Converse is making sure it’s adequately in touch with current hot topics by releasing its first genderless apparel collection. The capsule range is called SHAPES and asks the question “what if apparel was built agnostic of gender?”.
Many of Converse’s offerings are already genderless, especially the Chuck Taylor, in fact it could be argued that all clothing is essentially genderless already, but the accompanying teaser clarifies that the range is designed for body shape, using size as a reference point not identity.
The collection features five core pieces, each made from 50% recycled cotton and 50% virgin cotton, and will be available in just 4 sizes. “5 pieces, 4 sizes, 1 collection for every body” says Converse.
SHAPES will be available in Autumn 2020.

What if apparel was designed agnostic of gender? That is the question we sought to solve. Fueled by a simple idea: you define the clothes, the clothes don’t define you. Launching in Fall 2020, Converse Shapes is a new type of apparel essential. 5 Pieces, 4 Sizes, 1 Collection for Every Body.
