Replay Goes Vintage for Its 2016 Spring/Summer "Replica Scatto 1972" Capsule Collection
Past and present collide in these sleek new silhouettes.
Inspired by a tour through the archives of an artisanal workshop specialized in the production of bespoke cleats, Replica’s 2016 spring/summer capsule collection is a culmination of timeless aesthetics and premium construction. Entitled “Replica Scatto 1972,” the new program is named after the ‘Scatto,’ which is a professional athletic shoe entirely crafted by hand in the early 1970’s. As a perfect union of form and function, each model in the series is designed with performance in mind, while still maintaining artisanal refinement and styled creativity. Comprised of both men’s and women’s footwear, the “Full Leather” and “Avant-Garde” models are specifically introduced with the female wearer in mind.
The “Full Leather” boasts a sleek design rendered with premium materials, which complements the lush neutral palette of cream tones and pastel hues. A metallic silver heel collar provides contrasting details, while seamless topstitching provides subtle accents. In contrast, the “Avant-Garde” utilizes stark oppositions of both color and materials. Integrating iridescent layers into matte segments, the sneaker is as eye-catching as it is unique. Captured in stunning lifestyle imagery by photographer and influencer Lina Tesch, the dynamic designs of the new silhouettes truly come front and center. You can shop the “Replica Scatto 1972” capsule now at Replay’s webstore.
