Converse is hoping to bring a playful energy to 2021 with an incredible list of collaborators. Today the brand, which was one of the most traded labels on the resell market in 2020, has announced its lineup of collaborations for the new year, one that includes some of the biggest names in fashion.

Through collaboration, Converse welcomes “new thought, new vision, new purpose, new energy and new intention,” said VP of Footwear Brandis Russell. “An important value of Converse is one that respects, honors and wants to continue to foster creativity. Inviting in the collective genius continues to breed innovation for us,” she continued. “Our brand has been a positive agitator in really critical moments in culture. Today we want to assure that our creative impulse, and that of our partners, has an intention attached to it.”

This year, Converse will be releasing collections with the likes of Kim Jones, Telfar Clemens, COMME des GARÇONS PLAY, Off-White™, Tyler, the Creator, Bandulu, and Chinatown Market.

“For my upcoming collaboration with Converse, I was really interested in the functionality of the design. And making something that was Ivy League via the ’90s and in a preppy American way with grunge elements — and exploring the reality of this, but also the functionality," said Kim Jones.

With COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse, you can look forward to affordable sneakers that appeal to a diverse community, while the Telfar collab will be led by non-gendered footwear.

“Our collaborators are always helping us to be more playful and a little less serious,” Russell added. “You can do that and still celebrate heritage; take a new stance and hold a position.”

This is all we have on Converse's 2021 collaborations for now, but be sure to check back with us for more info on these respective projects as they become available.
