Todd Snyder x Converse “Rebel Prep” Collection Arrives January 27
Todd Snyder’s preppy roots run deep. From stints at GAP, J. Crew, and Ralph Lauren, the New Yorker cut his teeth with some of the biggest names in prep-inspired menswear. Naturally, it’s reflected in his own personal style and namesake label — and very much so in his footwear collaborations. For his next link-up with Converse, Snyder is not shy about it, dubbing the pack “Rebel Prep” — a mix between streetwear with traditional gentleman’s fabrics.
The apparel is true to the label’s form, never straying too far from simple, universal basics. The crew, which features a varsity-inspired ribbing, offers an alluring velvet that plays off the woodsy camo of the fishtail parka. As for the joggers, there’s no elastic at the hem; instead, a zipper adds an athletic sense reminiscent of other performance staples. This is but only a small fraction of a collection replete with different materials, textures, and styles. Both the Chuck 70 and Jack Purcell helm the footwear portion, each proffering their own distinct feel. Color-wise, however, the two make use of a similar palette, though the low-top does opt for a patterned finish akin to the aforementioned outerwear. Its lace tips and eyelets add a hunting-influenced element, too, which is then effectively toned down by the natural leathers across the lower half of the shoe. In contrast, the Chuck is dressed in olive green, whose base is made of waxed cotton from British Millerain.
Enjoy a quick look at the collection here below, and expect to see the entire series hit Todd Snyder’s official website on January 27th; The Chuck 70 is available via raffle which is currently live now at ToddSnyder.com.
