If you’re not living in Italy – or at least Europe, chances are the ‘Hogan’ brand won’t sound the least familiar to your fashionable ears. However, Hogan is pretty much like Italy’s Converse. They’re so big that even Karl Lagerfeld created for them.
But who didn’t Karl Lagerfeld create for? This time, Hogan collaborated with Katie Grand who took a break from her mighty Love editorial duties and sketched some sneakers, ballet flats and bags for the Italian label. I don’t know about you, but I really like some of the designs! And what I like the most is that Saskia De Brauw is laughing in the collaboration’s lookbook. And she’s so charmingly unrecognizable! Take a look for yourself after the jump!
Being in the fashion magazines business, Katie Grand knew exactly who to get on board to represent her new collaboration (now available chez Colette): Clara Delevigne, Dree Hemingway, Magdalena Frackowiak, Edie Campbell, Maria Bradley. The all – too skinny girls wearing all – too little clothes but all – too cute sneakers appeal to my inner comfy loving fashionista. Actually – I wouldn’t mind one of them cute hearty bags either. You?
Oh – one more thing – do you think there’s any chance Katie’ll give away a pair of sneakers or a bag with one of her magazine’s issues? It would be so Grand of her (wink)!
