Fashion News| Mr Kim Jones x Converse

In his latest sneaker collaboration designer Kim Jones explores a way of maintaining Converse’s origins while adding a cotemporary/street edge to their iconic Chuck Taylors.

The collection also features a nylon, velcro, and mesh Parka jacket that is water-resistant. Crewneck sweatshirts, cargo pants, and t-shirts round out the collection.

“I looked at the Japanese designers readapting American sportswear — recreating that fifties and sixties look. Obviously, Converse was the key shoe within all that stuff. Now, I’m just putting it all together in a different way,” stated Jones in a press release.

 

“The design approach for the shoe was very straightforward- taking a classic shoe and then almost encasing it in something to protect it.”
