converse fall 2014 collection launch

Headed back to the Converse headquarters yesterday for a preview of their Fall 2014 collection...Guess what met me there? Me! (ha-ha)

Do you remember this post where I was talking about being one of 300 recipients around the world to receive a "special Converse box" for a chance to  participate in their "Proudly Imperfect" What Would Sneakers Do global campaign?

Only a few were chosen and guess what? I made the cut! 

I am quite self-conscious and try to avoid focusing attention towards myself as much as possible but I'm willing to make an exemption for this. I am proud of this achievement especially because its Converse, a brand I've been in love with since forever. :P

I was told that they basically turn the chosen photos into a collage and regularly switch things up for a different look each time. During the Fall 2014 launch, my photo was at the bottom corner. :P

Kk, enough about me. The Converse Fall 2014 collection is just as exciting! :P

The new releases feature updated silhouettes and elevated detailing as well as a new weatherized Chuck Taylor perfect for Manila's bi-polar rainy weather...

Here's what you should look out for:

Collaborations with Black Sabbath and contemporary menswear designer John Varvatos for the All-Star Chuck Taylor line, a Tri-Zip collection which utilizes premium suede, sparkle washed canvas, zippers and leather zipper pulls for a whole new take on our beloved Chucks:

And here's the weatherized Rubber Chuck Taylor's I was talking about earlier. It's the same pair they sent me for the campaign and it is a genius and more wearable version of the rain boot. Not only do they weigh significantly less, they are also a lot easier to pull off and look stylish in. 

Plus points, they also come in Kids Sizes! :)

Retail price is P3750

Not to be left behind are the new designs from the Cons and Jack Purcell line:

The new CONS are awesome and to me, they are like the epitome of the perfect urban boot. Guys would look great in these with their pants tucked in. Can also imagine them on the feet of Kanye West and those who sport similar personal style.

The preppier set will love the new Purcell's which come in distressed versions and leather. A great match with shorts or khaki's for days both on and off the yacht :P Collared sport shirt optional.
