This Fall/Holiday 2016, CONVERSE introduces the Converse Essentials collection of timeless apparel staples, designed to wear better with time. With a nod to the Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers, the Converse Essentials collection not only looks better with age and wear but becomes even softer with age. Each piece includes fabric that fades naturally with long-term wear, durable stitching and a managed shrinkage fit that remains the same throughout its lifespan.

To introduce the Converse Essentials collection, Converse will drop a limited-edition Converse Essentials x Fragment collection, designed by Fragment founder Hiroshi Fujiwara.

Hiroshi himself tested this philosophy by washing his collection for the equivalent of 12 years. The result is a vintage garment, ready for today that celebrates the construction while showing the possibilities of the Essentials collection.

The lineup will be available at Converse online and select retailers starting September 28. Nice work Converse!
