Versace’s VP of men’s footwear Salehe Bembury has teased a bright orange New Balance collaboration. Bembury has been hinting at a New Balance collaboration since December, but he recently revealed what appears to be official campaign photos for a yet-unnamed New Balance sneaker model.
While the shoe is largely obscured by orange fuzz in the picture, a bluish-silver New Balance logo and a tongue piece branded with Bembury’s name is visible in the middle of the chaos. The playful design language also appears to extend to a textured suede panel and durable mesh construction on the tongue, though little else is visible.
Interestingly, Bembury’s first post hinting at the sneaker last month was geotagged at Bodega Los Angeles, potentially gesturing towards an exclusive release. Additionally, the designer shared pictures of what appeared to be co-branded denim with New Balance back in December. The full details (including pricing and release date) and extent of the collaboration have yet to be confirmed, so make sure to stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
