NIKE - Cali Thornhill Sewitt gives artistic statement to Converse and Slam Jam’s radical collaboration

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Converse’s new Urban Utility collection delivers a series of structured staples that form a monotone utilitarian look that catapults the brand into contemporary street #fashion.

The pieces, highlighted by the Utility Jacket (made from three-layer nylon waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® fabric with fully sealed seams), 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) are introduced through a radical collaboration between #converse, Italian streetwear powerhouse #slamjam and artist Cali Thornhill Dewitt.

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.
