Outrage Over $600 Duct
Golden Goose Deluxe Brand merged the creative spirits of Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo – two Venetian designers who considered themselves outsiders to the fashion world. This is reflected in the sneakers of 2007, of course, but also in their children’s fashion in 2009 and more recently, the Haus by GGDB collection in 2012. I picked up these pre-distressed, worn-in Golden Goose sneakers, which both my son and Ranbir Kapoor tell me are all the rage,” he said recently.
If you’re looking to make a statement this season, head to Golden Goose Deluxe Brand – it’s a one-stop shop for bold sports-luxe separates, glistening metallics and notice-me prints. The growth of Golden Goose reads like a fairytale-worthy succession of fateful moments that has resulted in rapid international expansion from its base in Venice.
Founded in 2000 by Francesca and Alessandro Gallo, Golden Goose Deluxe Brand is an Italian label that celebrates utilitarian clothing with unapologetic character. Style any of their signature sneakers with a pair of straight legged jeans, a Henley hoodie and a biker jacket for an effortlessly stylish urban ensemble.
Since 2000, designers Francesca and Alessandro Gallo have pushed the boundaries of urban street wear with Golden Goose sneakers Using re-purposed vintage materials and fine Italian craftsmanship from the Venetian region, each pair shows originality while acknowledging that the best shoes are those that have been worn and loved.
Their colourful high-top sneakers are distinguishable by their distressed, worn-out aesthetic. Golden Goose’s low-top Superstar sneaker is reworked in white with distinctive gold lettering marked across the upper. The point is, while these sneakers come dirty, their sleek shape, top-quality leather, and vibrant (but tasteful) pop of red color mean you’ll come off as more nonchalant than unkempt.
Located in Golden Goose Deluxe Brand stores in New York, Milan, Seoul and Tokyo, those lucky enough to head down will rub shoulders with a city-specific influencer guest-list, will get to sample premium Italian cuisine and be treated to DJ talent too, with Vashtie Kola playing in NY, The Perseverence in Italy, Yuka Mizuhara in Tokyo and Plastik Kid in Seoul.
