Trending: Couture Trainers


The latest high fashion sneakers to give conventional sportswear brands a run for their money are Dior’s ‘Fusion’ sneakers, designed to be ‘as futuristic as they are couture’. Dropping into Dior stores this week, the haute-worthy sequin and rubber trainers seem to have orbited to us from another time – their sloped, ergonomic design and third eye embellishments speaking the language of Sci-Fi luxury.

And as for what to wear them with? We’d suggest sleek tailoring in the realm of designer Raf Simons’ A/W 2014 runway collection – so don’t be afraid of strong colour, keeping detailing to a minimum to let your kickers do all the talking.
