[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he new Converse All Star Spring 2014 collection features dynamic bursts of colours and elevated silhouettes to provoke self-expression. Colourful tie-die prints, archive patterns and bold colour create functional yet stylish looks just perfect for the spring.
To launch the collection, Converse hosted a special media event in New York City where local graffiti artist – Queen Andrea, spoke about three new murals she created for Converse.
The murals are part of a larger Converse art initiative called Sneakers Clash (#sneakersclash) that also includes artists Megan Caponetto and Greg Lamarche. Each artist was asked to re-imagine everyday spaces and objects with colour in San Francisco, Boston and New York.
