New Missoni for Converse collection drops April 14
The fifth collection of collaborative kicks from Italian luxury brand Missoni and U.S. footwear brand Converse is set to hit retail on Saturday, Converse announced Thursday.
The Spring 2012 Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collection includes two women’s-only silhouettes with uppers in Missoni’s signature zigzag knit -- one in green and white with a dash of silver and gold metallic sparkle and another in more muted shades of white and tan with accents in pale peach, silver and gold. The unisex silhouette is rendered in the Italian label's signature multi-stitch space-dyed cotton in a color palette of navy blue and white.
The shoes, which retail for $200, will be available locally at Missoni's 469 Rodeo Drive flagship, the Fred Segal Center on Melrose, Undefeated's Santa Monica, La Brea and Silver Lake boutiques and online at Converse.com starting April 14.
