Converse x Maison Martin Margiela First String S/S 2014 Collection
Converse and French fashion house Maison Martin Margiela are collaborating once again. The S/S 2014 Converse Maison Martin Margiela First String collection looks to expand on the original furthering the white overpaint concept with the Converse All Star Chuck ’70 and Converse Jack Purcell sneakers in premium leather. The pure white hand-painted detail is layered on the very soft leather. Each pair is meant to break in with more wear with the overpaint loosening its hold and gradually cracking to reveal a hidden gem of bold color. They’re complete with the Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue, and both silhouettes are accented with painted and non-painted laces. Look for these at select global Converse, Maison Martin Margiela, and Converse First String outlets as well as Converse.com for a suggested retail price of $250 USD for the Margiela First String.
