I've been a long time fan of Marimekko fabrics. For all of you who love the brand's Scandinavian style, Converse has collaborated again with Marimekko for it's fifth collection this July, featuring some of their classic colorful patterns from the 1960's. Pick the classic hightop style such as the Chuck Taylor Marimekko (top, $90 at Converse) that come with a contrasting interior print you can flip over to reveal. I also love the classic Jack Purcell sneaker reinterpreted in a new silhouette inspired by Jack's wife Helen. These Jack Purcell Helen Marimekko sneaks (on sale for $59.99 at Converse) are perfect for sunny days.
