Abbey Lee Kershaw was given 'freedom' to create range for Superga

Abbey Lee Kershaw agreed to curate a collection for Superga because they gave her complete "creative freedom".

The 28-year-old actress-and-model has teamed up with the Italian fashion brand to create a range for autumn/winter 2016 and she loved being able to share her style ideas with the design team.

Speaking to Refinery29, she said: "Superga allow creative freedom which included selecting the team I worked with and this interest in my input was hugely attractive for me because it's something I've never done before ... Superga is so respectful of the creative process. They allow freedom and pretty much complete control so I really enjoyed it. I like to wear heels when I need to feel strong and sexy - it's pretty much exclusive to my work. Personally I never wear heels, only boots or trainers or slides."

Abbey - who starred as The Dag in Oscar-winning movie 'Mad Max: Fury Road' last year - admits her collection has a "boyish" spin because she's always enjoyed wearing men's clothes and mixing up garments to create her look.

She said: "My style changes a lot but for the most part I've always had quite a boyish spin on how I dress which is largely related to comfort. It makes Superga a perfect shoe for me.

Superga, as a brand, cherished her creative input and relaxed style.

In a statement, the company said: "Abbey Lee is very talented and a true creative. She has ruled the catwalks for years and is loved by everyone in fashion, now she's the rising star of the film industry. Her unique and relaxed style is something we cherish and she's shown us again how talented and passionate she is when she got involved in the creative process. We always look for the most talented and promising names to work with, she really is that and more."
