My Converse: Converse Spring Summer 2015

A few weeks ago, the Converse team invited me to an art gallery where they introduced their campaign for spring/summer 2015. The main theme behind it was pretty cool: My Converse. They asked us to bring our favorite pair of Converse so they could take a portrait of them (pictured above). I believe every piece of clothing has a story of their own, I bought my gold Converse in a really great thrift store called RAGTAG, in Tokyo. In a way, I will always relate those shoes to Japan and the amazing time I spent there. 

The gallery was filled with photos of several pairs of Converse, they all had a story to tell. It was pretty cool, in a  nostalgic and sweet kind of way. The part of the newest collection that really caught my eye was the collection infused with Andy Warhol and pop art. Let me tell you, those sneakers look amazing. Besides that, I also liked the Converse made out of leather and the ones that have spikes and studs. I like simplicity in Converse but the ones that have special features are definitely my favorites, that explains why I love my gold ones so much.

// Hace un par de semanas, el equipo Converse me invitó a una galería de arte donde introdujeron su campaña para primavera/verano 2015. El tema principal tras ésta estuvo bien padre: Mis Converse. Nos pidieron que lleváramos nuestro par favorito de Converse para que pudieran tomarle una foto (vista arriba). Creo que cada pieza de ropa tiene una historia propia, yo compré mis Converse dorados en una tienda de segunda mano llamada RAGTAG, en Tokyo. En cierta forma, siempre relacionaré esos zapatos con Japón y el increíble tiempo que pasé ahí.

La galería estaba repleta de fotos con muchos pares de Converse, todos con una historia qué contar. Fue muy padre, en una forma nostálgica y dulce. La parte de la nueva colección que atrapó mi ojo fue la colección inyectada con Andy Warhol y arte pop. Déjenme decirles, esos zapatos se ven increíbles. Además de eso, también me gustaron los Converse hechos de piel y los que tienen estoperoles y tachuelas. Me gusta la simplicidad en los Converse pero los que tienen detalles especiales son definitivamente mis favoritos, eso explica por qué amo tanto los míos dorados.
Thanks Converse for immortalizing my kicks!
Love always,
Hen.
