Converse X Babylon collection
Converse has joined forces with local Los Angeles creative brand, Babylon for a collection that is the pinnacle expression of creativity, culture and youth spirit. Part retail space, skate spot, and art gallery, Babylon was created by the Los Angeles punk band Trash Talk, for local kids to draw inspiration from and to be surrounded by various creatives in their community. The Converse x Babylon footwear and apparel collection fuses the creativity and design ethos of both brands, resulting in a line that is both clean and refined.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Babylon footwear boasts all recognizable features of the debut Chuck IIsilhouette – most noticeably, the tencel canvas upper. Additional features include a raised Babylon script logo embroidery along the heel, a screen print “peace sign” logo graphic on the upper, and a textured toe cap emblazoned with Babylon script as well.
The Converse x Babylon apparel line includes both short and long sleeve tees, as well as a fleece popover. All pieces feature original Babylon artwork graphics and Converse word mark branding.
The new Converse x Babylon collection will all be available on February 3, 2017, exclusively from www.converse.com.au, Converse Emporium, Capsule, Up There Store and Supply Store with footwear at RRP $140 each and apparel ranging from RRP $35-$80.
