Blending fine art, luxury and contemporary fashion, Supra introduces the Royal Collection. The collection consists of new silhouettes that allow designers to experiment with color and materials to craft a more sophisticated, innovative line of footwear. Included in the 2012 Fall/Holiday Royal Collection are the Falcon and Donavyn, each available in three styles.
The Falcon is a mid-top designed with distinctive stitch-through details, such as a padded foam heel overlay panel and collar. Also featured is a padded mesh lining, vulcanized sole and double-layer textured foxing. Three premium materials were used in this lineup: caramel full-grain leather (tanned with natural vegetable dyes); brilliant white full-grain leather and black tumbled full-grain leather.
Redolent of a dress shoe, the Donavyn is a stylish low-top designed to showcase modern details with luxurious materials. The shoe sports a long, clean vamp, stitch and turn heel detail, a larger collar opening, padded mesh lining and a vulcanized sole outfitted with two layers of textured foxing. Material and color selection is the same for Fall/Holiday 2012.
