Tyler is lending his imaginative design sensibilities to Converse, starting with the iconic suede One Star sneakers.
The announcement strangely coincides with the leak of his album as well as the shocker that he might be coming out of the closet, following in the footsteps of Frank Ocean. One of the songs on his new album alludes to his sexuality. But knowing Tyler The Creator’s marketing panache, this could just be a ruse to promote his work and partnerships.
If you are fans of Golf Wang, expect more of the same fashionable antics. Right now, the collaboration seems to be just limited to its sneakers but the sneaker brand is keeping mum on whether there will be other products in the pipeline. Personally, I think Tyler The Creator is a perfect fit with Converse. Tyler loves his bright colours, zany silhouettes and streetwear inspiration, and they mesh well with Converse.
If you want to get your hands on the Converse One Star sneaker, available soon at Converse’s selected boutiques, follow us on @augustman and the official Converse Instagram account @converse_sg for more updates.
