Larry Clark shoots the new JW Anderson x Converse collab

The designer dropped the new collection at his recent AW18 co-ed show

Is there any stopping Jonathan Anderson? Last year alone saw him stage an exhibition at the Hepworth Wakefield, collaborate with Uniqlo and Converse – all while designing collections for both Loewe and his own eponymous label. This year Anderson decided to combine his menswear and womenswear collections into one co-ed show, he isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. At the recent AW18 collection he unexpectedly dropped his latest collection for the ongoing partnership with Converse.

While last year’s collection drew from John Waters films to bring us All-American, glitter-coated Chuck 70s, this season is comparatively pared down. Adding formal details to streetwear styles and sticking to a camel and navy blue colour palette, the shoes are in Anderson’s words been “reconstructed with nuance to create provoking designs.” Fancy.

The collection’s reimagined Thunderbolt, Chuck 70 and Chuck 70 XX Hi models can be seen in the accompanying campaign images and video, shot by Larry Clark on a Marseille beach with Insta-girls-of-the-moment Celia and Camille epitomising casual cool. This is the first time Clark has worked with Anderson, but it isn’t his first fashion appearance. He previously shot a short film for Dior Homme and also starred in the first campaign for the newly revived Helmut Lang. Watch his latest fashion film below. 

The ‘Simply_Complex’ collection will be available worldwide from March 2
