Converse x Shrimps Take You On A Hell Of A Ride
Fake fur meets real design.
When Hannah Weiland founded her own label while studying at the London College of Fashion, she had no idea that her vision would soon be symbolic of a change in the fashion world. Not so long ago the Status Quo was still incontrovertible: In high fashion the fur has to be real.
Her label Shrimps has managed to establish Fake Fur for elegant design ideas and to sell real fur from the runways. Colorful fake fur has found its way into the world of high fashion and founder Weiland was supported early by familiar faces and names.
With Converse, the first sportswear-focused Collab from Shrimps is born, filled with the visions and well-known motifs of the London label and complemented with the iconic silhouettes of the US brand.
The Converse x Shrimps Capsule Collection includes two styles of classic Converse sneakers in addition to different streetwear ideas for women. The Chuck 70 and the One Star are re-invented by Shrimps with their distinctive motifs, the One Star gets an upper and a sole in soft rose and appears with a rose artwork and the use of Fake Fur on the heel. The Chuck 70 Hi appears in white canvas accented with black “shrimp faces”, a black mid sole and a black fake fur heel.
The entire collection will be available from 13th December at converse.com.
