His methodical interpretations of rock & roll have made John Varvatos one of the more coveted designer to raise from the American fashion scene. Men's wear in particular, where there was virtually no labels or designers in between the preppy high society look promoted by Ralph Lauren and the likes, or the rugged everyday wear found on Levi's and Gap. In his Fall 2011 Footwear Collection with CONVERSE, Varvatos once again breached the confines of possibilities with appointments in premium leather, burnished suede, studs, and other lavish details usually found on more expensive footwear. All to be available starting next month at John Varvatos flagships, fine department stores, boutiques, and www.converse.com online shop.
