From interning at SSUR to founding his own brand Midnight Studios wasn’t a long route for Shane Gonzales, the 24(?) year old LA-based designer digs deep in his archive to recreate the Converse One Star. Inspired by classic skate brands like Baker and Punk bands, mixing classic design elements with collage-clipping, his Midnight Studios imprint turns the Converse One Star inside out, showing-off elements that are usually hidden. The canvas upper is held in a tonal egret colorway with stitched cut-out One Star logo and branded laces. What’s the plural of hip, hype?
