Supra x Maurizio Molin
I love shoe collaborations simply because they provide a story, or a memorable thought you have each time you slip on the shoe. This Supra x Maurizio Molin Women's footwear collaboration does just that. The story goes like this; Maurizio Molin is a Venetian based artist, designer, and painter who began his career at a very young age with a well-known Italian artisan who, coincidentally, created fine shoes. He has become best known for "his dot and geometric pattern paintings, which live, as he says, "in the middle-ground between art and design."
"I design and I paint," Maurizio said, "and for me both are a creative expression. The best is when I have the opportunity to use my art on some great design or fashion products, like this project for SUPRA. The specific piece of art that I've made for this SUPRA collaboration is a blending of my pop colors with some fashion influences. We wanted to do something a little different than my usual geometric patterns and so, for the first time, I've used a snakeskin pattern."
I really like the loudness of this shoe. The print is all over the place up close, which makes for a great look to a passer-by. The collection consists of three classic SUPRA silhouettes (click to purchase)—a Vaider, a Skytop, and a Wrap—all emblazoned with the art of Maurizio Molin.
Big thanks to Supra for gifting me the Wrap pair, catch me rocking them on my Instagram page.
