Serving as a perfect inspiration, denim boutique Tenue de Nimes found an ideal medium in a pair of CONVERSE Chuck Taylor All Star. What better canvas for a fitting expression of youthful exuberance, of limitless potentials, and a dash of rebellious attitude. All the while, steeped in tradition and Americana. With assistances from Japan’s Manabe clan, owners of the storied Momtaro brand of denim and Rampuya dyeing factory, Tenue de NÃ®mes had 50 pairs of Chuck hand dyed in natural indigo at Manabe facility in Okoyama, Japan. The result, a signature appearance unlike any other. And because the process slightly varies, each of the 50 is different among themselves. Making one pair a true “one of one” creation. Decorated with with a Tenue de NÃ®mes cross logo on the insole and packaged within a a Ramupya natural cotton bag, all 50 will be available exclusively at Tenue de NÃ®mes in Amsterdam for â‚¬89,90, or $126 US, starting this Friday, July 15th. The store will also host a release event with live demonstration of the Rampuya dyeing technique.
