Former Supreme Director Collaborates with Converse

Converse x MadeMe limited edition street fashions were inspired by designer Erin Magee’s love of sneakers and the 1990’s.

Converse has collaborated with MadeMe on their latest street fashion collaboration. MadeMe is the moniker of Erin Magee, who was the female Director of Development and Production at Supreme for over 11 years. The collection consists of a tracksuit, cropped halter top and platform low tops shown here, and also the Oversized Corduroy Short, the Long Sleeve Tee and the Super Mini Backpack. It will all be available on May 24, which is two days from this blog posting.

The look book starred actress Lourdes Leon, who’s armpits were scandalously unshorn. Notice how the tracksuit matches the logo halter crop top. The flat soled sneakers have a platform.

Magee told Vogue that the halter top was inspired by the style of women such as Princess Nokia, as well as Leon, “Whenever I see them, there’s a little men’s vibe on the bottom, like a loose pant. And to make it super cute or girly, there’s the halter or tube top.” One could describe it as cozy.

In the press release, Magee stated that she had been on team Converse since adolescence. She explained, “I wore One Stars all the time as a teen. And I’d been wearing this pair I got recently every day because they reminded me of that.” She recently bought a pair of Converse online.

Converse x MadeMe new collaboration will be available at Converse’s official web store.

Supreme released a bunch of spring 2018 sunglasses during the last two weeks of May. Lisa Frank founded an iconic brand during the eighties and now they make sneakers.
