Again, more exciting news has arrived at Cloggs.co.uk this morning, with the announcement of the release of amazing new Converse trainers. These are no ordinary Converse though, these are Converse that have been made in collaboration with French fashion house Givenchy.
There were rumours about this collaboration last year, but the long awaited partnership has finally come to fruition. Converse has seen a number of collaborations in recent years, as well as releasing some fantastic Converse limited edition shoes. Some of the most successful include the DC Comics range of Converse which has flown off the shelves. This time the collaboration brings something different, with a heightened sense of class and luxury for Converse.
On behalf of Givenchy, Italian fashion designer, Riccardo Tisci is the man responsible for adding his fashion genius to the new Converse range. Tisci, is extremely well known for his love of gothic fashions, dramatic impact and minimalist designs. These are all qualities that can be seen in the Converse-Givenchy shoes that have been added to the Converse Addict line. The limited edition Converse is a pair of black, high impact high top Converse. Featuring a canvas upper, complete with a black leopard skin print, this pair of trainers oozes sophistication. Attention to detail has not been forgotten with intricate contrast detail piping as well as the stunning line of Givenchy studs that line the back of the shoes.
The Converse-Givenchy creation is set to retail at around about £220. However, this style is an exclusive for Japan, so don’t get your hopes up just yet to get your hands on a pair. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the success of these shoes leads to them being rolled out in the UK as well. In the mean time, check out the range of Limited Edition Converse at Cloggs.co.uk.
