UK creative Navinder Nangla has been blasting his quirky artwork around London for years. The Northamptonshire-born graffiti artist and stylist has made tongue-in-cheek motifs his trademark, creating humorous slogans that play on global fashion concepts.

From “Fashion Weak” to “Fassion Is My Pashion” you may have seen his scribbled artwork around town as he teams up with Converse to debut the City Tees initiative. The UK Converse All Star is launching two T-shirts for the project’s debut, which supports local visionary talent with custom garment workshops.

Nangla has crafted his own designs for the premiere of City Tees, which feature his recognizable doodles. “CON-VS” lettering is painted onto white and black shirts, while red scribbles underline the previous above dripping Converse One Star logos.

His designs launched at an exclusive pop-up in London’s Soho neighborhood on May 11, featuring a live graffiti installation on the walls and windows.

Take a closer look at Navinder Nangla’s Converse City Tees launch above. Shop the collection via Converse’s website now.
