Converse and Comme de Garcon Make a Chuck Taylor
Converse along with fashion house Comme des Garcons debuted the follow up to its 2010 collaborative Chuck Taylor All-Star, the Comme des Garcon “Play x Converse” Jack Purcell. Heavily influenced by casual fashion and urban lifestyle, Comme des Garcons’ line is emblematic to the playful nature of fashion rather than staunch, like other fashion houses have implied they are. A little bit enigmatic, a little bit rebellious, the cartoon heart with eyes by New York-base artist Filip Pagowski looks right at home on the canvas of the Jack Purcell Converse. The shoe will be available in 2 different colors, black and cream, with the option of a red or black heart. These are slightly more youthful than we would prefer but all the same they are an interesting shoe, and the combination alone makes this interesting.
