It is often the case that the most forward-thinking designs in fashion—as in other art forms—are not completely novel, but pull and push past shapes, styles, and apparatuses in the service of something at once familiar and groundbreaking. Such is the approach of sought-after British designer Kim Jones. The Dior menswear designer continues a run of coveted sportswear collaborations, this time with Converse. With this new collaboration, a line of elevated sportswear-inspired apparel pieces accompanies the conceptually rich yet simple reimagining of the Chuck Taylor 70, in black and white.
The Converse x Kim Jones KJ Crewneck is a staple crewneck sweatshirt cut from a soft, mid-weight cotton sweatshirt jersey. True to the Dior designer’s trademark approach, this sweat subtly plays with the proportions of the classic crewneck sweat with a wide, curved raglan sleeve. Here in a deep iris/navy colourway, this sweatshirt also features a ribbed triangle insert underneath the neckline; a Converse flag label at the side seam; Kim Jones branding screen-printed on the left sleeve; embroidered Converse chevron star logo on the left sleeve; and wide ribbing at the crew neckline, cuffs, and bottom hem.
Made from 100% cotton.
