Converse Get A Gorillaz Makeover Liam’s done it with Pretty Green; Katy Perry, Britney Spears et al have done it with perfume; and now Gorillaz are collaborating with Converse. Well…if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

Award-winning designer and Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett has been busy designing four new looks for Converse Chuck Taylor. The Gorillaz Collection, due to launch later this month, will rework the classic baseball shoe into a modern cult classic in styles that ooze all things Gorillaz. Among the collection, will be a contemporary camouflage print which Gorillaz fans will recognise as being from their self-titled debut album. Each of the Gorillaz Converse Chuck Taylors will feature a Gorillaz heel tab, just to add that extra bit of authenticity.

To give the launch even more of a showbiz feel, Gorillaz have been putting together a special musical offering with Converse too – in their Three Artists…One Song collaboration. Listen to Murdoc spilling more of the beans here.

The Limited Edition Chuck Taylor Gorillaz Collection will be available online from 23rd February.
