Brilliant Tyler, the Creator Produces a “Brilliant White” Converse GLF 2.0
Known for his vibrancy, visually and verbally, this iteration will be the most 'simplistic', all things considered—for Tyler.
It’s hard to imagine Tyler as anything else other than a creator, even to say he’s gifted would be an understatement. Eccentric, an enigma. But it seems artists who bear those traits are the only ones who can traverse the lines between music and fashion, and perform in both fields with utmost excellence. A rarified class limited to the likes of Pharrell or Ye, et al.
After winning a Grammy and wrapping up his global tour of Call Me If You Get Lost, he’s channelled his focus back into his fashion endeavors, much like he did during his days producing Golf Wang. He’s recently broadened his GOLF le FLEUR* line with BEL-AIRS sunglasses and now he’s revisiting his 5-year partnership with Converse. While he’s been co-signed by Vans before, it was the Star that took his creative vision to the stratosphere.
The partnership thus far, has produced two original silhouettes in the Gianno and the titular GLF2, the latter having been released in several colorways. Known for his vibrancy, visually and verbally, this iteration will be its most ‘simplistic’, all things considered—for Tyler.
The silhouette brings together a classic court shoe aesthetic, some old school vibes, and a smooth leather build. The “Brilliant White” envelopes almost the entirety of the upper only broken up by its sporadic embellishments. On the tongue tag depicts a pastel illustration typical of the design language of Tyler’s label along with the Converse logo below it.
Co-branded logos persist on the insoles as well in pink, with the color taking up the entire serrated outsole. Possibly the most striking feature would be the decorative “GOLF le FLEUR*” hangtag up top. Finally, holding the upper and the base together is the aged flecked midsole.
The pair will be released on 27th September on Converse.com with a price tag set at US$110.
