A fan of re-purposing iconic images in his own art, the late and great Andy Warhol’s works will now be featured on a range of similarly iconic styles for Converse. The Converse All Star Andy Warhol Collection includes a selection of Chuck Taylor All Stars, All Star ‘70, Platform and Lux, as well as matching apparel, covered in classic Warhol prints.
“With this collection, we aim to celebrate and foster the innovative artistic expression that’s intrinsic to both Converse and Andy Warhol,” said Damion Silver, Converse All Star Design Director. “Andy Warhol famously created art inspired by American pop culture icons, and was a pioneer in utilizing the Chuck Taylor All Star as a blank canvas for his work. From this shared creative history grew our collaboration with Warhol.”
Created in conjunction with The Andy Warhol Foundation, part proceeds from the sale of this collection will go straight to the cause. Check out images of the collab above.
The collection is available now at Converse flagship stores, Converse online and other select retailers.
