Converse and Marimekko first teamed up last season. The collection became very popular and now they are back with a fall collection.
The collection features the Chuck Taylor All Star and the Jack Purcell shoe, prints selected for Fall 2011 were created by the well-known Marimekko master Maija Isola as well as Marimekko’s young rising talent Maija Louekari. The collection features the most famous Marimekko print of all time, the Unikko design, the Paprika pattern, and also entirely new Marimekko prints designed for Converse are the Kaleidoskooppi and Poni patterns by Maija Louekari. Kaleidoskooppi, inspired by a kaleidoscope, and Poni, based on an image of round, plump hoof prints left by a small pony.
