Coinciding with Paris fashion week, the launch of the Converse Missoni Archive Project at colette is highlighted by a unique, site-specific installation by Gary Card.
The collection, which celebrates two iconic Converse silhouettes, is limited to 20 one-of-a-kind products made of deadstock, archival Missoni fabric. London-based set designer and illustrator Card took his inspiration from Converse's "Star Chevron," building a soaring sculpture with a star at the base. As it rises, the tower unravels like a yarn of fabric creating another angular chevron. The piece is finished with classic monochrome Missoni knit.
A limited edition hand-numbered hardback book accompanies the project.
