Converse and JW Anderson have teamed up on a limited edition capsule collection. The space between JW Anderson’s forward-thinking design and the iconic, made-for-everyone Converse sneaker allows the two to celebrate and explore the provocative, daring space of their opposing ideas and complementary ideals.
Anderson uses vintage-inspired details and unexpected materials to design the collection’s three attention-getting silhouettes.The Chuck ’70 is the main silhouette but there are also the Thunderbolt and the Ballet.
“GLITTER_GUTTER stemmed from the idea of breaking iconic silhouettes with something unexpected,” says designer Jonathan Anderson. “Taking the glitter out of context and wearing it with a pair of washed chinos, for example.”
