Converse just debuted four (yes FOUR) new collaborations with popular LA-based designers and mainstays, Babylon, Rokit, RSVP Gallery and CLOT in honor of All-Star Weekend.

As part of the unique collaboration, each designer was provided with the same silhouettes (Chuck 70; Fastbreak; One Star CC) and color palettes, and was tasked to produce a new collection of footwear and apparel that nods to their very own personal celebration and interpretation of Los Angeles’ divergent street culture.


WHO: Babylon
WHAT: Lee Spielman and Garrett Stevenson’s label, Babylon LA, has created a sense of community for Los Angeles youth. Intended to be a cultural center for kids of the skate scene, Babylon continues to push the envelope of the DIY mentality of punk and skateboarding in a welcoming atmosphere.
WHERE: 1320 North Highland Avenue in Hollywood
SILHOUETTES: Fastbreak Hi ($120) and Chuck 70 Lo ($110)
COLOR POP: Gray


WHO: Rokit

WHERE: Union LA at 110 South La Brea Ave in Los Angeles
SILHOUETTES: Fastbreak Mid ($120) and Chuck 70 Hi ($110)
COLOR POP: Orange


WHO: RSVP Gallery
WHAT: Don C and Virgil Abloh’s high-powered art-gallery-slash-luxury-clothing boutique bridges hip-hop, fashion and pop art, making it the epicenter of collaboration and fashion creativity.
WHERE: 905 South Hill Street in Los Angeles
SILHOUETTES: One Star CC ($110) and Chuck 70 Hi $120)
COLOR POP: Yellow


WHO: CLOT
WHAT: Edison Chen and Kevin Poon’s lifestyle brand (and longtime Converse collaborator) CLOT is streetwear’s thoroughfare from east to west.
