We all know Alexa Chung for her eponymous clothing line, enviable style, and British roots, but that’s not all. The It girl’s latest venture — an exclusive collaboration with Superga — will likely be a hit among A.Chung devotees and sneaker aficionados alike. From a souped-up grass green satin trainer to an anything but plain Jane high-top, the line of iconic Italian kicks (all reasonably priced under $100) encapsulates the model-turned-designer’s tomboy aesthetic down to a T.
Updates to Superga’s OG silhouettes (the 2750, mid-cut, and mule) include a fresh crop of springy colorways and materials (think: high-shine varnish, satin, and terry towel). Chung’s love for the brand’s classic kicks stems back to her childhood. “Superga sneakers were really the only ones that I’ve gravitated toward because I’m a big fan of classic things and they stand the test of time,” she told InStyle. “My mom used to wear the trainers when I was growing up, so it was really exciting for me to come up with a way to reinterpret them.”
