Converse’s latest graphic on its timeless Chuck Taylor is the result of a post-humous collaboration with Verner Panton, an innovative talent of design and architecture during the 20th century. Panton’s most notable piece of work is arguably the Fantasy Landscape, in which he created a world of bold colours, opposite of the colorless and dreary life he described as “beige conformity”. The beige base with faded rainbow graphic seen on these Converse Chuck Taylors is more than just a colourway; its represents Verner Panton’s thesis and vision, in sneaker form, of course. Get some color and culture in your life by picking up your pair at Honeyee.
