ANDY WARHOL X CONVERSE

Taking one of Warhol’s most iconic and recognizable prints, the Campbell’s Soup can, Converse reinterprets and repurposes this screen print. On the high top sneaker a singular soup can print is utilized in bold primary colors, while the low top stacks the Campbell’s Soup cans on top of one another to create a layered pattern that adds depth and dimension, a common technique used by Warhol.
“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 collection is now available at our Sneaker Gallery on floor 6.
