Last summer, the release of Tyler, The Creator’s Flower Boy was accompanied by a line of Converse One Star shoes, with three vibrant color options available that worked within the themes of Flower Boy. As probably should have been expected, the shoes sold out nearly instantly online and in stores, with fans lining up outside for hours outside of Converse retail stores across the country for a chance at the limited edition kicks (and for those in New York City, a chance at tickets to Tyler’s secret show).
With stock of the original shoe disappearing within minutes, Tyler immediately got working on what would ultimately become the Golf Le Fleur Collection. In addition to a slight redesign to the shoe and three new colors (Jolly Green, Solar Power, and Vanilla), the Collection has partnered with Sherpa to further expand the Golf Le Fleur brand and incorporate hats, jackets, and pants. The collection still bears Tyler’s imaginative aesthetic design, while also pushing into uncharted territory. Check out some lifestyle shots of the collection below.
Tyler, the Creator and Converse are set to unveil the new Collection in Seoul, South Korea at the city’s largest streetwear concept shop Kasina, on October 18th. Similar to the original release this summer a limited number of fans purchasing from the Collection at Kasina will be given tickets for access to Tyler’s performance later that evening.
The new Golf Le Fleur collection launches at Converse retail stores and on Converse.com on 11/2. In the meantime, check out the episode of Tyler’s Nuts & Bolts show where he learns how to make shoes at the Converse factory.
