The 90s were a colorful time for designer wear with the likes of Ralph Lauren and United Colors of Benetton embracing the bold use of multi-colors. Japan based Beams is channeling the era with a collab edition of the Diadora N9000. The playful combination of colors is applied on the silhouette’s layers of suede, nubuck and mesh. The kicks are released on the 30th of January through Beams alongside some some lower-key sportswear.
Brooklyn based Futura is adding to his collaborative roster with editions of the recently minted Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star II. The comfort focused revision of the Chuck Taylor is given a fresh build in a weather resistant ripstop. Futura adds gritty graphics to the uppers that layer camo and geometric patterns on the high top. For the Ox Edition, the look is more subtle in a solid base with geometric pattern elements. The kicks hit shops on the 1st of February.
Last year, Converse connected with the Andy Warhol Foundation to create a collection of the Chuck Taylor imprinted with Warhol’s art.
To celebrate the coming Chinese New Year and the Year of the Monkey, Hong Kong based CLOT has joined the Converse x Andy Warhol collaboration. The end result is a four piece pack that includes both Hi and Ox cut editions of the Chuck Taylor. A Stylized pink infused print of Warhol’s banana piece is placed on the silhouettes in a choice of black or white.
In addition to the kicks, the Converse x Andy Warhol x CLOT print is placed t-shirts and a bucket hat. The collection went live on Converse.com.cn on the 21st of January.
