First look: The new Superga collaborations dropping in March
Besides quality old-school sneaks in all shades of the colour wheel imaginable, Italian sneaker label Superga is also known for collaborating with fashion's contemporary names — both brands and influencers included.
Kicking off spring/summer on a high note with two new exciting collaborations, here's your first look at the brand new kicks to nab in stores next month.
WEEKEND MAX MARA x SUPERGA
From one Italian label purveying wearable wares to another, this is the go-to collaboration to channel that girl about town off-duty vibes. Weekend Max Mara's laidback aesthetic meets Superga's signature 2750 sneaker in the former's fabrics and prints for spring, giving the classic model an ecru weave and navy striped update — right down to the matching shoelaces.
Shop the Weekend Max Mara x Superga collection in both Superga and Weekend Max Mara boutiques worldwide and at Takashimaya Department Store in Singapore from March 2016.
SANDRO x SUPERGA
A dose of Parisian insouciance never hurt nobody, and what better label to indulge in that understated elegance than Sandro? This sneaker collab caters to both the gents and the ladies, courtesy of the French brand's womenswear and menswear designers: Mother and son duo Evelyne and Ilan Chétrite.
In line with both Sandro and Superga's penchant for subtlety, the sneakers for women come in exisiting 2750 hues — navy, off-white and white — albeit with vulcanised, coloured rubber soles. These Sandro x Superga sneakers flash burgundy, red and blue respectively when worn and on-the-go.
Switching it up with influences from the era Ilan Chétrite draws his menswear inspiration from, the sneakers for men feature plastic cap toes that contrast the navy, white and chambray upper of the shoes. The retro aesthetic is a reference to the footwear worn by the Italian Navy in the '50s and '60s. Take a trip back in time and dip into the style archives with a pair of these utilitarian kicks.
Shop the Sandro x Superga collection at Sandro boutiques at Ion Orchard and The Shoppes by Marina Bay Sands from end March 2016.
