As fashonistas gathered at the City of Light for this weeks’ Haute couture shows, footwear label CONVERSE was more than ready to greet them with the Jack Purcell Pop-Up Shop. A mesh-mash of old and new, the shop offers an introduction (or reintroduction) of the CONVERSE classic along with its quirky beginning as sneakers for badminton. Choice antiques, badminton racquets, to a large birdcage as reference to the feathered shuttlecock, the store will showcase the new Spring 2011 line of Jack Purcell and the Johnny. The retail location will also introduce the Helen for the first time, a model named after Purcell’s wife specifically created for women. All more of a reason for fashion shows’ long legged beauties to swap their painful stilettos. The pop-up opened today and will be operational for the next 3 weeks. via: U.S.N.B.P

Pretty cool. Any chance of a store opening up in Ottawa? I think Ottawa should get a store, being the capital of Canada and all!! (great-grand-daughter)

As one of Jack Purcell's granddaughters, I think this is an awesome idea and a wonderful tribute to my grandfather!! Will there be a pop-up store in Toronto sometime soon?
