Converse Chuck Taylor All Star "Warhol"

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star “Warhol”

Andy Warhol threw the art world into disarray when he first exhibited Brillo Box in 1964, challenging contemporary sensibilities by re-producing consumerist imagery and presenting it as “art.” Converse decorates the Chuck Taylor All Star with 1960′s Brillo packaging, pointing to the era when Pop Art bloomed. The high top is not only a direct nod to Warhol’s radical artistic practices but also a display of appreciation for vintage commercialist aesthetics. Purchase a pair at colette for €85 EUR (approximately $95 USD).
