Opening Ceremony and Artist Richard Saja for Keds Sneakers



    Opening Ceremony

    Here's yet another reason to step out into the fray for the uber-juggernaut that Fashion's Night Out already promises to be: Opening Ceremony's latest collaboration with kicks-maker Keds, set to debut that night, are some of the best designs we've seen yet.  

    For their newest installment, OC enlisted NYC-based artist Richard Saja, known for reimagining classical toile-printed fabrics with whimsical embroideries of colorful characters, creatures and unlikely objects, to create a series of limited-edition prints.

    The collaboration is in pitch-perfect tune with the retailer's "USA vs. France" lineup this year, as toile print was first popularized by French queen Marie-Antoinette back in the late-1700s. We think she'd agree, these sneaks are tres charmants.
