It was a dark time in the USA when young American men had to serve the country doing the Vietnam war. As a result it paved the way for the hippy generation and the 60s was all about fighting for one cause: love. One of the most famous icons of this era was the ‘Love’ stamp that was designed by pop artist Robert Indiana.
The stamp was first designed in 1964 as a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art and then exhibited as a sculpture in 1970. The Love design has since been reproduced in every way possible in various different formats and today Robert Indiana’s iconic Love design has found their way to Converse’s latest collection. With the Love icon printed on canvas, these Chucks are a perfect way to continuing Robert Indiana’s symbol of optimism.
Converse x Robert Indiana will be available from April 2010 at all Converse outlets in Malaysia at the retail price of RM209.90 for the low cut and RM215.90 for the high cut.
