“We are proud to be able to design and donate the 2,400 jackets to all of the Sundance Film Festival volunteers or as we refer to them ‘the real stars of Sundance,’ ” said Cole. “The puffer jackets can be subtle or bold; they are ideal for these wearing times.”
The festival, hosted in Park City, Utah, kicks off today and runs through Jan. 29.
As for the movie he’s looking forward to seeing, the designer said the decision was a tough call: “There are too many great selections to single out any one film.”
During his downtime in Utah, Cole added that he’s planning to head to the New Frontier exhibit. “[It] is always breaking new ground with art, technology and innovative storytelling.”
