Altuzarra X Keds: An Old Friend Reimagined

Keds X Altuzarra: An Old Friend Reimagined

As seen on the Altuzarra Spring-Summer 2023 runway presentation during New York Fashion Week last fall, the Altuzarra x Keds collaboration fuses the artisanal eye of Altuzarra with the ease of Keds’ classic sneakers.

An ode to the Altuzarra woman, each style features thoughtful details that evoke a perfectly undone feel—from sleek suede and leather juxtaposed with textural distressing, to shredded canvas that exposes a hint of satin.

Crafted with a contrasting rubber sole, graphic leather accents, and an embossed logo, the Renaissance embraces a sporty sensibility.

The Altuzarra x Keds Champion reimagines Keds’ most iconic silhouette with a monochromatic look and artful distressing.

“For this collaboration, I drew inspiration from Keds that had been worn over time, and thought it was interesting to treat wear-and-tear as a precious marker of time, not to be discarded but celebrated.”

Rendered in a range of versatile, neutral hues, these styles were intended for endless wear, and reference the imperfect, and ultimately personal, effects caused by wear in their designs.
