Best Bet: Marimekko for Converse

By

Chucks and Jack Purcells get the Marimekko treatment in five spring-ready prints for Converse’s latest sneakers collaboration, hitting shelves this week ($90 at Marimekko, 200 Fifth Ave., nr. 24th St.; 212-843-9121). Plus, Melissa brings plastic shoes (and art) to Soho, a breakdown of energy-efficient lightbulbs, and more in this week's issue. [NYM]
