As the Converse “VULCANIZED” was finally released by the pairing of Nike and Virgil Abloh, the original 10 collaboration was complete. Launched in Fall 2017, the ‘TEXTBOOK’ that detailed the entire process is now available to read online – and better yet, its free!
Compiled into a 258-page book , the Nike x Virgil Abloh “TEN ICONS RECONSTRUCTED” collection has been memorialised, showcasing everything from quotes from the legendary designers, the initial design process as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes.
Prepared by the late Gary Warnett, the images were captured in all corners of the globe from Milan to New York and London to Portland. Find a quiet corner, turn up some A$AP Rocky and read the whole ‘TEXTBOOK’ here.
