Everyone has a pair of Converses floating around in the back of their closet. With spring just within our reach, it’s the perfect time to check out the new collaboration between Converse and iconic Finnish brand, Marimekko. You are probably familiar with Marimekko’s bright, funky fabrics, which come in the form of everything from slouchy, shoulder purses to tablecloths to tunics. The Unikko fabric from the 1960s is the brand’s most recognized.
The kicks come in four different fabrics, with an assortment of fun colors. The fabric is from original patterns from the 1960s. They’re available in the All Star in hi-top or lo-top form, as well as in the Jack Purcell Helen style. Prices range from $75 to $85 a pair. My favorite is the Jack Purcells in the white and red print.
Check out this video, which features a designer from Marimekko’s thoughts and some awesome footage of Helsinki, Finland, where Marimekko is based. Get your pair of these scrumptious, feminine shoes and welcome spring with open arms.
