Fashion | Converse X Maison Martin Margiela
Converse launches its second collaboration with French fashion house, Maison Martin Margiela! The latest Converse Maison Martin Margiela First String collection extends the original white overpaint concept with the Converse All Star Chuck ‘70 and Converse Jack Purcell sneakers in ultra-soft premium leather.
The more the Converse Maison Martin Margiela sneakers are worn, the more the overpaint loosens its hold, elegantly cracking to reveal the hidden, bold color. Original heritage colorways from the Converse archives are slowly revealed through four distinct styles: Amber Glow and True Navy with the Converse All Star Chuck ’70 and Azure Blue and Biking Red with the Converse Jack Purcell. The sneaker also features the discreet yet distinguishable Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue, and both silhouettes are accented with painted and non-painted lace options.
The Converse Maison Martin Margiela sneaker collection will be available for purchase globally on Friday, May 23 at SSENSE.com and will retail for $250 CDN.
