Keds x The Whitney Museum of American Art

Photo: Kicks on Fire

The fashion and art worlds continue to collide as the Whitney Museum partners with Keds to sponsor the Whitney Museum of American Art’s summer session. In order to commemorate the project, they’ve enlisted Jenny Holzer to design the KedsWhitney collection.

Holzer, an American artist best known for creating light installations that feature thought-provoking messages, has chosen to stamp Keds’ classic black and white sneakers with the phrase “Protect Me From What I Want.” It’s a phrase Holzer has returned to repeatedly in her work, emblazing it on everything from T-shirts to condoms. The collection will be available July 8th at Bloomingdales nationwide. We’ll be recommending it to all of our friends who constantly complain that their Vans just aren’t conceptual enough.
