One year ago, Converse teamed up with DC Comics to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Batman’s debut in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. The brand is celebrating another 80th anniversary this time partnering with Looney Tunes to honour your favourite ‘wabbit.’ Enter the Converse X Bugs Bunny collection.
Converse X Bugs Bunny is the debut collection featuring the iconic Looney Tunes character that has been part of many young lives. The capsule will see the reimagining of the Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette.
Bugs brought his carrot-crunching, quick-witted candour to many living rooms over its eight decades since he first made his debut. Many of us grew up watching these cartoons regularly throughout the week. The lovable rabbit now joins with Converse for a collection for all ages, not just the kids.
Featuring a mixture of materials, the Converse X Bugs Bunny collection provides a unique aesthetic for the All Stars. These materials include faux fur, luxury suede and leather details. It also includes carrot embroidery, the Looney Tunes logo and Bugs Bunny himself.
Bugs Bunny is cast is many of his iconic depictions across each of the sneakers in the range. This includes him chewing on his favourite snack, his styish walk, some of his famous quotes, and also some tomfoolery.
The range doesn’t shy away from colourways either, featuring the bold contrasting of blacks, reds and whites. It also includes more conservative colourways in greys and beige.
The imagery is also extended to the heel tabs, tongues, insoles and much more, all of which feature some relation to Bugs Bunny.
Celebrate the 80th anniversary of your favourite bunny with the Converse X Bugs Bunny collection. It is available online at converse.co.za. The collection will also be available in Converse stores in Sandton City, Mall Of Africa, Gateway Mall, Canal Walk, as well as at Side-Step. The range retails from R599.95 to R1,499.95.
