For anyone not intimately acquainted with modern ‘street’ culture, it’d probably be easy to confuse Patta and Parra. You can start to see similarities beyond their nearly-identical European names, upon viewing the former’s entire collection for Converse. Let’s take the Lincoln/Kennedy-style analysis a step further: Parra, who designed a special Converse Chuck Taylor All Star earlier this year, also just dropped a Nike Air Maxim 1 and two matching varsity jackets. Meanwhile, Patta had designed two Converse hightops (quilted grey Chuck and burgundy corduroy Pro Leather 76) with a reversible varsity jacket to match or contrast either pair. These dropped in Europe back in September, but will be hitting select U.S. retailers like HUF tomorrow, November 14th.
