Superga has tapped brand ambassador Suki Waterhouse to design a capsule collection for fall ’14.

The British model, who was cast as the face of the line for spring ’14, created three flatform styles featuring heart imprints on the sides of the soles. Available in pastel pink, powder blue and a red-and-navy combination, Waterhouse’s designs will hit stores at the end of August.

“I am very excited about the launch of my new collection with Superga. I really enjoyed creating for the brand and adding a piece of myself into the designs,” said Waterhouse, who also stars in Burberry’s fall ’14 campaign alongside Cara Delevingne.

Founded in 1911 by Walter Martiny, Superga has ramped up its celebrity presence in recent years, with campaigns featuring Alexa Chung and Rita Ora, and designer collaborations with Henry Holland and Giles Deacon.
