Staff Picks

Luxe, feminine and undeniably wearable: Pure Cashmere is our staff’s favorite spring hue. Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek into this collection, with the women who made it happen and those who love to wear it.


Design Director



Color Strategist

A career footwear designer, Penny’s career began in NYC before landing at Timberland HQ in New Hampshire. She travels the globe for inspiration, finding it in places ranging from couture runways to graphic design pieces.

For this season, Penny envisioned low-profile, comfortable, feminine silhouettes that would each offer multiple wearing occasions and transition well from spring into summer.

Growing up with a seamstress mom, fabrics in every hue were always part of Layla’s life. She studied textile design and color theory, and blends her technical knowledge with creative design at Timberland. Her inspiration for this season came from the world around us, in both city and country:

“The Pure Cashmere color is seen not only in urban environments, but also in parched deserts and at the shoreline at low tide. This color looks fresh, clean and modern for Spring.”
