Baroque Velvet Sneakers

Supra's Disney Sneakers Boast Luxurious Materials and Ornate Patterns

— April 5, 2017 — Fashion
Supra is one of the many brands that has launched officially licensed Beauty and the Beast fashions, and its interpretation takes the form of elegant velvet sneakers for women and children.

While the sneakers, especially the matching pairs for kids, do not boast the usual obvious ties to the Disney franchise, they instead opt for a sophisticated style that celebrates elements of the Baroque period.

As many of the costumes and set designs take inspiration from era, the Skytop and Cubana styles boast luxurious velvet as a material and ornate floral patterning. As a result, women and children are able to wear modern footwear styles that take inspiration from the live-action film, without leaving them feeling as though they are wearing a costume from the live-action Beauty and the Beast world.
Trend Themes
1. Baroque-inspired Fashion - Opportunity for designers to incorporate ornate and luxurious elements of the Baroque period into modern fashion.
2. Sophisticated Disney Merchandise - Opportunity for companies to create Disney merchandise that has a more refined and adult-friendly aesthetic.
3. Velvet Footwear - Opportunity to create footwear with the luxurious fabric of velvet for a high-end and fashionable look.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - Baroque-inspired fashion can be incorporated into various clothing and accessory items to appeal to consumers who appreciate opulence and luxury.
2. Merchandise - Creating Disney merchandise that has a more sophisticated aesthetic can attract a wider audience, including adults who are fans of the franchise but prefer a more refined style.
3. Footwear - Using velvet as a material for footwear can create a high-end and luxurious look that appeals to consumers who value fashion and style in their footwear choices.
