Cop or Can: COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star '70 Collection

COMME des GARÇONS and its PLAY imprint team up once again with Converse for what will undoubtedly be another popular collab. Summer 2015 finds us face-to-shoe with a brand new set of sneaks and that signature red PLAY logo. COMME and Converse switch it up a bit this go round as they swap out the newer Chuck Taylor All Star in favor of a premium 70's version of the OG silhouette. But, the brand didn't stray too far off course in the colorway department, sticking to the same black and off white scheme as their predecessors complete with contrasting heel stripes and a large PLAY logo.

The full collection will launch exclusively at Dover Street Market London, Dover Street Market New York and COMME des GARÇONS New York on May 14th before hitting additional CdG stockists on May 15th.

So, cop or can? I wasn't lucky enough to cop the last collection so, I'll probably be keeping my eyes peeled for a pair of these high tops. So, yea. We're going with cop. :)

#ChicksNKicks Meet NYFW in Adam Selman's S|S 2015 Collection

OG Converse Chucks enjoyed some time in the New York Fashion Week spotlight as emerging designer Adam Selman debuted his Spring/Summer 2015 Collection in the Big Apple this week. Sneaker-loving stars like Rihanna flock to Adam's designs and now, we see why. The creative fashion golden man displayed quite a bit of creativity as he paired solid blacks, reds, and colorful whites with pearl embellishments to deliver a youthfully classic ready-to-wear mix. Models carrying number cards walked the catwalk in pleated trousers, teeny bra-like crop tops, denim tweed, and grown-up overalls all culminiating with Chuck Taylor overload as Selman opted to pair everything from floor-length gowns to bathing suits with the sneaker.

Vintage visors and sleek cat-eye sunglasses, a collaboration with Le Specs, brought even more of Selman's retro world to life as his first full NYFW runway show dazzled us all...even those of us who were paying more attention to the shoes.

Take a peek at our favorite Selman picks below. Which looks would you rock?
