The most fashionable sneakers for the spring/summer season
TRENDS FOR THE SPRING/SUMMER SEASON!
Balenciaga - luxury rebellion
When the fashion industry whispered about Demna Gvasalia taking over as creative director in 2015, many thought it unlikely. The almost anti-fashion aesthetics of his designs for Vetements stood in direct opposition to the still slightly dusty and conservative image of the Balenciaga fashion house. Today it is impossible to think about streetwear without Balenciaga.
The designs of a Georgian designer are a fascinating deconstruction of everyday life. The brazenly clunky, record-breaking 'Triple S', 'Track' and 'Speed' sneakers have iconic status today, and their appearance has directed trends around the world. Memification and recontextualization of fashion, viral campaigns and unusual solutions changed the definition of luxury, turning Balenciaga's projects into real objects of desire. Everything indicates that the new models will repeat the unquestionable success of their predecessors.
The surprising 'Phantom' sneaker campaign depicting people commuting to work by the London Underground and the loud promotion on Instagram with Justin Bieber wearing 'Runner' shoes made both models quickly appreciated by trendsetters around the world.
Salomon - shoes inspired by the beauty of movement
Gorpcore, an increasingly popular trend inspired by outdoor clothing and communing with nature, is a response to the post-pandemic need to experience something more than a slick screen and keyboard clatter under your fingers. Salomon, a brand that has specialized in this field for years - previously associated with functionality and technology rather than fashion - decided to invite prominent people from the fashion industry to the forest to present its new models of shoes. They deliberately used the moment when, due to the pandemic, it was difficult to organize a crowded evening event and thus... entered the salons!
Solomon draws from past experiences and looks ahead. The models packed with technologies will also prove themselves in urban spaces - discover the stabilizing steps of the 'Agile Chassis System', 'Salomon Air Flow' enabling air circulation and the innovative 'Quicklace ™' lacing system. Relish the comfort provided by a special insert that adapts to the shape of the foot and the rubber sole 'All Terrain Contagrip®'.
Designing in line with the current trends, inspired by the early 2000s, it attracts not only lovers of mountain trips, but also lovers of streetwear styling.
Trigreca - a revolutionary evolution
The latest Versace designs masterfully appeal to the tastes of young consumers of the luxury industry, without sacrificing the house codes well-known to loyal customers. The brand is experiencing its renaissance thanks to its impressive ability to adapt to modern rules in the industry, dictated by new generations and technologies.
Recognizable symbols such as the head of Medusa (which appeared in the brand's logo in 1993) or the geometric pattern 'La Greca' made of an unbroken line (first shown at the fall / winter 1988 show) became a link between the long tradition of the Italian fashion house, and current trends. This is perfectly illustrated by the best-selling 'Trigreca' model, created in collaboration with the award-winning and recognized in the industry men's sneakers and shoes designer, Salahe Bembury. It is distinguished by a contemporary design, an innovative sole with a well-known motif and countless color possibilities, thanks to which every Versace fan - regardless of age or gender - can find their perfect sneakers.
Veja - sneakers with a mission
Veja is undoubtedly the leader among ecologically sustainable brands. World-famous designers such as Rick Owens and Marni, as well as young artists with a visionary approach who care about the fate of our planet, strive to collaborate with the creators of iconic sneakers.
One of the most popular models takes its name from the Brazilian ESPLAR organization that supports organic and family farming. Each step in the production phase is meticulously thought out and constantly improved. Leather is subjected to an innovative tanning process in which there is no harmful chromium, heavy metals or hazardous acids. By simplifying the entire process, the consumption of chemicals and energy is reduced. The water used in the production is recyclable, and when creating the characteristic patches, you use ... rice waste!
Personalize your choice by choosing your favorite shade of the famous logo. Bet on the timeless models 'V-10', 'V-12' and 'Campo' in classic white. Choice of: fair trade organic cotton laces or the 'Recife' model fastened with practical Velcro.
An avantgarde form from Lanvin
Lanvin perfectly combines two worlds: high tailoring with over 140 years of tradition and unrestrained style of street fashion. The sneakers debuting in 2020 at the Paris Fashion Week contrasted on the catwalk with the silhouettes of models in jackets, shirts and elegant coats. The inspiration of Creative Director Bruno Sialelli in creating the 'Curb' model were the heroes of Hugh Holland's iconic photographs, documenting Californian skateboarders in the 1970s.
Massive construction, oversized tongue, a row of metal D-rings, decorative lacing, reminiscent of woven Japanese kimonos, and above all handcrafted workmanship - all this makes it difficult to pass by them indifferently. 'Curb' are currently the most desirable sneakers in the high fashion world. The shoes surprise with their original colors, and fashion fans eagerly await each new premiere.
