Since 1993, accessories designer Jas Sehmbi been re-discovering the craft of mixology, not the sort you find in bars but in the skills of fusing needs in an urban surrounding with the classical skills of tannery from DJ bags to his re-interpretation of the city dweller's staple, the messenger bag. Now comes the designer first collaboration with CONVERSE, more specifically the iconic Jack Purcell, for his Jas M.B. label. Wrapped in premium leather from Italy, of which Sehmbi painstakingly "antiqued" to create the crackled effect as if the Chuck Taylor has been worn thoroughly for a few decades, without the leather losing its integrity during the process. Currently available through Japan's FLAUGE online store on ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
