Missoni x Converse Archive Project

Taking a trip into the Missoni archive for inspiration, the Italian knitwear company has once again teamed up with Converse to create some new limited edition sneakers. The Pro Leather and Auckland Racers all append the Missoni multi-stitch, multi-color and grayscale gradient knits to go with the F/W 2012 collection, available this Friday exclusively at Colette. Deadstock Missoni fabrics and textiles were used for this collaboration, the third between the two iconic companies. In addition to the release, the duo tapped London-based artist Gary Card to curate a psychedelic installation at colette that reflects the all-over print motifs of the sneakers.
