French fashion house Maison Martin Margiela has announced a new collection with Converse, which will see a revamp of the brand’s All Stars Chuck ’70 and Jack Purcells.
The “Converse Maison Martin Margiela First String Collection” marks the second time the two labels have collaborated, this time evolving to put the designer’s signature Blanc de Meudon paint onto leather versions of these iconic trainers, which will excitingly peel away with each wear to reveal a new colour underneath.
The cool, colour-changing kicks will start off in all-white, with the underlaying colour of the ultra-soft, premium, hand-painted leather shoes slowly unveiled over time – the Converse All Star Chuck ’70s baring their original heritage colours of “Amber Glow” or “True Navy” and the Converse Jack Purcells being revealed in their original “Azure Blue” or “Biking Red” shade.
Speaking of their work with Converse, Maison Martin Margiela said;
“We’re pleased to offer a new expression of such a great collaboration between Converse and the Maison.
The story of two like-minded brands continues with the evolution of the sneaker collection where personal expression is at the forefront, revealing the expression of vibrant colors shining through an incognito white coat that ages with time.”
The limited edition collection is available to purchase at selected Converse stores and via Maison Martin Margiela outlets for a starting price of $250 – but move quickly, as these trophy-piece trainers are sure to vanish fast.
