I walked into a cafe in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the other day and I noticed three people wearing what appeared to be tie-dye shirts. I was a bit confused (did I somehow end up in Portland, Oregon?) and so I asked one of them about it. He told me that the shirts were not “tie-dye” they were “dip-dye” and he looked at me like I was crazy that I didn’t know this was all the rage. At any rate, the first thing I did when I got home was Google “dip-dye” and yes, he was right. Models like Charlotte Free or actors like Dakota Fanning are all over the dip-dye hair.
Converse has jumped on this bandwagon and has recently released a collection of dip-dyed Chuck Taylor sneakers in four of the season’s hottest colors. The coolest thing about these are that each shoe is unique because they are actually dip-dyed. Nice job, Converse!
