Converse ♥ Marimekko Spring 2012 Collection Announced

Converse and Marimekko announced their Spring 2012 collection, with the Chuck Taylor All Star, Chuck Taylor All Star PJ and Jack Purcell Helen shoes receiving a springlike boost of five signature prints from two Marimekko designers, Maija Isola and Annika Rimala.

Some of these prints include:

Jack Purcell Helen Marimekko, Muija print, Maija Isola
The Muija (woman) print from 1968 is a more subtle pattern.

Jack Purcell Helen Marimekko, Unikko print, Maija Isola
The Unikko (poppy) print was created in 1964 out of protest when Marimekko announced that the company could never print a floral pattern.

Chuck Taylor All Star Marimekko, Appelsiini print, Maija Isola
The Appelsiini (orange) print, created in 1950, was inspired by the bargain oranges the designer ate during her stay in Spain.
