Converse’s New Collaboration with A$AP Nast Offers Mid-Century Vibes

Join Sourcing Journal on March 13th HKT for Sourcing Summit Hong Kong for discussions on mending relationships between supply chain partners, remaking factories for smaller MOQs and faster turns, and creating resilience to survive the next inevitable crisis.

Hip-hop artist A$AP Nast reveals a new side of himself—mid-century modern furniture collector—in a new collaboration with Converse.

Nast and Converse teamed up on a limited-edition footwear and apparel collection inspired by the distinct colors and materials of the design period.

The Converse One Star features a mustard yellow corduroy upper, fuzzy laces and the iconic Converse star in deep red leather. The Chuck Taylor All Star 70 gets a retro-cool update with plaid. Both sneakers include the phrase “Somewhere in Mid-Century” on the sidewalls. The same phrase takes center stage on T-shirts, offered in cream, cardinal and dark chocolate.

The Converse x A$AP Nast collection exclusively launches at the Foot Locker flagship store in Times Square on Thursday.

“Being born and raised in Harlem, I’m excited to drop my [first] design collaboration in my city. Fashion has always been a priority whether expressed through my style or rap—I am telling a story,” said Nast. “As a young creative, Converse gave me the opportunity to share my vision, passion and personal inspiration of a timeless era through the collection.”
