Vans and The North Face, outdoor apparel, equipment and footwear leader, join forces for a new Holiday 2017 collection.

Championing values of innovation and adventure, Vans partners with The North Face this season to create an exclusive collection of apparel, accessories and footwear that fuse each brand’s quality of design to create functional cold weather offerings. Available in a bold scheme of black, white, red and yellow colorways, the partnership highlights the Vans Old Skool and Sk8-Hi silhouettes, along with apparel and accessories treated with a signature technology to take you from urban terrain to rural landscapes, while keeping you warm and dry along the way.

With help from The North Face trusted Thermoball™ technology, Vans updated the Torrey Jacket with the synthetic PrimaLoft® fill to guarantee lightweight warmth in the coolest of conditions. The Vans x TNF Torrey MTE quilted jacket is featured in three colorways – red, black and yellow, and signed off with a Vans x TNF embroidered patch on the front. In accessories, Vans reimagines the iconic The North Face Base Camp Duffle, modified for the first time ever to include a skateboard strap. The bag dons the iconic The North Face logo with embroidered patch detailing.

Finally, Vans unveils four iterations of the Sk8-Hi MTE and Old Skool MTE, each featuring The North Face logo on the back heel counter, The North Face custom eyelet and a checkerboard lugged outsole. The full collection matches back to the primary red and yellow colorways, in addition to classic black and white for a striking contrast.

Vans and The North Face were founded in California in 1966 with a shared mission to inspire a lifestyle of exploration and creative expression. The Vans x The North Face collaboration launches globally on November 3, 2017.

Vault x Bodega – “Sub Rosa” Old Skool LX & Mid Skool LX (11.4.17) @bdgastore

Words via Bodega:

“There’s a Vans for every occasion, and every customer, so why should that exclude the expression of desire? We get it though; having a bunch of uptight types bring the hammer of “public decency” down on you can really kill the mood. That’s where the Sub Rosa pack comes in.

Latin for “under the rose”, sub rosa is an age-old phrase denoting discretion and secrecy, the Sub Rosa pack is all about erotic entertainment amongst enthusiastically consenting adults in a high class, safe and comfortable atmosphere.

Featuring a romantic rose motif, incorporated into the classic skate designs of the Old Skool and Mid Skool , the Sub Rosa design is a discreet, tasteful way to let your partner know that you are adventurous and up for anything, while also being sensitive and aware of their needs.

Now that you’ve got the right footwear, take those first steps into the garden of desire. There’s no need to be shy about it. We won’t tell anyone. Everything stays right here underneath the roses.

The Bodega x Vans Vault ‘Sub Rosa’ pack releases Saturday, November 4th at Bodega, bdgastore.com, and ComplexCON. Each pair comes packaged in a custom branded box, with a complimentary calendar and rose – retail is set at $90 for the Old Skool and $100 for the Mid Skool.”

http _hypebeast.com_image_2017_09_civilist-vans-coffee-cigarettes-pack-1

Berlin’s Civilist has joined forces with Vans on a limited edition footwear pack titled “Coffee & Cigarettes.” The collaborative offering consists of two Authentic Pro variants alongside one Style 47 DX iteration that was inspired by the Slip-On Velcro model. Conclusively, graphic motifs of coffee beans and cigarette butts are aptly embellished on the insoles of each shoe.

Civilist has this to say about their recent collab:

“Our daily routine when opening up store consists of the usual…clean up mess the kids left the day before, put money in the draw, switch the lights on, and then head over to our coffee spot to grab a freshly brewed COFFEE accompanied by a CIGARETTE.”

Note:  The Style 47 DX was an exclusive release only for Civilist, but the rest of the pack will be available at a few other Vans stockists.

Vans x Peanuts – Collection Two (10.6.17)

HO17_Classics_Peanuts_ElevatedAuthentic_Comics

Words via Vans:

“Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, continues its long-standing relationship with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang in its latest collection of footwear, apparel and accessories this October. Using original illustrations by Charles M. Schulz, the collection pays homage to the iconic characters and artwork from the original Peanuts holiday television specials.

