JW Anderson and Converse announced their latest collaboration. Simply_Complex  hones in on the merging of high fashion and street style. While the two brands sit on opposite sides of the fashion spectrum, the collab celebrates the artistry that is born of a meeting such as this. The collection features the Thunderbolt and Chuck 70 styles, which were featured in past partnerships as well.

With a keen focus on materialization, Jonathan aimed to reconstruct these iconic silhouettes to tell a new story. At the start of the collaboration the Thunderbolt caught Jonathan's eye, and now the iconic sneaker has returned in denim and suede iterations. As for the Chuck 70, the imaginative designer was inspired by the traditional brown menswear shoe and when it came time to execute his design he stated, "We approached it as a sneaker first but introduced detailed elements and the suede execution that make it a sort of curious version of Chuck, ultimately constructing the silhouette as a statement shoe.”

Check out the collection below, which will be available in stores and online March 2nd.
