Following up to its popular collaborative COMME des GARÇONS x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 collection released earlier this year, the two iconic brands come together once again for a distinct footwear collection. This time around, Converse’s Pro Leather silhouette is reworked with CdG PLAY’s unmistakable heart logo.

The range features four variations that include two low-tops and two high-tops. Featuring a varying palette of black, white and red, the leather uppers feature the embroidered chevron logo distinct to this Converse model. A clean white rubber sole rounds off the look.

The collection currently retails between $135-140 USD and is available now at select retailers such as Feature and Dover Street Market.

Newly added to COMME des GARÇONS’s extensive range of scents — and following last year’s “GIRL” collab with Pharrell and KAWS — is “DOT” from the Japanese favorite.

Capturing “the mysterious scent and allure that penetrates the air of a park filled with Osmantus trees in bloom,” the scent boasts top notes of bitter orange, pepper, and leafy greens as olibanum enhances a bottom of white amber woods.

100 ml bottles are available now from London’s Liberty for £87 GBP (approximately $130 USD).
