Converse and London boutique Footpatrol rekindle their collaborative partnership to tackle one of the cornerstones of contemporary style, the collegiate look, whose timeless versatility, understated confidence and the lasting popularity of college athletics have people repping various Bulldogs, Tigers and Wildcats, among others, long after their mortarboards have been thrown skyward.
Old-school icons, the Chuck Taylor and the Jack Purcell are natural choices to highlight a collegiate sportswear inspired look. Not only are these signature models an essential component of casual, collegiate style, but they’ve been around long enough to see action in genuine competition as well.
Inspired by the colors and textures of the unquestionable centerpiece of any self respecting collegiate outfit, the school sweatshirt, these collaborative editions of the Chuck 70 and Jack Purcell feature asymmetrical color application on a classic, canvas make-up, with old-school inspired branding details putting the finishing touches on a design with playbook perfect execution.
The vintage athletic vibes of Converse and Footpatrol's latest joint effort are replicated in this accompanying pullover hoodie. Chenille, varsity letter and classic athletic block text branding are applied to an asymmetrical patchwork construction with visible stitching, which gives one half of the design, the appearance of being turned inside out.
