One of the most enduring collaborations in contemporary fashion, the Comme des Garçons PLAY x Converse 1970 marries an iconic emblem with the world's most storied sneaker. The endearing eyes of Comme des Garçons PLAY's iconic heart emblem lend it a distinctive quality, addressing the looker like a renaissance painting. In fact, the label's merging of high-brow design qualities with the low-brow connotations of cartoon caricature, to which the Heart Emblem makes clear reference, is a crucial part of its appeal.

In the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star 1970, New York graphic artist Filip Pagowski and Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo find the perfect companion for the Heart Emblem. The Chuck Taylor All-Star matches the logo's iconicity while providing the physical space and simplicity of design for the Heart Emblem's character to take the limelight. Despite the empty space opened up by the Hi-top iteration of the shoe, the PLAY Heart Emblem continues to play coy, appearing partially obscured, as if it wasn't entirely recognizable from the eyes alone.
