Missoni Creates Limited Edition Converse Sneakers [Pics]
High-fashion meets streetwear in this footwear collaboration.
Italian luxury brand Missoni has once again created a range for the Spring 2012 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collection. The sneakers come in three color-ways and feature Missoni’s signature zigzag knit pattern. Two of the silhouettes are for women only and come in muted shades of green, and white. The unisex silhouette is multi-stitched with space-dyed cotton and is in navy blue with white accents.
The shoes retail for $200 and are available in the U.S. at Missoni’s flagship store in Rodeo Drive and also some boutique shops. They can also be purchased online at Converse.
During a webinar on Thursday July 13th at 10am, the PSFK research team will be presenting findings from our most recent report, Future of Manufacturing. For this project, we looked at how brands and organizations can meet elevated consumer needs and combat increased market competition by leveraging connected technologies that give total insights to manage their end-to-end operations and the opportunity to integrate cutting-edge technologies to reinvent supply chains.
