Coming Soon: Converse x A Cold Wall*

Converse & Samuel Ross‘s A-COLD-WALL* have collaborated for a technical capsule collection of footwear and apparel. This collection was initially previewed in June 2019 during ACW’s SS20 runway during London Fashion Week, displaying reconstructions of the Chuck Taylor All-Star Lugged and ERX.

According to Converse, the collection’s ethos was based around one simple question: “how does a collaboration relay intent?” Samuel Ross’ intent was clearly to further ACW’s signature look, asymmetrical detailing, compelling material choices and a muted color palette that insures focus on the design rather than the color palate.

The Chuck Taylor All Star Lugged is a weatherized version of the classic Chuck, and Ross’s take on it toes the line between sneaker and boot with a thick rubber outsole and toe bumper plus overlays that rise up onto the woven ripstop upper. An inner bootie provides warmth and lockdown, while ACW and Converse branding is placed on each piece. Elsewhere, the ERX looks to its basketball heritage with a full patinated suede build, a large collar strap and a stripped-back lacing system. This simple-yet-effective upper rests atop an icy blue midsole to finalize the style. Rounding off the offerings are two tracksuits, one with a traditional basketball cut and one with more asymmetrical detailing that’s sure to please ACW purists.

New Brand: Keiser Clark

Keiser Clark—the Los Angeles-based ready-to-wear label founded in late 2017 by Marc Keiser and Andrew Clark—holds a distinct approach to clothing design and fabrication.

Its aesthetic is fueled by a gritty nocturnal glamour, but it goes beyond dive-bar leathers and warehouse rave jeans. The brand’s allure is in its wearable intent, cut and whittled with a pocketknife’s edge. As Keiser says, the emergent identity of Keiser Clark consists of “a range of pieces with varying levels of intensity, boldness and aggressiveness.” In this, there is a deeply personal sentiment of past remembrances and anecdotes; beneath the label’s visual edge, a human instinct flourishes, promoting connection and community.

The origin story of the brand is rooted in an experimental sensibility, with Keiser and Clark creating one-off leather jackets in Los Angeles starting in 2016. Keiser was finishing law school at the time (he’d pass the bar exam, but then dedicated himself to his burgeoning fashion line). Slowly, the two began lending these jackets to friends, who in turn would post the garments on social media. The pieces caught on; stylists started requesting the jackets, and the interest pushed Keiser and Clark to spend 2017 formulating their concept. In 2018, they presented their first full collection—Autumn/Winter 2019—at Paris Fashion Week. From that lineup came a powerful sense of self; it etched the grid-work for Keiser Clark’s premise (and promise) going forward.

Coming Soon: Converse x Fragment x Moncler

Introducing the next edition in the ongoing partnership between Converse and streetwear legend Hiroshi Fujiwara, elevated through the bold lens of the Moncler Genius project. Showing artistic restraint and sophistication, this take on the Chuck 70 makes a statement through minimalist design and black and white color blocking. Simple touches like contrast stitching on black canvas and camouflage on white stand out, but the real heavy lifting is done by the marks on the heel. finished with a vintage co-branded license plate and Pro Leather wordmark. Three style legends. One shoe. It’s an iconic collaboration.

New Brand: Children of Discordance

This week we welcome Tokyo’s own, Children of Discordance to Wish ATL. Children of Discordance was established by Hideaki Shikama in 2011. The up-cycled pieces that he’s become famous for are inspired by recollections of fashion and music from the 90s to the present. Shikama has updated and up-cycled items from his personal collection of archives and vintage pieces, sourced worldwide. His usage of vintage materials and deadstock approaches sustainability in a way that doesn’t feel forced. The environment isn’t his sole concern; focusing on respect for craftsmen, creators, and producers while designing ethically. This has been achieved by working beyond the concept of fair trade for production that creates the sophisticated one off products expressing the attitude of “DISCORDANCE”.

Coming Soon: Jordan V “Purple Grape”

The Jordan 5 made its first appearance in 1990 with three OG colorways: black/metallic silver, fire red/white & grape ice/white. The Jordan 5 is just as popular now as it was three decades ago, but the grape colorway stand solo as the only look that strays away from a team-oriented color scheme. Since the integration of purple in the Jordan 5, we’ve seen it in various way in the past, but never like this.

The deep purple suede covers the entire upper, with complimenting black accents along the tongue, laces, mudguard & sole. There are also a couple of contrasting splashes emerald green that helps to bring the whole look together.
