Converse X Shrimps
Known for creating unique, beautifully crafted pieces characterized by spirited patterns and textures, London-based fashion label Shrimps continues the exploration of color and graphics with a relaxed yet elegant collection with Converse. Shrimps’ creative director Hannah Weiland blends the classic, versatile aesthetic of the Converse brand with the feminine, lux sophistication of Shrimps for a collection that expands on notions of modern, feminine street style.
The collection is centered around the Chuck 70 and One Star silhouettes. The brand’s signature Shrimps’ faces and romantic rose print are present throughout the collection, perfect for the fashion-forward consumer who isn’t afraid to mix and match different styles..
The One Star features a powder pink upper with a matching pink rubber outsole, defined by screen printed Barbados-cherry colored graphics and a hint of Hannah’s signature powder pink faux fur on the heel stay.
The Chuck 70 Hi materializes on a vintage white canvas with layers of screen-printed black graphic prints on the black rubber midsole and finished with a black faux fur heel stay.
The collection launches on December 13 at Sandton City and Mall Of Africa Converse stores.
