Golden Goose, the famous brand known for its luxury sneakers, and Swarovski are launching a limited edition collection just around the Christmas holidays, that perfectly combines Italian craftsmanship tradition and crystal savoir-faire.
This collaboration between golden goose and the famous Austrian maison includes two new versions of the iconic Super-Star sneaker embellished with Swarovski crystals, and an exclusive skateboard characterized by a crystal design inspired by the Golden Goose flag. The particularity of their design is given by the fact that all the applied crystals have different dimensions which give volume, brightness and three-dimensional effect to the shoes.
More specifically, the white sneakers will be limited to 250 pairs, while the pink version, exclusive to the Swarovski channels, will be limited to just 100 pairs.
Golden Goose X Swarovski Creators Lab is inspired by the Californian skate world of Los Angeles. the Super-Star was the first shoe to feature the iconic Golden Goose star, a concept conceived during a trip to the Venice Beach skate park.
Creators Lab is the platform that Swarovski launched last year to offer limited edition pieces in collaboration with brands from around the world featuring “cutting-edge design and craftsmanship”. His previous collaborations include footwear brand Amina Muaddi, Judith Leiber bags, Nike sneakers, an FAO Schwarz nutcracker and a crystallized basketball with the streetwear brand Market.
For this collaboration, the original Super-Star design has been transformed with a stunning Swarovski makeover thanks to the hand application of a wide range of crystals. The pink model is handcrafted in suede with a star in white leather, heel tab and inserts in ice-colored suede, further embellished with all-over pink crystals. The second model is made, again by hand, in white leather with stars, suede heel and inserts and further embellished with all-over transparent crystals.
The skateboard series, on the other hand, is made up of 10 pieces obviously in a limited edition and therefore conceived as real collectible items. The black top features a thin band of crystals with the Swarovski and Golden Goose logos, while the bottom is covered in clear, gray and black Swarovski crystals that graphically interpret the Golden Goose flag.
The collection debuts in December and is therefore already available exclusively on the e-shop and in selected Swarovski stores (skateboard and pink sneakers), as well as online and in selected Swarovski and Golden Goose stores (white sneakers). Both versions of the sneaker will retail for around 1,850 euros / 2,320 US dollars.
