Converse introduces Converse Essentials, an apparel collection comprised of durable, high quality everyday basics that get better with time. Each piece is constructed from natural color-faded fabric with long-term wear, durable stitching, and a managed shrinkage fit that remains the same throughout its lifespan, thus offering the highest level of comfort and fit.
In support of Converse Essentials, stylist Bonne Reijn has curated and creative directed a visual presentation for this collection featuring the SMIB collective and Texas Schiffmacher. Both SMIB and Texas are Amsterdam-based young creative minds in the fields of music, fashion, art and photography, actively involved and contributing to the local scene. Armed with analog film and a video camera, Texas created an editorial, documenting the Converse Essentials collection as sported by the distinct SMIB members Grgy, Ray Fuego and Tirino, in their daily operations from the streets to the stage, and everything in between.
The Converse Essentials collection will be available at Patta Amsterdam this Sunday, October 16th.
