THE END OF A SAGA / HIGHLIGHTING TAKAHIRO MIYASHITA'S NUMBER (N)INE X CONVERSE CAPSULE
Posted: Sep 30 2015
We wanted to highlight one of Converse's most pinnacle partnerships in the brand's history. Forever locked in the Converse archives and in the homes of select individuals who sought far and wide for this series is the Number (N)ine capsule designed by former head Takahiro Miyashita. In 2009 Miyashita sold the brand parting ways with his idea but left us in confusion when he partnered with classic footwear powerhouse Converse under their 'First String' umbrella under the original logo and name a year after his departure.
This partnership between Miyashita and Converse could never be duplicated even with his collaboration with Adidas Originals under his new venture TheSoloist. by Takahiro Miyashita.
