Together with British illustrator Jamie Hewlett, CONVERSE announced its new collaborative Chuck Taylor All Star with world famous virtual band Gorillaz. To coincide with its 10th anniversary retrospective album, “Singles Collection: 2001-2011″, set to release on November 28th, Hewlett created exclusive prints for Chuck Taylor’s centenarian silhouette. Each component an intricate part of the band, the collection will encompass four different designs, including the military camouflage pattern first seen on Gorillaz’s debut album. Alterations were made on the hang tag and heel tab as well for this special collection.
As part of the collaboration, Gorillaz will not only take part in CONVERSE’s “Three Artists. One Song” music campaign. It will also host a Gorillaz Sound System at the legendary 100 Club in London, England. An evening full of audio & visual wonderment and a rare occasion to see 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs perform live.
