Oh yeah, 1 iconic brand teams up with 1 iconic artist, well the artist work that is.
The brand is Converse and the artist is Andy Warhol (r.i.p.). In next weeks Converse will drop the – Converse All Star Andy Warhol Collection – featuring iconic Warhol imagery on footwear and apparel.

The Converse All Star Andy Warhol Collection is created in partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation. Marrying Warhol’s distinct vision with the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, the partnership between two pop culture icons celebrates creative self-expression and pays homage to the visionary artist. The collection features bold Warhol imagery across an array of expressive Converse tees and footwear for men and women.

Hailed as the preeminent artist of the 20th century, Warhol was an iconic visionary whose legacy continues to inspire rebels and artists everywhere. He creatively merged pop culture, film, music, screen printing and performance, opening the door for millions of artists and performers.

“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.”

The Spring 2015 Converse Chuck Taylor Andy Warhol Sneaker and Apparel Collection will be available for purchase starting Saturday, February 7th at selected stores (on- and off-line), Converse stores and Converse.com for $35 – $100 USD.
