If you loved the first collaboration between Converse and Missoni, you’re going to love the Fall 2010 styles! Continuing on the success of the Spring 2010 collaboration, two new patterns are being released for Fall. The classic Chuck Taylor All Star shoe feature black and white space dyed knits covering the sides and toecap, finished off with soft sheep leather in “Missoni Brick Red” on the split tongue, heel pull tab and partially lined collar, each pair is unique due to the space dyed technique.
Two patterns featured this season are bold horizontal stripes and the notorious Missoni zigzag pattern, created by a unique technique called Raschel revived by the Missoni house in the late “60s for high-end fashion. The shoes will launch in early September at Missoni boutiques (New York and Beverly Hills), Aloha Rag (New York), Canvas (Malibu) & Jeffrey’s (New York and Atlanta), and also at select retailers globally. These shoes retail price at $200 and will be available in unisex sizing 3 13. I bet more guys are going to dig this one especially since they did for the first round already.
“The possibility of collaborating with Converse was very flattering to me, a fascinating chance of stylistic dialogue and interaction. I liked the idea that Converse and Missoni, with their very strong, well recognizable and universally known identities, could get together in such a special way,” says Mrs. Angela Missoni, Creative Director of Missoni.
