a design student learns about the culture outside of the classroom - "off" campus
i wanted to capture the diversity of the student body on campus through the classic converse chuck taylor silhouette that comes in different shapes, sizes and colors that can be personalized. i took inspiration from virgil abloh's ten collection by uniting the revealing and ghosting theme. i exposed the tongue and heel tab to show the open source, reconstructed common materials used in every pair. subsequently, the raw eyelets and the transparent tape represent the ghosting aspect.
