Converse X Brain Dead One Star

Converse and Los Angeles natives Brain Dead continue their collaborative efforts. Moving from their mismatched madness of the 70’s Chuck Taylor to the One Star. The duo have given the same panelled treatment of heritage Converse patterns in a mixture of premium suedes merging polka dots, zebras, and leopard together atop the vintage One Star silhouette.

Pairs will release tomorrow, Thursday the 7th of February with pairs releasing in store from 11am and any remaining pairs hitting our online store later the same day.

Sizes US7 through to US12 (whole sizes only) will be available for $150AUD.

Until tomorrow, we’ll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump...

Converse X Brain Dead

Converse and Brain Dead come together on a capsule collection bringing Brain Dead's signature graphic designs and bold prints together with an archive of patterns mashed up atop the 1970's Chuck Taylor.

Converse’s first graphic pattern was introduced in 1983, a camouflage print applied to the Chuck Taylor All Star. Glow-in-the-dark animal prints followed in 1988, and a patriotic American Flag print in 1992. Brain Dead have taken to these archives mixing and matching them against the 1970's silhouette. These prints were mashed together to create a bold and energizing graphic statement that connects to designer Kyle Ng’s vision that his brand 'Is Not One Person, Nor Is It One Idea'.

The collection, anchored in Converse graphic prints, is interpreted across footwear, apparel and accessories, which are stylized as if they were a mix of fabrics and prints seen scattered on a factory floor. Each pair features asymmetrical screen printing on the upper and text detail on foxing tape that reads: ═×To see and be seen as far as the eye can see. Who Controls the Control Men.

Alongside the 1970's Chuck Taylor, sits a long sleeve and short sleeve duo of graphic tees.

The collection will release this coming Friday the 26th of October. Releasing from 11am at our Lower Grounds Basement 15 McKillop Street store. Remaining pairs will be available online later the same day.

The Chuck Taylor will be available in sizes US7 through to US12 (whole sizes only) for $140AUD.

Short sleeve tees will be $60AUD, and long sleeve tees $70AUD in sizes S to XL.

Until Friday, head on over after the jump for all of the finer details of the release...
