Marimekko, a Finland based design house, is collaborating for the 2nd time this year with sneakers giant Converse. This time Marimekko has gone through it’s past to get some inspiration on materials and has truly come up with the goods. What they have dug up is some colourful patterns that really move away from the usual solid colours that we normally see on the Converse All Star high, low and Jack Purcell. Expect to grab these online and at certain Converse stockists from June 23rd 2011.
“The collaboration between Marimekko and Converse feels so natural,” says Noora Niinikoski, Marimekko Design Manager and Fashion Designer. “Both companies have a strong, unique heritage and have always walked their own paths. There’s something very special about this kind of timeless lifestyle, and I think these shoes are a great example of that.”
