More than ever, fashion brands are putting aside season-related traditions around fabrics and color stories, a trend reflected with Converse and Tyler the Creator‘s latest sneaker capsule that makes use of crushed velvet, traditionally viewed as a holiday-friendly textile.
Making use of Converse’s One Star and Chuck 70 silhouettes, both feature a quilted velvet upper offered in red, brown or purple. As with prior collections, the shoes are detailed with Tyler Golf le Fleur flower motif. The shoes come with two sets of laces, white or coordinated crushed velvet.
The drop also includes a tote bag offered in the same colors as the sneakers.
Converse and Tyler the Creator’s velvet capsule will launch on May 17, 2019 on converse.com.
