SOLE SISTERS: Keds is looking to capture a piece of the current fashion sneaker trend pie. The plimsoll purveyor has partnered with Topshop on a limited-edition capsule collection designed by, who else? Instagram personas.
Hailed as the first installment of the brand’s new Keds Collective program, two styles created by Tina Leung and Julia Sarr-Jamois will become available for sale on Topshop’s Web site and in select Topshop stores beginning May 5.
Both women took a spin on Keds’ classic Champion style. Leung’s design comes covered in pearlescent sequins and is laced with grosgrain ribbon. Sarr-Jamois’ is fabricated of a pink canvas and is strung with patterned pink and cobalt laces.
The shoes retail for $45.
