in store: converse x missoni
Converse and Missoni have paired up yet again, with the iconic All Stars kitted out in Missoni’s signature multi-coloured weave.
Converse are the kind of shoes that lend themselves well to a refresh, encouraging creative outfits of all sorts to cast their own aesthetic onto the shoes iconic silhouette. In their fifth collaboration together, the limited edition 2012 spring collection for Converse and Missoni consists of two women’s versions and a refreshed unisex option. This time, the women’s sneakers are rendered in the signature Missoni zig-zag, the first in hues of cream, gold, silver and white, while the second shoe is decked out in cream, gold, silver and teal. The unisex offering sees the famous multi-stitch space-dyed cotton in navy and cream. All three designs are complete with leather detailing on the tongue, toecap, heel tab and lining, giving birth to yet another highly recognisable rendition of the Chuck Taylor. We’ll take one of each thanks.
