There’s More Than Meets The Eye In The New Converse Essentials Collection
Everyone has that one pair of trackies or hoodie that they refuse to throw out, despite how old they are. They’re soft, comfortable, and worn in just right. Now with the launch of the new Converse Essentials Collection, you’ll be racing to get rid of your old clothes and looking to the iconic streetwear brand for your new ones. Made to stand the test of time, the new range gets into the details of what makes a piece of clothing truly comfortable, durable, and stylish.
The Essentials Collection is comprised of hoodies, a t-shirt, a crewneck, track pants and a backpack. Converse has sought to craft the perfect range of staples that will not only feel perfect from the first wear, but will also get better over time. They’ve achieved this by keeping three key ideas in mind; quality, craftsmanship and fit. The quality, as expected from the brand, is undeniably high, while the craftsmanship proves superior too. Each of the pieces of clothing in the collection is made from 360-gram legacy loopback French terry, bound together with polyamide thread and with a four-needle flatlock construction. This combination of materials and construction allows them to break-in nicely over time while retaining the fit of the piece. Engineered dyes are used to ensure long-term colour consistency in the fabrics too.
Unlike other hoodies and track pants that can look pretty bulky, the pieces in the Converse Essentials Collection feature a streamlined and modern fit. They look nice on, allowing them to easily go between at-home staples and streetwear. Team them with a pair of Converse sneakers and you’ve got yourself the perfect casual outfit. The double-cuff rib roll in the pieces also allows for varied styling options and helps to preserve the shape.
A collection that has carefully considered the details, these are pieces that are not only made to last but actually get better the more they’re worn. Each wash makes them softer and each wear makes them even more comfortable than the last. Being available in a refined range of colours also adds to their timelessness; you won’t find grey, navy, black or white going out of style anytime soon.
Shop the collection from September 29th at the Converse Melbourne Central, Northland and Werribee stores or converse.com.au.
