From The Straits Times    |

This sounds almost like a stretch but Andrea Chong is exactly like us. But okay fine, we might not live the jet-setting glamorous life she lives but if there’s a mutual similarity between us and her: it’s our shared love for pretty yet practical shoes. And that’s exactly what she is delivering with her latest collaboration with Italian sneaker brand Superga.

Drawing inspiration from her global adventures (and if you’re not following her, she travels a lot), Andrea’s capsule collection reflects an aesthetic of some countries that best resonated with her – sandy beaches and the quaint quietness of the countryside. This is seen in a jute rope that envelops the sole (très espadrille non?) whilst metallic rose gold eyelets lend a very feminine touch to the sneakers. And yes, each sneaker still has its iconic vulcanized sole that withstands daily wear (accordingly, Superga sneakers might even outlive us and we’re being serious here).

And because she’s just like us, she knows that we enjoy the occasional freebie: each purchase of the sneakers includes a cotton tote bag in the perfect shade of pastel pink. Now that’s service.

The Andrea Chong x Superga collaboration will launch in stores and online on the June 29, 2018. Each pair (pink, tan or white) retails at $139.90.
