Converse’s last collection takes a chance on a series of fresh and fun prints that take us on a trip to an eccentric imaginary. Each of the reedited sneakers in ‘Twisted Resort’ showcases different illustrations in which aliens land on the desert.
Humor and fantasy
Converse brings a good dose of humor in Twisted Resort’s summer codes. The models Run Star Hike, Chuck 70 Hi and Chuck 70 Low have been the chosen ones to give life to this capsule, willing to reinterpret every All-Star classic.
After its release in JW Anderson’s show, the Run Star Hike became an indispensable player. This model boasts an upper made from canvas that rises above a voluminous EVA midsole. Last but not least, a serrated sole seals the design, with the emblematic star on the heel. On the other hand, the iconic Chuck 70, in both their low and high cut, are the other two silhouettes featured in the collection. Each of them exhibits a different print that stems from the same concept.
We can therefore find the illustrations full of cactuses, cows, cowboys, stones and other Western characteristic elements. The twist is marked by drawings of aliens and UFOs. That land on the Earth prepared to conquer the arid desert. Moreover, each tongue features a chakras diagram, a space to accommodate the most adventurous users. In ‘Twisted Resort’ prevail beige, imbrex red, and black tones, colors in accordance with the hottest areas.
The art of innovation
With this new collection, Converse shows their inexhaustible ability to find inspiration in new scenarios and ideas. The American brand brings over and over to life their most emblematic pieces, adding modernity and originality each time, whilst always remaining faithful to the original details. Twisted Resort’s presentation concludes with a unique drop, with a modelling clay still life that acts as a set for these three new sneakers.
