I love the Converse x Marimekko collection, so happy that they’re releasing a Holiday 2011 collection. The shoes are decked out in Marimekko’s signature bold prints in festive holiday colors and styles. The styles includes the Jack Purcell Helen, the Chuck Taylor All Star and the Chuck Taylor All Star PJ shoe.
Prints selected for the holiday collaboration include both timeless Marimekko classics as well as newer designs created by influential Marimekko designers Maija Isola and Maija Louekari. The Unikko print, Marimekko’s iconic bright poppy flower pattern originally from 1964 by Maija Isola appears in the collection in a new coloring created by Maija’s daughter Kristina Isola. Maija Isola is also the designer behind the Paprika (bell pepper) pattern, originally from 1965, presented in a fascinating purple-cream colorway, and the more delicate Varpunen (sparrow) print from 1966 that appears in the shoes in a sophisticated navy-silver tone. The Poni (pony) print by Maija Louekari in black-silver and black-white colorways offers a strong graphic alternative in the Converse x Marimekko holiday collection that otherwise features a captivating tonal color palette fit for the season.
The Converse x Marimekko collection will be available nationwide and globally at premium retail outlets and online at http://www.converse.com beginning this month.

The classic Chuck Taylor All Star shoes get hit with a splash of color for the holiday season. The Paprika print adorns the Chuck Taylor All Star High shoe in rich purple and cream.

Chuck Taylor All Star PJ
Slim and sleek, the Chuck Taylor All-Star PJ shoe returns to the Converse x Marimekko collection for the holidays.

I’m a huge fan of Converse and love their collaborations, I found this Aloha Rag x Converse Jack Purcell Zip Shoe pretty damn cute. I own a few any Jack Purcell shoes but I might need a pair of these. These shoes were made to celebrate Aloha Rag’s 20th anniversary featuring the high-top “Zip” silhouette, an off-white sole with an upper that combines crinkle blue, white leather and cool blue linen. As a part of Converse First String, Converse’s premium product line that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and pure expression, only 166 pairs will be available. The shoe will be available at Aloha Rag stores in New York City and Honolulu and online at aloharag.com beginning July 1, 2011. The shoe will be available at Converse First String retailers beginning July 15. Shoes will be available for the suggested retail price of $120 in sizes 3 – 13. 🙂
