Comme Des Garçons collaboration with Converse is back again this year and it’s very colourful!
The two labels have met in 2009 for an unexpected collaboration. From one side, the very popular Converse with its mythic Chuck Taylor All Star. On the other side, the Japanese conceptual Maison Comme des Garçons. Together, they created the very popular “Converse Play Comme Des Garçons”, the branded heart with eyes representing the Japanese brand’s logo.
Released in black and white, platform and low version, the sneaker has immediately created a buzz in the fashion sphere making it one of the trendiest fashion collaborations ever.
The success of the collaboration was great which made the two brands collaborate again in 2013, 2015 and more recently 2017.
Recently, in May 2020, the Japanese Maison has announced its new collaboration with Converse and this time the choice is more varied: pastel colours in-line with the pastel trend this season still in low and high versions with the emblematic heart on the side.
The collection is a limited edition, available online at Doverstreetmarket.com
