Year: 2009

This anniversary project was unique for Patta in the sense that we also partnered with musicians as a first party, tying in with Converse's rich history of involving artists with sportswear and fashion. Amsterdam-based music trio Le Le (Faberyayo, Rimer London & Parra) were fully involved in the creating process. The Pro Leather sports a corduroy upper with quilted lining, while the Chuck Taylor is the polar opposite with a quilted suede upper and corduroy lining. Furthermore, the Chuck Taylor we worked on is a 60's vintage shape with higher rands and midsole without the usual pinstripe, creating a more classic look. Not only did the pack contain the iconic Pro Leather and Chuck Taylor silhouettes, it also featured a reversible varsity jacket in matching corduroy/quilt fleece, as well as a limited edition 12" vinyl single containing 2 new Le Le tracks and their respective instrumentals: "We Are Le Le" and "Slotmachine". I directed a 4-part series documenting this collaboration.
