Olivia Wilde Gets Punk and Pretty for NYLON Denim Nation August 2011 Issue


Olivia Wilde graces NYLON’S August 2011 “denim nation” cover in nothing else but fab denim. The “punk gets pretty” editorial spread features Wilde donning some killer denim duds by the likes of Guess, Genetic Denim, Aritzia and The Gap. While discussing her latest movies, (Tron and Cowboys and Aliens) and  of course her love of denim and all things pertaining to it.  We fell in love with the white denim shorts paired with the white denim vest, the bikini top peeping through underneath the vest,  has an alluring understatement to it. We also love the  spiked bubble gum colored Chuck Taylors and the cover poster of Wilde,(A sneak peak at what’s to come in the issue,) wearing a pair of  cut off denim shorts and a mid drift baring crop top. Her stance and poise in the photo make an outfit even this risqu?, sexy and confident.  We can’t wait to pick up this issue which hits newstands and bookstores July 30th, we’re hoping you do the same.

Last night, Converse held a launch party for the collaboration of Terence Koh for Converse 1HUND(RED) Artists Chuck Taylor All Stars at the Cooper Union Foundation Building in NYC. As the elevator opened up to the thumping music dj’d by Aaron Bondaroff, I grabbed a Colt 45 and joined the intimate gathering of downtown hipsters and press to view the new Chucks by the controversial artist. Half naked models dressed only in fresh white underwear and fresh white Converse Chuck Taylors, designed by Koh, sat on stools air painting on white canvases. I thought to myself, “no mini-gold plated feces?” not even a miniature one dangling from the shoe laces, not a trace.

Koh??™s approach to the design of his shoe focused on subtraction. ???I wanted to keep the DNA of the Chuck Taylor intact, while reducing the seams, and smoothing out the shoe??™s surfaces as much as possible???. Terence replaced the usual curve of the ankle with a vertical construction to give the shoe a clean square look. A smoothed-out version of the signature Converse tread on the sole combines with a white on white All Star rubber license plate on the heel to round out the ultra-clean look and feel of the shoe.

Terence Koh, born in Beijing China who grew up in Mississauga, Ontario – Canada, is self described as ”the Naomi Campbell of the art world,” in the New York Times.  Koh is an artist with work that includes sculptures, installations, performances and artist books. Categorized as an artist of New Gothic Art, Koh has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad.  His work has been the subject of several major solo exhibitions including Love for Eternity, a mid-career retrospective at MUSAC (Leon, Spain); Captain Buddha, Schirn Kunsthalle (Frankfurt, Germany); Dirty Blind God, de Pury & Luxembourg, (Zurich, Switzerland); Terence Koh Whitney Museum of American Art, (New York). Most art collectors don’t put up with a lot of bullshit, but Koh has gold-plated and sold his feces for $500,000 to collectors!  Holy shit!  Genius.

As a contributor to 1HUND(RED), 10% of the net wholesale price of Terence’s shoe will go to The Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa, giving consumers an opportunity to become agents of change and offering a way to turn design into power. The Terence Koh for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoe launches exclusively at Opening Ceremony in New York and Los Angeles Saturday, November 21st and select retailers globally.  Shoes will retail for $150 and will be available in sizes 7 – 13.
