Keds enters luxury space with Altuzarra collaboration
American footwear brand Ked's announced on Saturday its entry into the luxury space, revealing its new shoe collaboration with high-fashion brand, Altuzarra.
The Lexington, Massachusetts-based Keds debuted an exclusive footwear collection with luxury women's ready-to-wear and accessories brand, Altuzarra, during the latter's New York Fashion Week show on September 10.
Up close, the footwear capsule reimagines classic Keds' silhouettes in luxe fabrications and unique styles, that riff on the stylings of Altuzarra.
The 'Renaissance' sneakers, inspired by archival Keds runner silhouettes, are crafted with satin underlays, ripped and distressed canvas uppers, and finished with suede and leather overlays. Displayed in khaki and black, the shoe retails for $180 and is available to shop for pre-order now.
In addition to the Renaissance, the collaboration will also feature two similarly fabricated Champion styles priced at $140.
"Our partnership with Altuzarra marks Keds' emergence into the luxury fashion space with our iconic silhouettes reimagined through the lens of the talented Joseph Altuzarra," said Jen Lynch, VP and general manager of Keds. "The collection delivers unique styles in luxe fabrications for our customers in styles they cherish."
All styles will be available in the spring of 2023, Keds added.
Founded by creative director Joseph Altuzarra in 2008, the namesake Altuzarra label crafts luxury women's ready-to-wear and accessories, that are both modern and feminine, with influence from the designer's own multicultural background.
