If you love Japanese concept label and all their lush accessories *tick!* and are heavily or even casually into Converse sneakers *tick!* then this is a good week for you – as they’re reuniting for another HAWT collaboration! Woooo!

It’s building on the notable success of two previous collaborations, seeing iconic Chuck Taylor makers reunite with fashion authority Comme des Garçons for the third time with four new styles of the iconic Converse Pro Leather sneaker.

How do you like THEM apples? You’re basically looking at some seriously cute prints all over the iconic sneakers – leather ones if you please – so we’re thinking the £100 price tag actually represents something of a bargain.

Comme des Garçons PLAY is a casual, streetwear-influenced line – a sort of sub-division of avant-garde Japanese label founded by Rei Kawakubo. The Pro Leather style is a new take on the sneaker that debuted in 1976 as a performance basketball shoe and has since evolved into an iconic lifestyle sneaker, fact fans.

All four styles will be available from 1st June for £95.00 for Ox low top and £100 for the Mid at doverstreetmarket.com and at Dover Street Market,17-18 Dover Street,  London W1S 4LT

We’re sure it won’t be long before we’re seeing visions of Cara D and Co. rocking them out all over the place. Nice.
