NYC-based boutique Extra Butter is returning to its cinephile roots with their upcoming collaboration with Italian sportswear brand Diadora. Following up their 2016 release dubbed “Giallo“, Extra Butter once again looks toward the Italian horror genre for their S.8000 design, specifically using Dario Argento’s classic film Suspiria from 1977 to inform the design selections.
This upcoming release mirrors the standout pink and purple shades utilized throughout the film, while the stained glass – a key visual in the film – is placed on the tongue label. Furthermore, Extra Butter nods to the broken glass scene with their eerie photoshoot for this collaboration. The same glass patterns are featured on the custom shoe-box that houses the footwear. The silhouette itself is built with soft pigskin suede and leather, promising a high quality offering backed by an applause-worthy concept.
The Extra Butter x Diadora S8000 “Giallo 2.0” and EB apparel collection will release on on January 27th 11AM EST in-store at Extra Butter, and online at extrabutterny.com on Saturday, January 28th at 9AM EST.
