Editor’s Notes: As part of an ongoing collaboration, UNDERCOVER and Valentino have released two new sneakers. This time the partnership gives a new take on the Valentino Garavani Open and Climbers sneakers. Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli, and UNDERCOVER’s Jun Takahashi take inspiration from macabre poet Edgar Allan Poe to create playful gothic graphics which are an exaggerated feature on the appliqué sneakers.
The low top Valentino Garavani Open sneakers come in black and feature skull appliqué and rock studs. The skull print touts Takahashi’s signature graphic style and carries Valentino’s iconic VLOGO. The Valentino Garavani Climbers sneakers, this time in a bold white, play off the large centered graphic with green hints. Check out the models in the gallery above.
UNDERCOVER recently opened its first online store, take a look at our favorite pieces, including Valentino collabs, here.
