Ariana Daventi - Australian Artist Interview


Hapsari Listya
January 14, 2023

Ariana @arianadaventii is an Australian artist who finds it interesting to mix streetwear with high fashion. As she is always on the hunt for minimalistic sneakers, she wants to get Balenciaga's Triple S in each color someday!

Could you share a bit about your secret origin story? (Tell us a bit about yourself, how did you start loving sneakers, what you do/hobbies etc.)

I am a Sydney-based artist and performer, working on some exciting projects for the future, such as songwriting, designing outfits, and preparing for the release of my first album. The rise of urban fashion in the past few years significantly impacted how I view sneakers, accelerating the love for something that can be so cool and comfortable simultaneously.

In my opinion, the most exciting part of this trend is the implementation of sneakers into Haute couture, mixing streetwear with high fashion. In the past year, I have been working on my first album, which is yet to be released, so, therefore, my focus over the past few weeks has been on the visual achievements for this project.

Despite that, I have been working on my social media, taking pictures for Instagram, and spending time in nature whenever possible.

What's your current favorite pair of sneakers?

At this moment, my favorite pair of sneakers are these black Love Moschino sock sneakers.

What drew you to this particular pair of sneakers?

I really like the design of the shoes, the details and of course the comfort that comes with them.

What’s your personal sneaker collecting philosophy?

First, I focus on the design of the specific sneaker. My choice is either something very minimalistic or a piece with many highly unique details. And of course, since we are talking about sneakers, the second important thing is whether they are comfortable or not.

Your dream hype sneaker you wish to acquire but don't have so far.

My dream-hype sneakers would definitely be Balenciaga’s Triple S. I would like to have them in each color possible.

What's your day-to-day style like?

I would describe it as a constant war between feeling comfortable and something that irritates you when you move, feels heavy, uncomfortable, and so on. But that is something to be expected when you experiment with fashion and treat it differently than others, add to that my job, which requires me to change and evolve constantly, and you can guess what day-to-day styling looks like.

Lockdowns and the pandemic have made us shift towards anything flat, comfortable, and baggy, which is what streetwear stands for. Therefore now I am often practicing streetwear fashion, and it feels fantastic!
