Converse Year Of The Dog Collection Takes Its Inspiration From Mythology
The Converse Year of the Dog collection takes its cue from the legend of the Tiangou Eclipse. The assortment comes alongside two new colorways of the One Star, which comes with interchangeable patch logos.
Converse released the new range of apparel to celebrate the new year. The “Solar Pack” in the collection includes a satin bomber, hoodie, and tees.
Each piece have embroidered graphics that reference the color gradient of the setting sun. One pair showcases white, pink, and gray tones while another comes in black and red.
The “Solar Pack” will drop this Friday, Jan. 5. It will be available at select Converse retail stores. Prices of the pieces range from $35 USD to $100 USD.
Tiangou is a mythical creature from China. It resembles a black dog or meteor. Moreover, it is thought to eat the sun or moon during an eclipse.
Legend says that one must beat dogs and drive them away to ward of the Tiangou. This would result to the heavenly dog spitting out the sun or moon and flee back into the heavens.
Meanwhile, BAPE will also be releasing a Year of the Dog collection. It will drop this Saturday, Jan. 6. It features Chinese zodiac signs to celebrate the new year.
