Collaborations between the iconic Converse brand and the avant-garde label Comme Des Garçons have always been successful. It is for this reason the third reunion, launched May 28th, has been so highly anticipated. The, Comme des Garçons PLAY for Converse Pro Leather collection, sees the combination of everyone’s favourite basketball shoe, with the quirky style of the Japanese label. The product of this blend is a line of shoes that salute the recognisable signatures of both brands, presented with a modern and playful twist. Each shoe in the collection bursts with an animated vibrancy that makes an exciting statement.
Comme Des Garçons founder, Rei Kawakubo, is a designer who has always celebrated the creative and playful spirit in her bold label. This spirit is fully reflected in the ‘PLAY’ collection, which features the brands identifiable, hearts with eyes logo pattern, on the casual footwear. What is most notable about this range is the way the collaboration has evolved, something the Converse brand has done continuously, since its debut in 1976. The ‘Play’ collection shows exactly how these two brands complement one another and solidifies the idea that the third time is a charm.
