BREAKING NEWS FOR SHOE LOVERS WORLDWIDE!!!
On May 28th, 2013 Converse will launch the Comme des Garçons PLAY for Converse Pro Leather collection globally. Building on the notable success of two previous collaborations, Converse reunites with fashion authority Comme des Garçons to create four new styles of the iconic Converse Pro Leather sneaker.
Comme des Garçons, a casual, streetwear-influenced line from the avant-garde Japanese label founded by Rei Kawakubo, adds the Pro Leather to its design repertoire, creating a new take on the sneaker that debuted in 1976 as a performance basketball shoe and has since evolved into an iconic lifestyle sneaker.
Comme des Garçons’ signature quirky heart-with-eyes logo was designed to create four new sporty versions of the iconic Converse Pro Leather shoe. The playful pattern celebrates the creative sprit that both the Converse and Comme des Garçons brands are famous for! The print was placed randomly on each pair of shoes to make each sneaker look unique in its own design.
I know I’d wear these sneakers all the time! I live when designers mix comfort with designs that are playful and fun! Why not take advantage of this and two of the hottest brands in sportswear that have come together to create such a funky & fresh shoe! They will go great with any daytime outfit! Wether your going for a playful summer look on the boardwalk playing carnival games or strutting down the streets of Soho on a hot summer day! However you decide to wear them, they will absolutely be the focus of your look! I mean, come on! You should absolutely design an outfit around them anyway, with love because Comme des Garçons and Converse should always be the stand out pieces when wearing them, either together or separate! Luckily for you, because of this fabuloud collaboration you can now wear them together!! This collection can even transition well into the fall! Don’t we all love transitional clothing and accessories?
The Comme des Garçons PLAY for Converse Pro Leather is available in Milk and Black Mid and Ox” silhouettes. All styles will be available on Dover Street Market’s website and at the Comme des Garçons NYC store starting May 28, in Paris and London starting June 1 and at Comme des Garçons stores in Tokyo and throughout Asia starting June 21 for a suggested retail price of $130-140.
