This collection made its debut earlier in the year and we were curious as to how it would be received. Personally, we thought the collection was in a word… cool. Being lovers of art and fashion it seemed to be a match made in style heaven. Converse coming together with the genius that was Andy Warhol.
Who just was Andy Warhol you ask? Warhol was an American artist who revolutionized what we now call pop art. Andy enjoyed seeing the artistic marriage between pop as well as celebrity culture and 1960’s advertisement.
One shoe from the Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars Andy Warhol collection that we still get a kick out of and that is still retailing strong is the Campbell’s Soup rendition. Maybe its because it gives us flashbacks to childhood or that it is simply epic to see a famous painting come to fashion life. It also makes us think of an old dance video…
