Oscar Niemeyer for Converse

Slide 1

Architect Oscar Niemeyer never shies from embracing the new. Rather than a building, his latest project is a line of Converse sneakers, this one with a bold red tongue that references the entrance to his Ibirapuera Auditorium in São Paulo. The canvas upper is decorated with the text of his famous quote: “It is not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line. It is the sensual curve I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the body of the be­loved woman.”  ­niemeyer.org.br
