MACKINTOSH and CONVERSE, both timeless classics that have defined modernity and style. For MACKINTOSH, it was its signature rainwear that sheltered everyone from policemen to British royalties for the last 150 years. For CONVERSE, it was the Jack Purcell. Donned by badminton champ Jack Purcell himself first, the simple canvas shoes with a “smile” have seen its fair share of common men and royalties of the Hollywood kind. In seeing a complement of both labels’ histories, MACKINTOSH and CONVERSE will introduce the CONVERSE Jack Purcell Johnny featuring MACKINTOSH’s rubberized cotton as upper. Limited and available in 3 vibrant colors – navy blue upper with lime interior, putty colored upper with a chocolate interior, and finally, a dark olive upper with its deep plum interior. To reciprocate the offer, MACKINTOSH will introduce its iconic single breasted raincoat in matching colors as well, each with the “Jack Purcell smile” imprinted under its collar.
Comes in sizes 4-13 and retails for $140, the MACKINTOSH x CONVERSE Jack Purcell Johnny is set for launch on this Friday, April 22nd, at UK’s CONVERSE retailers and May 1st at CONVERSE First String locations in the US. Only 120 units available, each special edition MACKINTOSH raincoat retails for $1000 and set to be available at the newly opened MACKINTOSH flagship store in London along with select CONVERSE retailers, such as UNION LA.
