CONVERSE by John Varvatos   The Weapon | Available Now

Thanks to the raucous opening act by DJ Q-Tip and a live jam from rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, designer John Varvatos celebrated his successful showing at the New York Fashion Week with an event like no other at his 315 Bowery flagship store, the former home of music club CBGB. The event also served as the debut of CONVERSE by John Varvatos – “The Weapon” Collection, the designer’s interpretation of CONVERSE Weapon sneakers. First seen on the basketball courts across the U.S. back in 1986, CONVERSE Weapon quickly became the “weapon of choice” for streetballers and pros alike.  In honor of his partnership with CONVERSE, now in its 10th year, Varvatos re-imagined the Weapon to be an extension of his hard charging design theme that is part biker chic and part rock n’ roll glam.  Fresh new colors, super soft premium leather, all on the classic silhouette, Varvatos slimmed down the overall form just a tad bit for an updated look. All are now available through John Varvatos retail locations and BLOOMINGDALE’S department stores for a suggested retail price of $170. There will also be an ultra-premium version available on December 1st for $250.
