In teaming up with Converse, Los Angeles-based creative collective Brain Dead wanted to rework iconic silhouettes like the Chuck 70 and archetypal MA-1 bomber jacket. "We wanted to take a more conceptual approach with Converse," says co-founder Kyle Ng. "We were inspired by pattern deconstruction -- we were interested in creating chaos with something that already existed."

To that end, Brain Dead brought together clashing animal, camo and American flag prints on the Chuck 70. The high-top is joined by the Converse x Brain Dead Hooded Bomber Jacket, a hybrid garment that mashes together a hoodie and jacket. A sweatshirt, tees and bags round out the range. Expect the goods to launch October 26 at and select retailers.
