Doo.Ri Diffuses; Converse Dances With The Dead


Doo.Ri spreads the love. The designer will launch a lower-priced line next year, with plenty of draping and jersey and price tags in the under-$500 range. Recession dressing just got fun.

The latest bizarre fashion collaboration: Converse and the Grateful Dead. That’s right, dancing bears on your kicks.

European football mogul and oligarch Roman Abramovich and his totally gorgeous girlfriend Dasha Zhukova like to watch soccer matches at Nevada Smiths, with regular folk. See, even Russian gajillionaires go to dive bars.

Not content to just look at clothes on the runway, front-row staple Róisín Murphy wants take part in the action. The singer (who wore Gareth Pugh before Beyoncé, by the way) will model couture digs by newcomer Alexandre Vauthier, previously at Thierry Mugler and Jean Paul Gaultier.

    I personally think that more designers will do that in the next future. Miu Miu and that kind of brands are still to expensive for the average girl/younger woman. So they have to have to design a mix between Zara, the Gap probably H&M and their own cheaper collections. Maybe it’s a Gods blessing this recession time, because if the’re designers which will design cheaper collections the clients will come back when it’s over and they can spend more money on the real pieces of a designer. About the Greatful Dead wasn’t that a band in the 60s? I hardly know them but they never impressed me, so what is Converse trying to do with this collaboration?
