Over the years, Millie Bobby Brown has made a name for herself, not only as a talented actress but also as a successful entrepreneur. Her newest and most successful venture is her clean beauty company Florence by Mills, which pushes their customers to redefine beauty on their own terms. The brand is taking its next steps by collaborating with Converse and offering fans the ability to customize a pair of shoes with motifs taken from the Florence by Mills aesthetic.
This collab will be Brown’s fourth customizable collection with Converse By You and will go live on the website on Nov. 8. Alongside a range of Chuck Taylor high tops and platforms, florals, soft pinks and purple hues will be offered. Lace colors, canvas colors, patches, eyelets and digital prints can be chosen to suit your own style, providing fans with full creative freedom for what they want their Millie Bobby Brown x Converse shoe to look like.
“Bringing Florence by Mills and Converse together was a dream collaboration," Brown explained. "From the beginning of our work together, Converse embraced my individuality and encouraged me to share my ideas and express myself."
Converse tasked 22-year-old photographer Zamar Velez with the mission to perfectly capture this one-of-a-kind collaboration. Velez is a Converse All Star, meaning they are a member of the mentorship program that offers a community for young creatives along with funding. What's more, Velez understood how important it was to translate Brown’s self-expression and creativity.
“The shoot was so much fun and super easy," Velez reflected. "It felt like I was hanging out with friends. I wanted to shoot to look like we were having a really good time, and I think I got that point across. My favorite moment on set was when Millie started dancing… I was just snapping away, getting these candid moments that came out pretty cool.”
"Being a Converse All Star has shown me how important it is to collaborate and help each other," Velez added. "It’s nice to know that people have your back, even if they aren’t in the same exact creative field you’re in. "
