Superga North America teamed up with founders and designers of Rodarte, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, to launch an exclusive range of sneakers for Spring 2015. Superga’s iconic sneaker silhouettes are reinvented using a unorthodox blend of materials. The classic low-top and high top styles are designed in denim with netting overlay, with some styles featuring a contrasting tongue in snake-print embossed leather. Rodarte’s modern approach to the classic sneaker includes a contrast of colors from black, white, blue and brown.
“We were inspired by Superga’s iconic look, and by taking that recognizable message and putting it in new context – one that conceptually explored innovative and interesting textures and fabrications. We built a world inspired by netting, stamped leathers, and surfaces (tweeds and denims). This allowed for us to keep the meaning of the Superga classic line, and yet, bring our point of view to the design,” said Kate and Laura Mulleavy.
