VERSACE LAUNCHED THE TRIGRECA SNEAKER
Drop 1 of the brand’s new Trigreca sneaker was launched on October 1st. First seen on the Fall-Winter 2020 runway, the style steps up the already impressive Versace footwear edit. Encompassing iconic brand codes, the design is unmistakably Versace.
The Trigreca draws inspiration from the brand’s Greca pattern. A celebration of Versace’s Magna Graecia heritage, the symbol was first used in the Fall-Winter 1988 Collection. The Greca is a geometric pattern created from one, uninterrupted line. The motif was historically seen in many ancient Greek temples, representations of labyrinths, buildings and in pottery – especially from the Geometric period. Symbolizing infinity and unity, it reflects a recurring theme in Versace creations. The Greca pattern adorns three points of the Trigreca sneaker: the dimensional sole, the midsole and the decorative upper toe stripe.
The design’s cork "Greca Cushioning System" adds support and comfort, as well as providing chunky elevation. To celebrate the brand’s HQ location, Milan’s geographical coordinates are printed along the upper. There’s also a hidden 3D Medusa located in the sole – another iconic signature of the brand.
Black, white, green, blue and red versions of the sneaker will launch on October 1st, exclusively on Versace.com and in selected Versace boutiques. The brand will partner with e-commerce retail platform ssense.com on a wider launch with added colorways in November.
