Converse Spring 2015 Press Preview

Me holding the new Jack Purcell spring 2015


What makes a brand iconic? this question had been running on my mind during the Spring 2015 press preview of Converse. To be an iconic brand or a household name brand, you have to stand out from the rest, your brand must be relatable and know your customers and target markets - those are just some of the many many things to make your brand iconic. There's one shoe brand that we all know, that conquered and already proved a lot in the culture of music and fashion, and is worthy to be called iconic. We all grew up owning or having a pair of Converse, that attachment we felt every time we see our old of pair of chucks, is comparable to the feeling of not seeing your best friend for a very long time. All the good and bad memories flashback in just one look at your old pair of chucks, whether it be your first date, going to your high school prom in chucks, your first job wearing your favorite chucks or that moment when you were in first grade and all you ever wanted was a nice pair of chuck taylor. Those are just one of the things why Converse has been on their top of their game ever since it was established/introduced in 1917. They know how to bond and build relationship to their loyal customers. I just love the diversity and the culture of this brand built through the years.

Let me tour you on their press preview and see what to expect this season from Converse 


Last Tuesday, February 10, 2014 Converse Philippines launched its Spring 2015 Converse All Star footweat to their influencers, media and press. CONVERSE Philippines debuts its Spring 2015 Converse All Star Footwear collection inspired by the creative spirit and rich heritage of the Chuck Taylor All Star.
