Missoni have teamed up with Converse for their 5th collobration. We’ve got 12 pairs each in all 3 colours available from Sat 14th April.
An update to earlier collections, the new editions of the highly sought-after collaboration include two women’s-only silhouettes featuring Missoni’s signature zig-zag raschel knit and a unisex offering using their famous multi-stitch space-dyed cotton.
One of the world’s most original and timeless designs, the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe returns for Spring 2012 as a muse for Missoni’s legendary knits. New this season, Converse works with Missoni to create two women’s-only versions of the shoe with a touch of metallic sparkle added to Missoni’s signature zig zag, knit used in the uppers. Both look stylish and feminine – one in green and white with silver and gold metallic detailing; and another in white and tan with subtle hues of peach accented with silver and gold. Making them truly stand-out, both models include specially constructed white leather rands and toe-wraps embossed with classic Chuck Taylor All Star detailing. The result is an ultra-luxurious, hand-crafted look and feel – surely to be some of the most sought after sneakers of the season.
In addition to the women’s-only versions, a fresh unisex model comes in Missoni’s exclusive multi-stitch, space-dyed fabric in sharp hues of navy and white. Familiar from past Converse and Missoni collaborations, each shoe includes premium leather on the tongue’s upper, logos, heel-pull-tabs and toe caps.
Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level.
