Occasionally, it’s fitting to splurge some extra cash on your wardrobe. In our opinion, Missoni’s collaboration with Converse Chuck Taylor fits appropriately.
After successfully mingling high-fashion with accessible streetwear for Spring 2010, the two iconic brands have paired up again to release more Fall 2010 styles. Designs include Missoni’s iconic zigzag pattern called Raschel, featuring soft-sheepskin leather in ‘Missoni Brick Red’ on the lining of the shoe collar, pull tag and shoe tongue. The shoes, offered in unisex sizes 3-13, will be listed at $200 and available at Missoni boutiques, Jeffrey’s, and other suggested retail stores.
"The possibility of collaborating with Converse was very flattering to me, a fascinating chance of stylistic dialogue and interaction," said Missoni Creative Director, Angela Missoni. "I liked the idea that Converse and Missoni, with their very strong, well recognizable and universally known identities, could get together in such a special way."
