What a wonderful combination!
The iconic Finnish textile team have collaborated with Converse to produce some of the best designed women's footwear for Spring. Vibrant prints from as far back as the 1960's by designers such as Maija and Kristina Isola have been paired with classics like Chuck Taylor designed trainers.
“We are excited about partnering with such an inspiring and iconic company as Converse. This enriching collaboration brings together two brands that both have a distinctive idiom and a unique heritage. The two companies have always walked their own path, and we also share the same unpretentious and joyful approach to life. We hope that this positive attitude will be transmitted to the people who will be sporting the Converses in the vibrant Marimekko designs,” says Minna Kemell-Kutvonen, Creative Director of Marimekko.
The shoes will be sold globally from February 2011 at selected Marimekko and Converse stores.
