Exclusive; The Converse Jack Purcell X Hudson’s Bay Company

The latest collaboration from Converse Jack Purcell meets the worldly heritage of Canada’s Hudson’s Bay Company. They have taken the iconic multi-stripe blanket with the equally iconic Jack Purcell trainer, executed in the Hudson’s Bay primary signature colours.  For the first time ever, the classic woollen blanket is used in these unique styles for Autumn 2013.


Taking the unisex Jack Purcell and women’s Helen models, each style embodies the Hudson’s Bay wool point blanket stripes, featuring threaded stitching, antique brass eyelets, Jack Purcell and Hudson’s Bay logos and an official “Seal of Quality” maintaining the authenticity of Hudson’s Bay Company.

Founded in 1670 Hudson’s Bay Company is one of North America’s oldest lifestyle brands and for more than two centuries the point blanket has been a familiar staple in homes across Canada and around the World. Mirroring the iconic design, the wool used on the trainers is dyed before it is spun and is air and sun dried to brighten the colours.

Gourmet Fall 2013

Gourmet takes its influence from Italian American culture and the old World Italy. Producing styles that are both unique (Italian-American influences) and yet classic (Old World Italy). With 2 very different ingredients brought together there seemed no better option to Gourmet than to bring on board Ilan Hall for their Fall 2013 shoot. Known for winning Top Chef in America, Ilan takes his inspiration from both Scottish and Jewish cuisine. A perfect match for one another – both inspired by 2 different sides of the coin.
