Designer Stéphane Ashpool has teamed with Converse through his Pigalle label on a collection of the Chuck Taylor Low.
The Chuck 70 comes in two colorways, one a play on Converse’s iconic natural canvas, the other featuring a gradient scheme. Both are created with a technical fuse film atop the canvas, a design element that gives the shoes an aura of future tech and classic style. This supports Ashpool’s desire to merge cultures, which also comes through in his use of Converse footwear to celebrate “the power of music to move the world forward” (a phrase used on the white Chuck 70’s rand) and promote a holistic view of the progressive value of sport and arts.
The kicks will release on the 19th of January. Check converse.com and sneaker boutiques for availability.
