Terence Koh x Converse: Minimalist Design With a Maximal Result
Sometimes a blank canvas makes the most striking statement, as we learned at Terence Koh's launch party for his collaborative shoes with Converse. White on white with white all over, models were simply donned in tiny white shorts with Koh’s sneakers, making painting motions (sans paint) with white paintbrushes on white paper-stocked easels. Despite the interesting display, it was clear that Terence’s shoes were the most talked about artwork of the night. “I wanted to keep the DNA of the Chuck Taylor intact, while reducing the seams, and smoothing out the shoe’s surfaces as much as possible”. Terence's concept went fluidly into creation, as guests agreed that the shoes' seamless edges, square back ankle, and super smoothed surfaces, and snowy appearance make the them look like clay sculptures themselves.

It should be said that these shoes do go beyond fashion for arts sake. As part of the 1HUND(RED) campaign, a percentage of sales of these shoes go to fighting AIDS in Africa. More than just a perfect pairing to our collaborative tees with the artist, Terence’s shoes are as propitious as they are uniquely stunning.

Terence Koh for Converse debuts at Opening Ceremony New York and LA on Saturday, November 21st. 

Check out photos from the launch at Cooper Union.
