For a campaign trip to South Florida on September 10, the Democratic vice-presidential candidate sported a khaki suit by Max Mara, a white top, and espadrilles by a British brand, Kurt Geiger London.
Above, the senator listens to Florida Memorial University’s The Roar marching band. Ms. Harris was at the school’s Miami Gardens campus. It is southern Florida’s only HBCU (Historically Black College/University); the Senator hosted a “community conversation,” or roundtable, on challenges facing the African American community in South Florida. Below, the Senator with University President Dr. Jaffus Hardrick.
More from this Tampa Bay Times story:
Harris, who would be the first Black woman and Caribbean-American to be vice president if elected, was introduced at Florida Memorial University by Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, an early Harris supporter.
“Black women have carried this nation, this race, this Democratic Party ever since we landed on this continent,” Wilson said. “And for you to be on the cusp of being the first Black, Caribbean vice president, I’m Bahamian, it means so much.”
From left to right President Dr. Jeffus, Pastor Rhonda Thomas, Executive Director, Faith in Florida; Miami Shores Village Mayor, Crystal Wagar; the Senator; US Representative Frederica Wilson; Ruban Roberts, President Miami-Dade NAACP; I believe the gentleman on the far right is Eric Knowles, Chairman, Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce.
This was the stop for the candidate. Photographer Chandan Khanna posted several photos of the Senator on Twitter.
The candidate’s khaki jacket and trousers are not identified, nor is the white top or tee. UPDATE DEC 22: Ms. Harris was in separates by Max Mara. She was in the brand’s ‘Daniel’ Jacket ($861, originally $2050) and the ‘Tartufo’ style trousers ($262, originally $875).
The pieces are crafted of a mohair/silk blend described as being midweight. The Daniel jacket is a double-breasted cut with shoulder pads, peak lapels, two front flap pockets, a breast pocket, and dual back vents. The pants are a straight-leg design with a front zipper and hook/bar closure, slanted front pockets, and two back welt pockets.
The Kurt Geiger ‘Monty’ high wedge heel espadrilles feature an ivory leather upper with a round toe, a metallic-flecked heel with back cutout, and a 3.25″ heel with a 1″ platform. The style is available from multibrand retailer Farfetch ($129) as well as directly from Kurt Geiger London (£99, about $130; shipping to the USA is £10).
The style is also available in black suede at Nordstrom ($71.96)
Founded in 1963, Kurt Geiger London is an up-market accessories brand based in London, with 70+ free-standing stores. Its styles are popular with many members of the royal family: Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has been seen wearing the brand’s boots and the Duchess of Cambridge, formerly Kate Middleton, has also been seen in Kurt Geiger.
The Senator wore her Irene Neuwirth necklace from the Gumball Fine Jewelry Collection, essentially a double-strand version of the necklace shown below. I *think* she also had on her Marco Bicego ‘Paradise’ Teardrop Studs ($955).
If I learn who made the Senator’s suit I will update the post.
