At Copenhagen Fashion Week SS24, GANNI showcased their second collaboration with New Balance on Thursday August 10th, launching a limited-edition trio of sneakers based on the classic 1906R and RC30 silhouettes. The affordable luxury brand put a fresh spin on the iconic designs for a unique touch.
To mark the occasion, the two brands celebrated by hosting a memorable fashion week closing party at Apollo Bar. There, guests enjoyed an energetic atmosphere supplied by local musicians Adidadi and Are We On Air Arman Naféei. Dancing on tables and singing along to the infectious beats, it was a truly joyous night that will be remembered for a long time.
The innovative partnership between GANNI and New Balance is a reflection of their mutual aspiration for artistic expression and responsibility. Following the triumph of their prior collaboration, the new line of designs will entice fashion lovers with inventive concepts and eye-catching aesthetics.
“We are so hyped to be launching our second collaboration with the New Balance team. Honestly, we have had so much fun working on this, there is such a creative synergy between us and a lot of mutual respect for what we both bring to the table. Collaboration is such a source of energy for me, I love working with people and finding new creative heights together. I can’t wait to go dancing in these!”
The beloved cartoonist Suerynn Lee graced the GANNI campaign with her Brooklyn-based, New York Times style of artistry. Giving energy to the endeavor, her playful illustrations feature GANNI Creative Director Ditte Reffstrup and New Balance ambassador and tennis superstar Coco Gauff. The images depict classic recreations and everyday athletics, and can be seen on billboards in Copenhagen, London and New York City.
