Rick Owens has continued his partnership with Converse, continuing to evolve the Chuck Taylor silhouette with exaggerated proportions and details. Dubbed the DRKSTR, the new design follows on from the collaborative TURBODRK Chuck 70 which saw Owens give the Chuck Taylor its first square-toed design.
The DRKSTR Chuck 70 comes in both Hi and Ox constructions, both of which feature a dimensionalized rounded toe cap. Other features include an upper constructed from heavy-weight 18 ox cotton twill, as well as an extended tongue previously seen on the TURBODRK and TURBOWPN silhouettes. The DRKSTR comes in classic black or white colorways.
For Fall/Winter 2021, the collaboration extends into accessories with a cap in black and pearl as well as a backpack sporting two zip enclosures, and two hook and loop tape side pockets.
The full Rick Owens DRKSHDW x Converse DRKSTAR is due to release via the Converse web store, the Rick Owens web store and physical shops, and select retailers.
