Converse has joined forces once again with fragment design, and this time around Hiroshi Fujiwara has chosen to rework the Chuck Taylor All Star ’70, which is unveiled in four colorways as part of the “Tuxedo” pack. The shoe’s defining feature is an upper made with the sort of premium suiting twill found on a traditional tux, available in Striped, Black, Grey and White colorways. Details include a satin heel and a single black stripe on the lace aglet, standing in for a tuxedo lapel and bow tie. The white colorway, made for women, features subtle lacy detailing on the heel, mimicking the material of a wedding gown.
Retailing for $120 per pair, the fragment design x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 “Tuxedo” pack launches this Thursday, February 16, at Converse stores, select retailers and converse.com.
Release Date: 2/16/17 (Thursday)
