J.W. Anderson and Converse Debut Second “Glitter Gutter” Collection

Irish designer J.W. Anderson closes his hallmark 2017 with a second footwear release alongside American staple Converse. Championing adoring aesthetics through his namesake brand and annual offerings with French minimalist, A.P.C., Anderson reveals his sophomore Converse collection with the same contemporary juxtaposition that anchored his first.

Expressing a sentiment that helps blur that lines of traditional gender roles, Anderson’s “Glitter Gutter” collection canvasses the Chuck Taylor and Thunderbolt 84 silhouettes in flashy glitter seen through opposing, color blocked paneling. There’s also the inclusion of the Chuck ’70 Vintage U-Throat Ballet, which adorns a black execution set to a green contrast.

Expect the J.W. Anderson x Converse “Glitter Gutter” Collection on December 14 at select global retailers and on Converse.com.

Converse, Slam Jam and Cali Thornhill Dewitt Releasing the Urban Utility Collection


Converse Slam Jam Urban Utility Collection

Converse along with Slam Jam and Cali Thornhill Dewitt has unveiled their new Urban Utility Collection which includes the Chuck ’70 Hiker (the original Chuck Taylor All Star reconstructed as a GORE-TEX hiker) and Converse Jump Boot (a Jack Purcell-style ode to paratrooper footwear).

The capsule is inspired by a generation that rallies around community and freedom of expression, and for whom functionality means nothing if it’s creatively limiting. Dewitt’s graphics, formed of his notorious all-caps punk-style lettering and translated into English, Farsi, Italian, Korean, French, Russian and Hebrew, aims to deliver a powerful message. It may seem in contrast to the starkness of the Urban Utility aesthetic but serves to balance ideas of freedom of motion and freedom of thought.

The 17-piece capsule collection is built with cross-seasonality in mind and features layering options from short-sleeve Converse Essentials jersey tees and long sleeve thermals and hoodies to the pinnacle men’s GORE-TEX® Utility Jacket.

The Converse x Slam Jam x Cali Thornhill Dewitt Urban Utility Collection will release at select Converse retailers including Converse.com on December 5th.
