It was back in August last year that I first heard about the Comme des Garcons/Converse collaboration resulting in Comme Play Chucks. The excitement nearly overwhelmed me. Fabric was supposed to be stocking them here in Auckland but there was some problem or other and they never seemed to arrive. So when I was in Paris I stopped by the Comme store and picked up a pair. Cream high tops with the red heart. They were €86, which is kind of funny because normal Converse Chuck Taylors are around the €95 mark in Paris. When have you ever heard of Comme des Garcons being the cheaper option? I've worn them once already, to the wedding on Saturday, paired with my blue cotton Crane Brothers suit, new blue GAP shirt and new blackwatch check UNIQLO cotton tie. Only one problem - they clash with my beige socks. Might have to invest in something new.
I LIKE YOU!
