Converse 2012 Optical Eyewear Gets Artistic

SINGAPORE, 5 July 2012 – Converse launches fresh styles in its Converse optical collection; whether you’re a Chuck Taylor addict or love your leather Star Chevrons, there is an original style for you.

Converse customers are unstoppably creative, so we’ve named these frames after art supply essentials that artistic types from the street to the studio can’t live without. Converse will have you seeing clearly and colorfully in 2012!

Converse Men’s Optical
Stencil Kit (RRP from S$166 onwards) lives up to its name with clean sharp lines in a matte metal frame with precision cutouts on the temples in four forthright colors. Don’t leave home without your Sketch Book, drafted in three layers of tonal acetate with a pencil thin streak of blue running through it.

Converse Optical for All!
You read it here first; the Newsprint (RRP from S$170 onwards) is a frame for one and all! Crafted from acetate embossed with Converse’s electric star pattern on the temples, this classic style comes in four colors ranging from playful acid green to no-nonsense black.

The Converse 2012 optical collection is available in all leading authorized optical retailers.