Charles M. Schulz illustrations take new shape across the Sk8-Hi Reissue and Old Skool styles using the entire silhouette as a canvas. Original designs of Charlie Brown and Snoopy take over the monochromatic silhouettes and are outfitted with leather Sidestripes. Kicking it back to the comic strip days is an Authentic that has been decorated with holiday themed comic strip scenes. Peanuts fans can get their dancing shoes on in an Authentic or Old Skool model that depicts the whole Peanuts Gang during the memorable dance party scene from the animated television special, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Half Cab, Vans designers have included Snoopy and his family members across the canvas panels of the Half Cab. Peek closely and you may see Snoopy’s brother, Spike, on the Half Cab’s tongue label with a Checkerboard printed hat and Schulz signature embossed into the suede toe box. Vans’ very own Checkerboard Slip-On has been reimagined this season to include the many playful expressions of Snoopy that can be found within print. The Sk8-Hi Reissue gets a premium upgrade with leather materialization and has been embossed on the quarter-panels to include the subtle presence of Snoopy and a hidden Woodstock can be seen on the tongue label. A very special Classic Slip-On was created to celebrate the everlasting friendship between Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock and features plush patches on the vamp of each Slip-On and is finished with ‘Best Friends’ embossed into the front toe bumper of each shoe.

Signature Vans x Peanuts apparel and accessories will be available in a range of prints that match the footwear assortment, including the monochromatic Charlie Brown and Snoopy illustrations and Snoopy’s family for men. Women will have a playfully pink collection of the Peanuts dance party apparel and a tonal collection dedicated to Snoopy. Even the littlest Vans and Peanuts fans will receive their very own assortment of footwear that will be available in kids and toddler sizing including the comic strip and dance party Authentic. Just in time for Halloween, the Sk8-Hi Zip includes glow-in-the-dark Snoopy and Woodstock dressed up as mummies while the Old Skool V features easy hook-and-loop straps and uses the Snoopy Checkerboard print. Tiny tykes get their very own Classic Slip-On that features Snoopy with a plush tail detail at the heel.”

The latest Vans x Peanuts collection of footwear, apparel and accessories will be available to shop in Vans retail stores and vans.com/Peanuts on October 6th!

Words via Vans:
“Vans Pro Skate presents a special, limited-release glow-in-the-dark Half Cab Pro inspired by Arizona-based skateboarding collective, Pyramid Country.

The Half Cab Pro is equipped with Vans’ proven UltraCush HD sockliners for superior cushioning and boardfeel, Duracap reinforced uppers for enhanced durability, and Vans’ original waffle sole for the most reliable grip in the industry.

Supreme x Andres Serrano – “Blood and Semen” Sk8-Hi, Chukka, and Old Skool (F/W 2017)

NdBJKJWaEUY

Words via Supreme:

“Andres Serrano is an artist and photographer born in 1950 in New York City. Raised as a strict Roman Catholic, much of Serrano’s work explores and challenges religion through the artist’s interpretation of traditional religious iconography with the incorporation of human bodily fluids such as blood, urine, semen and breast milk. Two of his most notable works are Piss Christ and the Blood and Semen series.

While a majority of Serrano’s body of work has been embroiled in controversy, none more than Piss Christ; a photograph of a plastic crucifix submerged in a tank of the artist’s urine. The reactions to the piece ranged from denouncement by US Senators to vandalizing of prints by Christian protestors to death threats.”

This fall, Supreme has worked on a collection featuring Andres Serrano’s pieces, Piss Christ, Madonna & Child II and Blood and Semen II. The collection consists of two Hooded Sweatshirts, Sweatpants and two graphic T-Shirts. In addition Supreme has worked with Vans® on a Sk8-Hi, Chukka and Old Skool featuring Blood and Semen II.
