Designed by Filip Pagowski himself, the Converse x Comme Des Garçons collaboration started all the way back in 2009 when the two iconic brands met to design a series of 4 different styles. When initially creating the world renowned collaboration – Converse reached into their archive to pick out a Chuck Taylor silhouette first used in the 1950s for US military.
The first drop consisted of a white and black option in either high top or oxford styles and was a complete success. Featuring the brand’s unmistakable heart logo, they quickly became a favourite of fashion editors and street style stars alike. Since this initial collab, the brands have reunited on several occasions since to create more colourways and styles – with each drop being just as successful as the last. Originally released in 2009.
Comme Des Garçons, is a Japanese fashion label which translates to mean ‘Like Boys’ in French, and is based in both Tokyo and Paris. The brand has had a major success, especially with their collaboration with Converse. The signature Comme Des Garçons ‘Play’ logo consists of a red heart with two eyes, this features on all the converse collaborations in many different ways. All styles are available in both black or white and hi-top or low-top making them desirable to a wide range of people.
