BLANK CANVAS #01 // CONVERSE APAC
It’s been a great year so far for Converse and if this year is any indication of what’s to come, then sign me up! Just in case you haven’t been following the brand, let Converse Asia Pacific bring you up to speed with Blank Canvas Issue #01, an exclusive magazine that includes a recap of Converse events, interviews and other things to look forward to for the remainder of 2014.
Relive events through the magazine like the Converse Open Studio – a pop-up art exhibition in Hong Kong, and the Fall Autumn ’14 Press Preview in Seoul Korea (to get a closer look at our coverage of Converse Got Seoul, click here). It also features a mini journal from Jane Chuck, Malaysia’s super Instagrammer on her tour of Seoul.
Find out what street art means to Thailand’s urban artist TRK, and how skating made its way into the lives of Converse CONS APAC ambassadors Jeff Gonzales (Philippines) and Tao (Thailand). Check out conversations with notable names in the music and fashion scene like DJ KoFlow (Singapore), fashion designer Pearly Wong (Malaysia), Theng Wei of JUICE, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and, an avid Converse collector – Ritsana Boontivaporn (Thailand). There is even a guide to explore Bangkok in 36 hours by Dudesweet, creative collective and club night luminary.
On top of presenting various style shots through a collaborative shoot with Malaysian fashion designers, and street-styled snaps of Asia’s influencers and personalities, the magazine has also lined up some of the releases for the season in the region.
The 50-page magazine is available only through exclusive distribution across the Asia Pacific region from October 2014 onwards. Stockists to follow.
