Maison Martin Margiela x Converse First String 2013 Collection

Converse goes high fashion with its Maison Martin Margiela collaboration. The two brands have hand-painted, in Magiela's iconic white, two classic Converse shoes —Chuck Taylor All Star Hi and Jack Purcell. What's interesting is that the entire shoe has be doused in paint rather than created from a selection of materials or coloured fabric. That means the wear-in process will cause the exterior to chip and fade according to the wearer's lifestyle, creating an individual identity for each pair. The shoes retail for $200 a pop.
