Converse 2012 Fall/Winter Oscar Niemeyer Footwear Collection

The Converse Oscar Niemeyer collection features five new iterations of Converse silhouettes – each with a nod to Niemeyer’s legendary artwork and world-renowned architecture. Born in 1907, Niemeyer’s career spans over eight decades, having established himself as one of Modernism’s greatest pioneers. Through his contemporary use of concrete and bold approach to design, Niemeyer introduced a new way to build “curved” architecture, which has since become his signature. The collection includes the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi sneaker with an all-over canvas print featuring the architect’s famous handwritten poem about curves – as well as a Chuck Taylor All Star Oxford, Chuck Taylor All Star Chukka Boot, Skid Grip Oxford, and a stylish Jack Purcell with playful representation of Niemeyer’s curve. The Converse x Oscar Niemeyer collection will launch at exclusive retailers across Brazil on October 23.
