Designer Paria Farzaneh teams up with Converse. The collaboration between the two shows the London-based creative exploring her own Iranian roots combined with current elements of inspiration, translated into an utilitarian Pro Leather X2.
The shape reflects the typical Converse's silhouette, that gets enriched by a modern utility look given by tactical details and outdoor-inspired sole. Also, the reflective paisley print highlights the designer’s signature. The result expresses how daily life and movement evolve, exploiting heritage and modern style with practical functions.
Slam Jam investigated the concept behind the collaboration through an artwork series realized by Italian young artist Nicola Novello, featuring personal memories from the designer’s own archive.
