The autumn-winter collection of CONVERSE is marked by the brand's second collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation. The iconic artist's recognizable work, combined with the CONVERSE classics, is a new take on the symbols of American culture that both the Chuck Taylor All Star and Warhol's pop art have long been. We invite you to take a closer look at the collaboration and consider the details.
"Banana" is one of the brightest symbols of the artist's work. Even if it seems that bananas are always the same, bananas depicted in the manner of Andy Warhol are always recognizable. And in combination with the white material CTAS, they look especially juicy. The bright yellow banana is discouraging with its seemingly simple artistic solution, but at the same time it is a defiant drawing-symbol of Warhol's work.
In the fall-winter 2015 collection, the sneakers will be available in white and black. Indeed, it is against the background of contrast that the image seems more expressive and brighter. A tall white model, crafted from premium leather, features a banana against a solid background, while black low top sneakers showcase a different take on the same look. Without a doubt, the new model will be in the spotlight. "Portrait" is Warhol's iconic self-portrait in a new color interpretation on dense black canvas of the classic CONVERSE tall model. Vivid colors enhance the contrast of the original image: details fade into the background, and shapes become more voluminous. Optical illusion or optical illusion is a technique when using which the observer gets the impression that objects exist in three dimensions; the effect of volume is created.The artist actively used the technique of creating optical illusion in his works, thereby opening up new perspectives for creativity. And even when you are sure that you have solved the picture to the end, it may well turn out that this is again a deception. The Fall 2015 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star x Andy Warhol collection will be available in Moscow at all Converse concept stores. Date of collection on sale: September 2015.
