What’s the mark of a style icon? To paraphrase the house of Prada, which launches its second interpretation of Adidas Originals’ Superstar sneakers as part of its ongoing partnership with the athletic brand on Sep 8: “When a timeless item does not call for re-design, but rather provokes reconsideration.”
How it’s now “reconsidered” the famous kicks after adding to it both collaborator’s logos and the words “Made In Italy” hot-stamped onto the sides last year: By remaking te same in full-grain leather in the new colourways of monochrome black, white and black, or white and chrome silver – and nothing more.
Does that answer the question?
The Prada For Adidas retails at $700 each and will be available from Prada’s boutiques at Ion Orchard and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
