CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR ‘70 FIRST STRING X MISSONI

Converse created in collaboration with the Italian fashion house, Missoni a fresh new Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 and Deck Star sneakers.

Drawing references from the urban surfer as he travels along the southern European and north African coastlines in search of the next great surf break, and a slice of bohemian hedonism. The collection is a visual narrative of his journey where European style converges with subtle Maghrebian influences.

Both are decked out in loom knits, multi-stitch jacquard that forms the uppers of both the Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 ox, and Deck Star slip-on sneakers. A space-dyed mix of cotton, rayon and flax creating a vivid, rich textural surface with yellow, earthy accents. Solid egret white midsoles, toecaps and heel tabs. The collection is completed with Missoni’s signature terracotta canvas on the sockliners.

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 and Deck Star Missoni sneakers will be available for purchase starting Friday, July 17, 2015. at selected retailers. While this Thursday, 290 SQM will host a special release party with music and free drinks starting from 6 o’clock.
