Andy Warhol x Converse Collection – Chuck Taylors Wrapped In Campbell’s Soup Art

 

Converse All Star Andy Warhol Collection

Converse has a long history of collaborating with other brands for special editions. For latest such venture they have teamed-up with Andy Warhol Foundation to design a soup-inspired collection. Launched at the beginning of the year, the capsule 2015 All Star Andy Warhol x Converse Collection feature a series of high-top and low-top sneakers from Chuck Taylor All Star brand. Even though Converse now offer sneakers in various prints, Warhol himself is the first person to use them as a canvas – he made his own custom printed Chuck Taylors.

Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s Soup Can series created in 1962 comprise of 32 paintings – one of each of the soups Campbell’s offered at the time. For the sneaker collection Converse has reproduced them in color and black & white versions. In addition to sneakers, the collection also include t-shirts.
