Denmark designer Verner Panton provided the inspiration for these designs by Converse and Porter. Panton's fluid strokes and bright colors are all that's needed to inspire awesome accessories.

These Verner Panton styles are just in time for gift shopping this holiday season. Also see some of Panton's original work in the gallery above. Panton was known for his 60s style, which has made a comeback in the last decade.

Implications - Youth consumers are attracted to vintage and retro elements in fashion and as a general aesthetic. This stems from a desire to return to a simpler time. Companies can forge a meaningful connection with this group by drawing from previous decades.
