The Converse Oscar Niemeyer collection features five new takes on classic Converse silhouettes, all referencing Niemeyer’s legendary artwork and world-renowned architectural style. Born in 1907, Niemeyer’s career spans over eight decades, having established himself as one of Modernism’s greatest pioneers and champions. His collection for Converse includes the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi sneaker with an all-over canvas print featuring the architect’s famous handwritten poem about curves, a Chuck Taylor All Star Oxford, Chuck Taylor All Star Chukka Boot, Skid Grip Oxford and the Jack Purcell with playful representation of Niemeyer’s signature curve. The Converse x Oscar Niemeyer collection will launch at exclusive retailers across Brazil on October 23.
