Available in Brazil, this Converse x Oscar Niemeyer collaboration inspired by the world-renowned architect's visionary artwork acts as a fantastically timed piece of shoe-porn.
As we prepare to drop our November issue which will feature a massive trainer focus, we're all on full-alert when it comes to footwear and this five-silhouette collection celebrating Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer's non-linear design ethos has certainly caught our fancy.
Born in 1907, Niemeyer’s career spans over eight decades, having established himself as one of Modernism's greatest pioneers. Through his contemporary use of concrete and bold approach to design, Niemeyer introduced a new way to build “curved” architecture, which has since become his signature, recognized throughout the world. Niemeyer’s bold design approach and outspoken voice revolutionized the way the world looks at architecture and design.
We're hoping for a UK release on the Converse x Oscar Niemeyer collection but as things stand they were released exclusively in Brazil today.
