“No age, no gender, no sex — I wanted everyone to feel included.”
03 May 2018
When it comes to her debut collection Converse X Miley Cyrus, this is exactly how Miley Cyrus wants her fans to feel. A true reflection of her personal style and influences, Miley tapped into her persona as a performer as well as her day-to-day style to create footwear and apparel that anyone can wear at any time—a complete lifestyle collection.
As a woman that has always been open to all possibilities, Miley partnered with Converse to reflect that feeling of self-empowerment. The result is a collection that allows each wearer to be exactly who they want to be every single day. “Converse has no boundaries,” she said. “It’s outspoken. I’ve always identified with Converse because the brand appeals and represents so many different cultures and walks of life. And, they’re accessible.”
After months of anticipation and sneak peaks, Miley set the stage for the collection by inviting some of her biggest fans across genders, orientations and backgrounds to join her in the collection’s lookbook. Shot by legendary fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, the images capture the energetic, bold and inclusive nature of Miley. “I definitely had my fans in mind and in my heart when I was creating,” she said. “I put what they love about me and what I love about them into the design.”
Whether sparkling with the Chuck Taylor All Star “Glitter” or looking to channel Miley’s performance and country roots in the “Bandana,” individuals can piece together looks from the collection for any mood or style.
Converse x Miley Cyrus is available exclusively at Converse located on Lower Ground at Emporium Melbourne with apparel starting at RRP $60 and footwear at RRP $120.
