Internationally acclaimed fashion designer, Paria Farzaneh has revealed his latest creation after his partnership with Converse.
Both brands came together to create a new super edition of the popular Pro Leather X2.
According to her, the new design is a recreation to honour the iconic court-to-street shoe style.
“This edition complements the silhouette’s exaggerated outsole and fashion-forward lean with a utilitarian zip-up design inspired by ’ 90s sportswear and Iranian heritage. Paria /Farzaneh’s mission is bigger than fashion.
“The pieces aim to confront and disrupt the status quo—whether it’s challenging western views of Middle Eastern culture or expressing solidarity with the fight for change,” Converse said in a written statement.
Reacting to the detailing of the Pro Leather X2 shoes, the designer brand said:
“This distinct full-zip hoodie incorporates the London designer’s signature paisley print through reflective details on the interior and piping and adds contrast stitching around the pockets.
“Those sharp details are also complemented by real function: 465 GSM French terry provides warmth and super-soft comfort.”
