CONVERSE & FRAGMENT DESIGN
Converse continues their partnership with Hiroshi Fujiwara (Head Designer Fragment) for this premium collection on the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 silhouette. The defining feature across the four styles is an upper made of premium suiting twill to mirror the tuxedo match.
Hiroshi would like to offer “the sneakers that go with your tuxedo and dress”. A satin heel and a singular black stripe on the lace aglet, representing the sneaker equivalents of both a tuxedo lapel and bow tie. Striped, black or grey are the male options, while the slick female version in white features subtle lace detailing on the heel stay, mimicking the material of a wedding gown. Other details are a co-branded sock liner and license plate, as well as a canvas interior paying a nod to Converse’s heritage.
