COMME des GARÇONS PLAY, though often looked at as lesser relative to mainline, HOMME PLUS, BLACK, and the like, is still quite notable for one thing: the PLAY Heart. Designed by Polish artist Filip Pagowski, the wide-eyed graphic adorned tees, hoodies, cardigans, and even the beloved Converse Chuck Taylor. The latter has made waves throughout the streetwear scene, and though now considered overplayed, the collaboration still lives on and likely sells well to boot. Today marks yet another return, though the two are finally going against the grain as they revisit the Jack Purcell after over a decade.

And how they’ve done so is rather novel as well. Rather than stick the heart right along the profile like previous iterations, the Japanese label took a bit of time with their placement. The print dresses the heel and side in oversized form, stopping abruptly right at its halfway point due to the midsole. These, then, wrap across the entire heel, clad in either black or red paint, both contrasted against the grey canvas backdrop. Foxing stripes color to their respective lead, branding marks the insole, and the signature cap toe tints a vintage-esque ecru.

For a better look, see the campaign imagery below. A release is due to hit DSM and Converse.com on April 1st.
