Two worlds apparently so distant, that basically they are more alike than we can expect: we are talking about Haute Couture, the highest expression of craftsmanship and tailoring of fashion houses, and sneakers, our favorite shoe to combine with looks more or less casual. It almost seems that the great fashion houses were inspired by the most important footwear designers and vice versa - even if this is not the case - given the similarity between the shapes and colors of some looks.

Proceeding by free association, starting with shapes, colors, silhouettes and materials, in absolute freedom, we have associated the Couture dresses from the 90s up to the last SS21 season, with iconic and seasonal sneakers. Here is the result.
