Missoni's signature zig-zag pattern somehow isn't wearing thin, even if all of your vintage cardigans are (don't worry, they look good that way). The house's attention to detail is what made them popular in the mod, mini-loving sixties, and their choice to continue in all but avoiding textile innovation, opting instead to showcase that same design model for decades has proven a success story among celebrities, the upper crust, and downtown fashion-fans alike. And since quick and easy all over prints are pretty much the status quo for high-low collaborations, Missoni's built-in branding come in handy for projects with, to name a few, Havianas, Target, Toywatch, Bric's luggage, and Converse (since 2010). That's why these new Missoni Chuck Taylors (announced today) are already a natural fit. Expect to see a lot less heels at the Missoni shows next season. The Converse x Missoni C.T. will be available exclusively as Nordstrom August 4th.
