As the evidence from the most recent snow storm begin to thaw out, so it also marks the arrival of Spring 2010. In accordance with the changing season, designer Rei Kawakubo launched the updated line-up for her COMME des GARÇONS PLAY collection, including an updated collaboration with the centenarian footwear maker Converse. First previewed last year and based on the staple canvas sneaker, Chuck Taylor All-Star, the COMME des GARÇONS PLAY variants included hi and low editions in black or off-white colorways. A vulcanized outsole outsole in white along with a vertical heel strip in contrast colorways, adorned on each version on the exterior sidewalls is a printed "bugged eyes" heart by graphic artist Filip Pagowski, a signature of COMME des GARÇONS PLAY.
All 4 models are now available at COMME des GARÇONS retail locations and COMME des GARÇONS PLAY retailers such as End Clothing in England.
