Marimekko give Converse a makeover
Now fun, bold geometric patterns, described by Marimekko’s Design Manager Noora Niinikoski as something like early “childhood patterns”, adorn the Converse sneakers. The patterns featured on the shoes include ‘tarha’ and ‘pikkusuomu’, designed by Annika Rimala in the 1960s, as well as ‘kirppu’, designed in 1980 by maija isola and her daughter Kristina.
The line solely for women will be sold globally from the beginning of February. Watch the story of the collaboration between Converse and Finnish textile icon Marimekko:
