Where are all our sneakerheads at? Converse and American hip hop star Tyler the Creator’s creative partnership returns this Holiday 2018 with a One Star, Apparel, and—for the first time— a Chuck 70 capsule inspired by the rugged, raw charm of parchment and burlap!
As the story goes, Tyler the Creator began reinterpreting the Converse One Star in the summer of 2017, introducing his flower-shaped motif to the silhouette that has come to define the signature GOLF le FLEUR* collection. At times a bold interpretation of two-tone suede and at others a subdued palette of monochrome hues, Tyler’s creative choices lend his distinct point of view on style to the signature sneaker.
Now, the collaborative GOLF le FLEUR* once again enters a new chapter. Tyler the Creator and Converse have expanded the Flower Boy beyond the sneaker’s signature floral design by creating a burlap One Star and, for the first time, a Chuck 70 capsule in burlap and vintage parchment canvas. As Tyler the Creator’s relationship with Converse has evolved, so has his choice of sneaker staples. The Chuck 70, a modern ode to the Chuck Taylor as it was in 1971, reflects the collection’s–and the artist’s–ongoing sartorial evolution.
The burlap-inspired aesthetic carries onto the capsule’s accompanying apparel, an open weave fabric anorak in Curry and Natural.
Now, listen carefully: The Converse and Tyler the Creator’s GOLF le FLEUR* collab collection will be available exclusively at Commonwealth PH's Rockwell branch starting November 17! That's in two days, so you'd better get ready to queue!
