After the success of her spring ’18 Superga collaboration, Alexa Chung is back with a new capsule collection for fall — and it’s got some edge.
The designer put a fresh spin on the Alpina lug sole, a historical style that has its heritage in the Superga sports training styles.
The cloglike kicks feature buckle closures and come in fall-ready materials like patent leather and velvet.
Chunky soles play a major role in the collection, appearing on both booties and sneakers.
Chung also took inspiration from bowling shoes for the new range, with the Cotleabrush style featuring a two-tone colorway and a vulcanized rubber sole.
“I really enjoyed creating for the brand and adding a piece of myself into the designs. I hope that everyone loves them as much as I enjoyed making them,” she said of the new collection.
The 34-year-old British influencer’s eponymous label, Alexachung, won the 2017 FN Achievement Award for Launch of the Year.
The fall collection offers insights on styling the Italian brand’s shoes for colder weather, introducing fabrics like velvet and suede that offer additional warmth.
The full Alexachung x Superga capsule collection is available to shop now at Superga.co.uk/alexachung. Prices range from $79 for the 2292 Alexachung Cothook — a white sneaker with a mule-style back — to $179 for velvet Alpina booties.
