Thursday Tip: Maison Martin Margiela X Converse


Thursday Tip is one day late, but better than never, right? I’ve been super busy, running around together with photographer Charlotte Schmidt Olsen, taking photos of my favorite spots in my new neighbourhood for two days. It will all be published here on the blog during the coming weeks, and I am hoping you will like these places as much as I do!

In one of the places we visited, a fashion store called Nitty Gritty, I found these hand painted sneakers, a collaboration between Maison Martin Margiela and Converse. Since I love Margiela, and Converse (I wear chucks almost every day of the year), I have been following the launch of these very closely, but hadn’t seen them irl until today. The idea of the paint is that it will eventually wear off, creating a unique patina on the shoe. Need I tell you that these are on my wish list? And yes, I am very aware that I could just take a brush and paint some of my old chucks, but it’s the idea that I love, and that, to me, is worth paying for.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between.
