Converse launched a new trainer this week and they definitely let us know about it. Collaborating with Size, an event was held in the Converse London office to celebrate the launch of the Converse One Star Hairy Suede, which turned out to be the perfect post-work hang on Thursday evening. Guests received a pair of the newbies as a pre-party gift and we didn’t go short at the party with a free bar (courtesy of Smirnoff) and free food (mac and cheese… nom)!
Photographers, bloggers, stylists, music artists and pretty much every type of creative flocked to the event with a one-in-one-out policy having to be enforced by 8.30pm. The venue allowed for that ideal balance of party vs socialising and they even surprised us with a live performance from Last Night in Paris.
