A fashion show, four band performances, a slew creative reinventions.
Sneakers Clash a worldwide campaign by Converse, saw the main activity center of Fairview Ayala Terraces last May 10 as stage where color reigned supreme. From the “Clash Box” that transformed boring white tees into street-worthy statement shirts with splashes of paint to “photoclashed” social media pics jazzed up by graphic designer CJ de Silva, the public was enthralled with the radical ways a gray, boring world could be refreshed by color.
The audience was also treated with a showcase of the Converse’s Spring Summer 2014 in a fashion show participated by A-list models. They sported the eye-popping reissues of Chuck Taylor All Star 70’s, the subtly elegant Jack Purcell sneakers, and the latest in Converse apparel, bags and accessories.
The brand that lets you live out loud recently opened a stand-alone store at Ayala Terraces in Fairview, the newest commercial development of Ayala Group of Companies north of Metro Manila. Just like in its other stores located in the key parts of the country, the Ayala Terraces branch offers the complete collection, along with Converse apparel and accessories within a visually-arresting retail environment.
“Aside from Ayala Terraces, we have also opened stand-alone stores at Robinsons Butuan, Robinsons Malolos in Bulacan, Gaisano Toril in Davao City and Robinsons Isabela,” says Kate Oliva, Marketing and Advertising Manager of Converse Philippines. “More than ever, we have felt a strong demand to expand beyond the confines of Metro Manila.” Read more about Converse rocks the archipelago by adding more stores …
Getting loud is not as simple as we think it is; it’s more than just cranking the amp up to 11 and breaking decibel records. There needs to be meaning and purpose, from something as simple as getting you to dance, or something as intense as getting you stoked to hit the ramp.
Manyacts, particularly in the indie scene, strive hard to heighten the impact of their sound to the audience— they aim to “get loud” without making noise. In this case,harmony is necessary, and not just in a musical sense.
This is precisely the concept of “loudness” that Converse encourages, as exemplified by the bands it supports. Recently, the iconic sneaker brand found three exciting acts that shared this viewpoint: Paranoid City and Stereodeal. Read more about GETTING LOUD ! …

Converse introduced to the community of fashion bloggers its newest collection called the Chuck Taylor All Weatherized Collection , happened last November 28, at the Converse’s flagship store in Glorietta 2 in Makati City.
Honestly, I’m an avid Converse fan. I really love their shoes design and style. It was my pleasure and honor to be tapped by my favorite shoe brand to be part of “The 2013 Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Star Weatherized Collection Look Challenge.” It’s a challenge for us bloggers to come up with a unique ensemble using shoes and apparels (jackets, caps and bags) from the Weatherized Collection.
On this challenge, I combined the black Converse jacket to my favorite tank top and polo together with the pair of black semi- slim fit pants and a brown Converse’s Chuck Taylor shoes. To make my outfit more angst , I added a black hip hop cap.
