FRGMT + 7 MONCLER + CONVERSE
Hiroshi Fujiwara’s FRGMT (Fragment) Design continues its run of sneaker collaboration projects by teaming up with Moncler and Converse for a new project dropping this week. The three design worlds collide for a highly anticipated meeting of the minds. Fragment breaks its longstanding outerwear-based relationship with Moncler to partner and release the exclusive shoe.
Artist Hiroshi Fujiwara is a master of many crafts. A prolific designer, a pioneering disk jockey, and a streetwear legend, he is known as the godfather of Ura-Harajuku style in Japan.
Distinct details are where the design comes alive. Reimagining the Converse Chuck 70 and Jack Purcell silhouettes, the first model is available in both indigo and black colorways, while the latter pair is offered in a lone black makeup, each showcasing the silhouettes’ timeless designs. The collaborators’ logos are printed on the heel tab while Moncler co-branding is featured on the sides of the signature polished midsoles with a bold strikethrough pinstripe.
Aiming at the heart of those with minimalist style, the casual classic features black and white color blocking at its best in the Jack Purcell design.
An ongoing collaboration, the classic Converse is reimagined through the creative lenses of Moncler and Fragment. Reworking the original Chuck Taylor All-Star, Hiroshi Fujiwara’s style is offered in premium details featuring an updated toecap and sole and top-tier cotton.
Available for sale online July 15 at 10 AM EDT via www.converse.com and Moncler boutiques.
