Your favorite fashion trends of the 1990s are alive and well in the brand new Converse One Star x MadeMe collaboration by designer Erin Magee. The brands tapped Madonna‘s 21-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon to star in the retro-inspired campaign imagery, modeling the capsule collection’s 90s-perfect track suits, colorful corduroy sneakers, string halter tops, backpacks, long-sleeved shirts, and sporty shorts.
“Converse is definitely an iconic brand, a household name – everybody loves Converse. When they asked me to work with them, of course I said yeah,” Erin Magee told Hypebae. “I wear these every day, and I wore these when I was a kid too. It’s one of my favorite shoes of all time and I thought it was really relevant that they were pushing that style again. It’s the easiest design thing that I’ve ever had to do in my life. I was like ‘Great, I wear these every day. I wish they made ones like these.’ Collaborations work best when the brand they bring in, like MadeMe, does something that everyone wishes the brand did.”
After the collection all came together, Lourdes was the perfect face of the campaign – and it’s almost as if she manifested the possibility herself.
“I found a pair [of Converse One Stars] on Etsy and they were from maybe 1994,” she told Vogue. “I had been wearing them myself for a month or two before Converse called me.” Erin added that Lola started asking about the MadeMe pieces when she saw early sketches, before she was even officially asked to model
