Converse Releases Collaboration With Paria Farzanah, The Pro Leather X2

With the Pro Leather as her muse, Paria Farzaneh creates a unique aesthetic that explores her Iranian heritage. Paria’s storytelling encompasses neutral tones, striking paisley prints made by traditional wood blocking techniques and utility inspired styles.


A product that is representative of current times, designed for utility, and not just aesthetic. It’s built to reflect the world we live in, and the practical needs we may want to have as the world changes every day.


The Pro Leather X2 featured on the runway during LFW:M in Jan 2020, and again on the runwayduring her LFW:M September 2020 show, “Number 6”.

The storytelling of the PL X2 design encompasses neutral tones, striking 3M reflective signature Iranian paisley prints made by traditional wood blocking techniques and utility inspired styles. A product that is representative of current times, designed for utility and not just aesthetic. It is built to reflect the world we live in, and the practical needs we may want to have as the world changes every day.


Similar to how Converse has been adopted and interpreted throughout decades, Paria Farzaneh now applies signature nuances, colour and materialization from her eponymous label to the Pro Leather X2 to present a practical and technical take on the silhouette.


The Converse x Paria Farzaneh Pro Leather X2 offers the first iteration of a relationship that has thrived on a mutual design ethos and innovation. For Farzaneh, it was imperative that the product offered enhanced styled functionality for a wearer and the Pro Leather X2 delivers. With a more resilient and technical aesthetic, through Farzaneh’s the distinctive lens, the design looks to ensure a wearer is prepared for the ever-changing world.
