From where the high-fashion Paris universe of Maison Martin Margiela meets the tried and true Americana of Converse comes the second coming of a collection that matches a classic sneaker with a (paint) splash of couture.

Legendary graffiti artist Chaz Bojorquez lends his design style to Converse for an update on their iconic Chuck Taylor All Star hi models. The limited edition sneakers feature many a fine detail, including hexagonal lace eyelets, woven waxed laces, embroidered heel logo, printed insoles and most boldly the Los Angeles artist’s “Senor Suerte” skull on the [...]


You might remember The Elf from a little column she wrote here at Lost In a Supermarket called Bureaucracy for Breakfast, where she unloaded on the wolrd the various trials and tribulations of being an unemployed woman in the nadir of an economic recession.
