A Converse and Moncler collaboration by way of a Japanese streetwear guru
These Chuck 70 sneakers, designed by Hiroshi Fujiwara, will be available from Sep 1.
Japanese streetwear designer Hiroshi Fujiwara has teamed up with Converse on two pairs of the Chuck 70 low sneakers as part of his 7 Moncler Fragment line.
This is the first collaboration between the two brands.
The collection, known as 7 Moncler Fragment + Converse Chuck 70, comes in a black and a white version.
They will be available from Sep 1 at Moncler boutiques and online at moncler.com, then at converse.com as well as select boutiques and retailers from Sep 3.
Fujiwara is the founder of Fragment Design and is an influential figure in the world of streetwear culture. He’s also known as one of the founding fathers of Tokyo’s Harajuku scene.
His minimalist design on the classic Chuck 70 low features contrast stitching to animate the silhouette, and both Fragment's lightning bolt and the Moncler insignia on the heel.
