“Rumormongering: Most All-American Pairing Ever: Gap to Team Up with Keds?

via Racked NY by Izzy Grinspan on 2/8/10


A well-placed tipster emailed this weekend to tell us that Keds will be collaborating with the Gap this upcoming summer. The shoes, designed by Patrick Robinson, will come in washed-out denims and pastels. Prices haven't bee n settled yet, but the shoes should debut at a pop-up shop, presumably the one next to the Gap flagship on 54th Street. Keds has previously teamed up with everyone from Nanette Lepore to Opening Ceremony—just this morning we heard about Alice & Olivia's party Keds—but this may be the first time they've ever worked with a company that's equally big and clean-cut. Even thinking about it makes us feel wholesome.”

andd…….( I can barely contain my excitement at all this Keds news!)

“Collabs: Alice + Olivia Gave Keds a Sparkly New Makeover

Will Keds ever replace Chucks as the flat, retro footwear of choice for off-duty fashionistas? They certainly seem to be shooting for that niche with their latest designer collaborations. We loved the animal-print pony hair Keds put together for Opening Ceremony, and the newest designs by Alice + Olivia fill that all-important disco ball demographic with four pair of sequin-encrusted laceless slip-ons.

They come in four colors, black, silver, pale pink and safari green and sell for $88. Alice + Olivia for Keds is just one step towards Keds' intended fashion-forward repositioning. Future collaborations are in the works, and Keds' president Kristin Kohler says they plan partnerships with designers and artists who "can bring their own unique vision and creativity to the iconic Champion silhouette."”

I knew this trend would catch on, and I can’t help but be a little chuft at how they’ve "taken off” (again).

Big All-American, red, white, blue, and sparkly kiss xx
