Converse get creative

After a Sunday of food poisoning woe, and a Monday morning of wind and grey skies, I can’t say I was feeling too uplifted when I parked my bum at my desk this morning.

Picking out some groovy garms for LFW from eBay’s (funky new-look) Fashion Outlet helped a bit, but my spirits were brightened even further when I received a bunch of vibrant pics from Converse.

I have deep love for Converse hi-tops – my trusty green pair were out for the walk on Sunday. They add a dash of fash to casual wear, and seeing as I am crap at dressing down properly I adore a bit of colour pop magic on my feet.

So, being a fan, I’m pretty stoked about these stunning pics of Converse bags that have been released as part of a campaign to coincide with the students heading back to uni and college. Converse asked a group of young UK stylists, musicians and other creatives to think back to the days of drawing on their school bag to express their own personal style, and asked ’em to customise a Converse duffel bag. 

I love the results…

Alexis has christened her fur-covered accessory Connie – awwwww

This glorious wooden design was conjured up by stylist and accessories designer, Hope Von Joel

Hope is one half of talented design duo eyeoftheworlddesigns (with Liam Motyer) – and she’s uber-model Jean Shrimpton’s niece! Pretty cool fashion cred, huh?
