For its latest collaborative partnership, Converse enlists three rising designers: KOCHÉ, Faith Connexion and Feng Chen Wang. The designers were tasked with reimagining Converse through pillars that their brand stays true to. This led to a comprehensive collection of women’s apparel, footwear and accessories. The collaboration also marks Feng Chen Wang’s first womenswear capsule.
The range features numerous footwear silhouettes pulling from the brand’s DNA across basketball, court and utility. The basketball origin is seen in the Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 and ERX silhouettes by Feng Chen Wang. The utility inclination is interpreted through a punk aesthetic seen in the One Star and the new Run Star footwear design by Faith Connexion. The court inspiration rings loudly through the canvas Jack Purcell shoe and the new Converse Mary Rina models by Koché.
The apparel features elements of sport, music, fashion and art, including new styles and cuts that champion a new era of women’s streetstyle. The pieces are made up of a multi-colored tracksuit, graphic-heavy separates and eccentric tops.
The Converse by Koché x Feng Chen Wang x Faith Connexion capsule collection will be available on April 26 at Converse.com/uk and at select retailers. Additionally, in partnership with Browns, Converse will host a pop-up in London’s Soho at 54 – 57 Marlborough Street on April 26-27.
