In a move that suggests a Dethklok collection can’t be too far out, Converse debuts its second collaboration with the Jamie Hewlett x Damon Albarn cartoon band project Gorillaz.  This Gorillaz x Converse All Star Hi Motorcycle Jacket adds varsity-style patches to the now familiar zip-placketed biker Chuck, adding layers both textural and narrative.  Green-leaning camouflage soles, branded tags and distinctive artwork are a sign of five more pairs to come and this first drop from the second Converse x Gorillaz teamup is now available at select retailers like Size?

Following up on its Spring 2012 collaboration with Converse is another mind-blowing capsule of Gorillaz x Converse Chuck Taylors in six different styles. Designed by Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett, each Chuck Taylor (5 Highs and one Low) embodies the distinct character prints, but the sad news is that this Gorillaz crop is all you’re going to get from them, as the band has confirmed a hiatus of sorts. Regardless of what may boil down, Gorillaz’ decade-long influence and impact in pop culture won’t be forgotten, so celebrate the band’s iconic status by copping one of the six Gorillaz x Converse Chucks now at Converse.

Gorillaz x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star – Fall/Winter 2012

Gorillaz called on more help than ever for this spring’s ‘DoYaThing’ single featuring Mr. LCD Soundsystem himself James Murphy as well as the most compelling reason to invest in million-blade razor tech, Andre 3000.  This song isn’t the sign of an upcoming album as in the case of many singles, but rather a project started when Converse approached Gorillaz lead Jamie Hewlett to design a sneaker capsule.  The power of collaborative marketing shines bright here, as not only do we get an upbeat MP3, but also a new round of Gorillaz x Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars for the second half of 2012.  Those familiar with the group’s distinctive artwork will know what to expect from these canvas hightops, but the addition of the Chuck Taylor Leather Jacket and patches instead of printing has that black pair feeling like that ‘G’ patch stands for ‘captain’.  Check out the entire set after the jump below and stick with Sneaker News for release info.  via FRESHNESS

For a true sneakerhead, nothing can rival the feeling of a pickup you’ve been eagerly anticipating, but this latest collaborative release from Converse might manage to take it even one step further by making you even happier courtesy of a little sunshine in a bag.  The Gorillaz x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star we previewed here on Sneaker News last November is finally on the way to retailers, though the timing seems curious given the nearly significant gap since The Fall and no word of an upcoming album on the way.  Perhaps that’s why we’re adding one new design to the offering, a sketch-laden black-on-white design that utilizes the other pair’s unique camo pattern on the sockliner.  Click through to see more of both pairs and look for them at a Converse retailer like Millennium Shoes.

The latest instance of sneaker scene simulacra sees a band who at some level does not exist collaborate on a new release of the model that’s perhaps the single most identifiable in the entire history of athletic footwear.  The Gorillaz x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star hightop was designed by the group’s co-founder, artist/designer Jamie Hewlett, who applied a novel camouflage print that might remind you of another primate-branded clothing label that rose to prominence right around the time of Hewlett’s band’s 2001 debut LP.  So is the Gorillaz’ camo print better than Bape’s?  Check them out in greater detail after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for updates on these and the other ‘Three Artists. One Song’ collaborations scheduled to release next February.
