow.”
Three new designs round out the collection: Gallop, available in both Dusty Pink and Bridle Brown, offers a tall ride with sassy fringe and Monterrey, a vibrant Western bootie, features a Southwestern-blanket design that encircles the ankle.
For the initial launch, Kacey for Lucchese will be available exclusively at country lifestyle retailer CountryOutfitter.com and select locations of the 50-year-old Western retail chain Cavender’s before expanding to other retailers in the spring.
“We want our customers to enjoy the full Lucchese experience from discovery in-store and online to wearing our boots with pride,” said Cindy Moore, Lucchese’s V.P. of Sales. “To offer more avenues for consumers to find Kacey for Lucchese, we selected Cavender’s and Country Outfitter as partners because they share our enthusiasm for Kacey and her collection.”
Kacey will help Lucchese celebrate the official launch on November 2 at the Nashville Lucchese store two days before she attends the Country Music Award (CMA) ceremony where she’s nominated for three awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for Pageant Material.
In addition to CountryOutfitter.com and select Cavender’s locations, the collection can be found at Lucchese retail stores (Houston, Nashville, San Antonio and Santa Fe) and Lucchese.com.
