Step into the shadows with blacked-out steeze courtesy of the latest collaboration between Converse and NEIGHBORHOOD.
Standing amongst the titans of streetwear as one of the most coveted brands on the international scene is NEIGHBORHOOD, reigning from Japan armed with an iconic, dark, grungy aesthetic. With an aesthetic perfectly matches to the heritage builds of Converse's classic silhouettes and essential apparel pieces, the two brands have had a long-standing relationship, offering up a series of hard-hitting collaborations that have built momentum and flown of shelves time after time. With such a strong collaborative history at their backs, it was only natural that Autumn/Winter would welcome the next stage in their joint venture, with their latest reunion doubling down on NEIGHBORHOODS signature vibes.
This drop sees NEIGHBORHOOD's Shinsuke Takizawa remix the Chuck 70 and Jack Purcel with a bold sense of attitude, dipping both silhouettes in a monochrome palette with additional utilitarian details suited to the darker part of the year. Alongside both footwear silhouettes is an impressive apparel arsenal, comprised of tees, hoodies, vests, shorts, pants, and accessories that maintain the black and white colouring. Graphics feature heavily throughout the apparel component of the drop, with co-branding reinterpreted with an edgy, masonic vibe.
