SUPERGA X THE MAN REPELLER

28th May 2014

From New York, N.Y. Superga is pleased to announce that their collaboration with Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller will continue for the Spring/Summer 2014 season. The partnership initially began in August 2013 with the launch of Medine’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection for the brand. While her debut collection featured lush velvet and metallic boucle fabrics to re-imagine the classic Superga sneaker, Leandra has turned to luxurious textures in developing The Man Repeller x Superga Spring/Summer 2014 collection. For her second showing, Medine introduces satin and metallic tweed variations, evolving her signature aesthetic for the warmer months ahead. The luxe satin styles are available in black, denim blue, mustard yellow, and olive green. Pairing luxe textiles with the simplicity of a classic sneaker, the collection reflects The Man Repeller’s approach to fashion as a whole. “Satin is one of my favorite fabrics – it catches color so well – and is traditionally used on very formal shoes, so I thought it would be cool to put it on sneakers,” said Leandra. “I think this collection is really the spring-friendly version of fall”.
