Converse Kicks Off Summer With New Tees And Tanks

Today, Converse Inc. debuts its latest Converse Tees and Tanks Collection in celebration of summer. The collection presents a wide array of tees and tanks that symbolize a canvas of self-expression. The Converse All Star collection features poster art from the Converse Rubber Tracks Live free concert series and the iconic Chuck Taylor logo badge of creative expression. The Converse CONS apparel collection offers sports-inspired graphic prints and bold colors, which bring to life the rebellious and creative drive of CONS. Featuring clean and minimal graphics, the Converse Jack Purcell collection provides a relaxed, inventive look with a touch of modern craftsmanship. The new Converse Tees and Tanks Collection is available at Converse stores and on www.converse.com for $20 - $35 USD. 

CONVERSE ALL STAR

Available in unisex styles, the Converse All Star Tee Collection celebrates the nomads and wanderers within. Bold and vibrant, the collection is a form of self–expression with a modern take on Americana to proudly display your identity. The collection also introduces the first installment of Converse Rubber Tracks Live tees featuring concert poster artwork by graphic artists, Alan Forbes, Matthew Fleming and Christian Bland. Converse Rubber Tracks is a free, no strings attached professional recording studio for emerging musicians. Concert poster artwork comes from Converse Rubber Tracks Live, a music series where the headliner chooses an artist who has recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks as the opening act.  

CONVERSE CONS

The Converse CONS “uniform” is not complete without a tee or tank to complement the confident CONS attitude fueled by street culture. To bring the tough spirit of the CONS world to life, this season’s selection features cool graphic prints and imagery that ties back to the seasonal sneaker collection. The sports-inspired men’s only tees intertwine effortlessly with the rebellious and creative drive of CONS.

CONVERSE JACK PURCELL

Following the launch of the Spring 2014 Jack Purcell men’s apparel collection, the Fall 2014 collection offers seasonal and versatile layering pieces with the base being a Jack Purcell Tee.  The lightweight tees, some of which include design details that feature the iconic Jack Purcell smile, offer an everyday essential to the rest of the Jack Purcell wardrobe with effortless style.
