Chinese-born, London-based designer Feng Chen Wang has gained a cult following for her emotional and multi-dimensional aesthetic.
Wang’s partnership with Converse is emblematic of this approach. And through a string of thrilling articulations of brand hallmarks — the Chuck 70, ERX and Pro Leather — she’s made a name for herself in footwear circles. Now, her sights are set on the iconic Converse Jack Purcell.
Recognizable for its toe cap “smile,” the Jack Purcell arrived on badminton courts in 1935. Feng Chen Wang delivers a personal take, using the Chinese characters that form her Mandarin name to create a dynamic system of layering that produces an eye-catching exaggeration of the Jack Purcell Mid’s simple upper.
Intended for mix-and-match styling, and available in two complementary color palettes, the collection is rounded out by a cap and a convertible cross-body bag.
