Alaïa is giving Superga a high-fashion makeover, thanks to the duo’s chic new collaboration.
Drafted by creative director Pieter Mulier, the limited-edition line revamps two of the Italian sneaker brand’s styles with an Alaïa twist, inspired by their shared love of easy fits and clean lines. The first, the footwear brand’s low-top Superga 2790 sneaker, features monochrome white canvas uppers with Alaïa’s signature geometric “double-A” stitching. Finishing the $510 set are thick platform soles.
Similarly, the $710 black version features the same soles and detailing, along with a dash of edge from reptilian-printed leather uppers. Each pair features co-branded satin tags, silver eyelets and leather insoles as well.
However, the duo’s collaboration also includes a revised take to Superga’s 2750 sneakers. The low-top silhouette, featuring a shorter sole than the 2790’s, is given a similar branding with a white canvas set with asymmetric top-stitching, retailing for $460. The monochrome black version, featuring the same reptilian leather uppers as its platform cousin, retails for $650.
Despite the launch’s limited-edition nature, there’s more exciting news on the horizon: the collaboration is ongoing, and will release new styles in the Spring 2023 season as well.
