British designer J.W. Anderson‘s last collaboration with Converse was a glittering success and it seems like the two brands will be joining forces once more – this time it includes a more unconventional silhouette.
The “Simply_Complex” collection will debut a reimagined Thunderbolt sneaker alongside the classic Chuck Taylor 70 and where last time, the focus was on on logo-mania and glittery uppers, this time the key details lie in texture and material. The Thunderbolt will arrive in two asymmetric styles – one in an on-trend raw indigo denim fabric and another in a tonal beige/light brown suede colorway.
The light tan Chuck Taylor 70s take on a “flesh out” leather effect, which means that they have a suede outer and a leather-lined inner. Alongside the regular style is a pair of calf-high lace-ups in the same colorway. To celebrate the launch of “Simply_Complex”, the brand enlisted Kids director Larry Clark to direct the trailer in Marseille, France.
Peep the campaign in the gallery and check out the official trailer below. The collection is set to drop on Converse.com and in J.W. Anderson stores on March 2 – stay tuned for the J.W.Anderson x Uniqlo collaboration too.
