Latest Converse Collaborations

Check out the latest Converse collaborations - what do you guys think of them?

There's the Hudson's Bay Company (Canada's premium retailer) Jack Purcell sneaker collection. Designed in the heritage of the iconic Hudson's Bay multi-stripe blanket and signature colours. The actual woolen blanket is used in these one of a kind styles!

Another very cool collaboration is with avant-garde French fashion house Maison Martin Margiela. The collection features Chuck Taylor All Star and the Jack Purcell sneakers, each completely hand-painted in Maison Martin Margiela's iconic white paint.

They naturally crack and shed their outer coat of paint to reveal the original colours beneath. The more the sneakers are worn, the more their personality and colour is revealed. "The Maison has always been obsessed with white; it is used as a layer to give an incognito feeling. A sort of poetry, with the passage of time, the shoe asserts itself," says Maison Martin Margiela.

Interesting..... : )
