After revealing the partnership through clandestine need-to-know eyes only and a short Youtube teaser video, Converse officially unveils the Maison Martin Margiela Collection focusing on the Chuck Taylor All Star and Jack Purcell. The collection includes four classic heritage colors from the Converse archives with off-white leather linings, but where do you see the color? That would be beneath the coat of Margiela’s iconic white paint on the upper (hand-painted, might we add). The Margiela x Converse Collection will be available this month at select Converse retailers for $200 so continue on for the official look and stay tuned for more updates.

converse margiela Maison Martin Margiela x Converse   Teaser Video

The latest high fashion send up of the Converse classics will come from none other than Maison Martin Margiela. Details on the project are pretty slim at the time of writing, but it looks like more than one silhouette will be part of the Collection (why else would it be called a Collection?). We can expect the shoes to go the painted route, mimicking a popular in-house tactic of Margiela’s. The shoes won’t reach up to the MMM benchmark in terms of price, but they look to be retailing at around Missoni/Converse levels (So, in the $200 range).

Converse is no stranger to pulling at the fabrics and patterns of outside entities-a practice they’ve mastered with the likes of their various Missoni projects. This time around they’re teaming up with Canada’s Hudson’s Bay Company and appropriating the style of their instantly recognizable multi-stripe blanket. That’s right, the same wool that is used in the production of those blankets is transferred over to the Converse Jack Purcell styles on display here. Continue reading to get a complete look at the collection and watch for the range of styles to launch exclusively at Hudson’s Bay Stores for prices in ranging from $120 to 140 starting on September 1st, 2013.

The word ‘Boro’ brings to mind the sections that make up a city, and though this newest Jack Purcell is indeed a pastiche of different regions, its name means something a little different.  The Converse First String Jack Purcell ‘Boro’ in fact takes its name from a Japanese technique of recycling indigo cloths originated during a time when people needed their clothes to last as long as possible.  The resulting JP patchwork has a unique character and should add even more as it ages, so take a look after the jump and look for these starting September 6th in Hong Kong at First String retailers.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars and Jack Purcells are two of the most thoroughly themed and colorway’d sneakers out there.  This latest drop from Converse’s top-tier First String collection is in line with the series’ premium reputation, two new pairs utilizing one of the world’s finest woolen materials.  This new ‘Cashmere Pack’ has the 1970s-style Chuck and JP lowtops taking on a navy blue cashmere weave whose stripes and twill have them feeling more like a warm flannel than the sweaters most commonly associated with this luxurious wool.  Look at both up close after the jump and find them at First String stores this Friday, August 9th.
