Converse x Shaniqwa Jarvis.

As an artist, Shaniqwa Jarvis’s goal is simple: be as real as possible. She finds truth and intimate details in everything she shoots and tells personal stories through her work. She’s been documenting her life through photos since childhood. The Chuck Taylor CX brought a 100-year-old icon into the future. Through the collaboration, the classic takes another bold step forward. Her unique lens adds authenticity and personal storytelling to the innovative CX stretch canvas. Shaniqwa’s stunning imagery is also featured on the back of the midweight pullover cotton hoodie. The floral graphic is an ode to her father’s vibrant sense of style.

This collection isn’t just stunning to look at. It’s a female artist’s voice breaking through. As a woman of color in a male-dominated industry, Shaniqwa has spent her career challenging the status quo. She has made it her mission to share underrepresented stories and perspectives.

The Converse X Shaniqwa Jarvis Chuck Taylor CX and hoodie will launch exclusively at Shelflife and online at from Thursday, 13 August 2020. Pricing:

  • Chuck Taylor CX: R1599.95

  •  Hoodie: R999.95
