Just in time for spring (or is it summer?), the second set of Supergas by Man Repeller are ready for your purchasing pleasure if you are willing to call the act of purchasing one that is pleasurable. And if last season was a story about taking regal velvet off the head of the pope and stapling it onto the absolutely-quotidian-though-spectacularly-reliable tennis sneakers emblematic of the Superga brand, this season is frankly about the following:
a) Turning a ballerina upside down on her head and giving her slippers a run for their money with a pair of blush pink, satin rubber soled sneakers that come with extra long laces so you can still feel flexible and elegant, etc.
b) Forgoing the backs of some of your sneakers and raising a glass to the mules of yore, which are also the mules of today. They don’t transport drugs but they do harness dreams!
c) Looking at the muted yellow satin on both the mules and full sneakers through the lens of a fashion consumer as opposed to food consumer so that you see them as a flight of fancy as opposed to a flight of condiment. (This is a mustard joke, I realize that might not be clear). Also, seeing the blue satin sneakers as your denim cut offs’ bffs.
d) Trading last season’s metallic tweed for this one’s.
e) Leisurely walking.
