Converse, the ever timeless and iconic shoe brand, recently took part in an incredible collaboration with designer JW Anderson. Unlike Converse, Anderson’s brand is known for its’ unconventional and thought provoking designs that consistently push on the confines of the high fashion world. According to Anderson, “Converse and JW Anderson exist at opposite ends of the fashion spectrum but together, the two brands provide a juxtaposition of masculinity and femininity, creating a unique tension between style and culture.” Although these brands might as well be as different as yin and yang, the collaboration demonstrates that two seemingly opposite design types have the ability to compliment one another in highly captivating ways. Through this joint project, the two brands were able prove that in order to create something truly new and special, it is critical that opposing forces work together and explore the space that exists between them.
