Coming Soon: Rodarte x Superga

In 2012, the Rodarte sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, introduced their very first line of shoes. Previously the pair had worked with Christian Louboutin for their runway creations and more often than not, the stunning stilettos and one-of-a-kind boots never made it onto the sales floor. And in the rare instances that the shoes did become available, they were accompanied by astronomical price tags and vertigo-inducing heels. Fast forward to 2015 and the sisters have come down to earth and for the first time, collaborating with another brand for one-of-a-kind sneakers that are easier on your arches and your wallet.

The Rodarte x Superga collection, which was celebrated at a celebrity-filled event at Beverly Hill’s Chateau Marmont last weekend, features a few different styles, but the overarching theme that had us most excited: these sneakers are flat and comfortable. Guests such as Sofia Coppola (who models the shoes for the lookbook) as well as Rodarte’s die-hard fans, including Kirsten Dunst and Dakota Fanning, admired snakeskin accents, mesh overlays and subtle matte beading on a few of Superga’s most iconic silhouettes. Available soon in both high and low tops, expect these sneakers to be blogger bait for the next few seasons to come.

The collaboration isn’t the first collaboration for either brand. Rodarte famously paired with Target in 2009 for a high/low collab and had a few selections in the Neiman Marcus for Target holiday capsule collection in 2012. Superga has previously teamed with bloggers such as the Blonde Salad and the Man Repeller as well as labels such as Versus Versace and the Row. There is no news yet on a release date, but you can be sure that the Rodarte x Superga collection won’t last long. Thank the sneaker renaissance that the fashion world’s loving and those Rodarte sisters and their Midas touch.
