Artifact by Superga pays homage to the brand’s 100 years of expertise in making shoes. Being one of the brand’s pinnacle product lines, the collection has been designed with classic piece-of-art attention to detail, for the man of today who is keen on basic and reﬁned garments.
The collection is exclusively developed by the brand’s design centre in collaboration with Japanese designer, Teppei Sugaya. Born in Japan and based in Europe, Teppei believes in the marriage of old and new; classic European design and innovative Japanese materials.
The collection draws inspiration from authentic European workwear and is brought to life by quality Japanese materials. The main feature in this collection is the Broken Twill fabric on the uppers. Often used in Japanese denim, this material is known for its durability counterbalanced by its smoothness.
Artifact by Superga is extremely considered in its construction and craftsmanship. The classic, textured bumper is turned 45°, giving it a “diamond” appearance. The foxing is glued to the upper with a fudge wheel, which guarantees excellent adherence. The cotton shoelaces feature a waxed eﬀect for extra grip and durability. This collection’s heel patch logo has been designed to echo one of Superga tennis shoes from the ‘50s and provides the new silhouettes with an authentic look.
To commemorate the launch of the collection, Superga Singapore partnered with three local modern-day craftsmen in a visual series entitled “Artifact Episodes” – to be released exclusively on Superga Singapore’s Instagram page.
Artifact by Superga launches in Singapore on 10 September 2022. The collection will be available online and in all Superga stores.
