Converse x Comme des Garçons PLAY: Just Restocked
Implemented in 2002, Comme des Garçons PLAY acts as a diffusion line to the primary Comme des Garçons line. Also known as CDG PLAY, Comme des Garçons PLAY represents a more functional and casual version of the primary Comme des Garçons brand. The sub-label primarily focuses on non-conforming styles that appeal to the younger generations. This can be found through the iconic bug-eyed red heart motif that is the face of the entire line. Designed by graphic artist Filip Pagowski, the bug-eyed red heart motif combined with the brand’s premium wardrobe essentials has resulted in the Comme des Garçons PLAY brand maintaining its position at the forefront of the fashion industry.
The Converse brand was first introduced in 1908 by Marquis Mills Converse in Massachusetts. Best known for its Chuck Taylor All Star line of sneakers, Converse rose to popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, specifically among youth subcultures and the overall counterculture movement like artists, skateboarders, and more. Converse sneakers are nothing short of a cultural icon, and their classic, casual style emphasizes a timeless design that is embraced by millions globally and in countless style variations. Converse sneakers were initially designed as basketball shoes, including a thick rubber outsole and canvas upper encompassing the ankle. The sneakers provided optimal comfort and support that was necessary on the court. Converse became a footwear staple worldwide and continues to embody the brand’s original spirit.
With that, Converse introduces the restocked Converse x Comme des Garçons PLAY All Star Chuck ‘70 Hi. Available in various colors, the silhouette starts with its durable canvas upper and exposed embroidered stitching at the seams. A contrasting stripe can be found at the heel, while a signature Converse All Star patch can be found on one of the sides. On the other side is a printed signature bug-eyed red heart motif. The lace-up closure secures the design, while the rubber midsole and outsole offer a durable finish. The same aesthetics can be found on the Converse x Comme des Garcons Play All Star Chuck ‘70 Low for a different silhouette.
