Converse announced this new collaboration with music maestro's Gorillaz. The collection has 4 designs covered in graphics made purely for this project by Jamie Hewlett. All 4 designs will be available through Converse online store and select retailers from Thurs, February 23rd.

Personally I really don't like Converse sneakers at all and the designs on these aren't exactly doing much to convince me otherwise. Are Gorillaz over? or making a comback? or is this just sheerly a merchandising opportunity. I randomly ran into Damon Albarn in Kidrobot London before Christmas, guess i shoulda asked him.

    Andy Warhol may be best known for his depiction of Campbell's Soup cans, but my personal favorite is his Brillo Boxes, which are finally getting the Chuck Taylor All Star treatment.

    Well that escalated quickly. Earlier this week we got a few sneak previews of a collaboration between Converse and Coolrain Lee, so I assumed the street date was at least a few month out. Nope!
