Three Pieces To Fancy From Converse By John Varvatos

For a line stamped with the name of a sneaker brand, I found more than I bargained for.

Even still, the pricing is fairly outrageous (the band-style leather jacket below tips the scales at nearly $800). While the pseudo goth images on their tanks and t-shirts are attractive layering choices; the $90 ballpark price for something you’re likely going to cover up half of isn’t ideal.

Other than the crochet dress, the rest of the pack available online seems to be glorified skate wear; nothing really worth looking at much less wearing.

I’m willing to wager their Fall line will be an improvement over their Summer choices design-wise, but that remains to be seen.  One can only hope John strays from what I would largely classify as Avril Lavigne skate shop (which nothing close to pleasant).
