Converse Translates The Work Of Basquiat To The Skidgrip And Chuck Taylor

Converse Translates The Work Of Basquiat To The Skidgrip And Chuck Taylor

In cultural influence, few rival the late Jean-Michel Basquiat. Immortalized through his artwork, the Brooklyn-born creative’s motifs have expanded far past their original canvases, inspiring the works of many a streetwear and footwear designer. Soon — come September 16th, to be exact — Converse, too, will join the conversation, translating some of the artist’s most iconic works to their Skidgrip and Chuck Taylor.

A moving gallery of sorts, the range adapts three pieces. The Skidgrip, for starters, directly draws from Kings of Egypt II, mimicking the bright colors, distorted text, and warped iconography through its multi-color print. Similarly executed, the Chuck 70 looks instead at Kings of Egypt III whose many signature details are replicated in both embroidery and sublimated graphic. Finally, the standard Chuck Taylor rounds out the series with an ode to the Pez Dispenser whose dinosaur and crown takes the form of a stitched-down applique.

Enjoy a close-up look at the entire collection below. Expect each — alongside a few apparel offerings — to release through Converse.com on September 16th promptly at 10am ET.

In other news, the Gundam Nike SB Dunk High arrives at the end of the month.
