Alaïa creative director Pieter Mulier has infused Superga‘s signature Italian footwear silhouettes with a pinch of Parisian design codes.

Invented in Turin in 1925 by entrepreneur Walter Martiny, the Superga 2750 has received myriad updates and collaborative iterations throughout its almost-decade-long history, proof of its standing the test of time as a footwear staple. Building on that heritage, enter Alaïa’s take — punched with emblematic double “A” stitches and perforated eyelets, the sneaker appears in both an off-white canvas and a dark-printed reptilian leather. Seated above the silhouette’s usual low-top sole, the aforementioned fabrications align with the two houses’ shared ideals — “purity of the line” and “ease of fit” — while maintaining an elevated, day-to-night appeal.

Elsewhere, the contemporary collab introduces a revamped iteration of Superga’s 2790 sneakers, which boast a far more dramatic platform sole for the more daring style casters. Aligning with the partnership at-large, the Alaïa-tapped silhouette appears related to its low-top predecessor, finished in identical white canvas and reptilian black colorways.

Though the collaboration will arrive only in limited quantities, the labels have confirmed that their partnership is ongoing — and that we can expect new silhouettes in the Spring/Summer 2023 catalog. The Alaïa x Superga collection is now available to shop exclusively in Alaïa stores and on the Maison’s website. Prices range from 350 EUR to €550 EUR. 

Take a look at the collaborative sneakers in the gallery above.
