Mary-Kate And Ashley Announced As Creative Directors Of Superga : MYDaily UK

As if having two successful clothing collections wasn't enough (as well as a whole host of TV shows, films, books and merchandise under their skinny belts) Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have just been announced as the new creative directors of sports shoe company Superga.

The Italian plimsolls brand, owned by Steve Madden Ltd, has enjoyed a resurgence of late - thanks to famous fans such as Alexa Chung - but this new signing should ensure the company is firmly back on the fashion map.
