Converse x Maison Martin Margiela First String Spring/Summer 2014 Collection
Converse and French fashion house Maison Martin Margiela are teaming up once again. The S/S 2014 Converse Maison Martin Margiela First String collection looks to expand on the original evolving white overpaint concept with the Converse All Star Chuck ’70 and Converse Jack Purcell sneakers in premium leather. The collaboration’s pure white hand-painted detail is layered atop the buttery soft leather. Each pair is meant to break in with more wear with the overpaint loosening its hold and gradually cracking to reveal the hidden, bold color. They’re finished off with the Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue, and both silhouettes are accented with painted and non-painted lace options. Look for these on May 23rd through select global Converse, Maison Martin Margiela, and Converse First String outlets as well as Converse.com for a suggested retail price of $250 USD.
