HO17_Classics_NJOT_Embossed-StudsSidewall_Collection

Vans introduces a six-piece capsule that reimagines the Authentic and Old Skool models in updates perfect for holiday styling. Focusing the design elements on the sidewall, Vans designers took on traditional vulcanization to include embossed ridges and studs for an edgy new take on heritage icons.

Vans first shoe, the Authentic, takes on new heights as the Authentic Platform 2.0. The raised sidewall in tonal black features ridging details reminscent of a traditional creeper silhouette and is finished with d-ring lacing. The Authentic Platform 2.0 is available in two all-over suede executions including a black to the floor and red/black colorway. The final colorway features a blend of black suede and leopard printed canvas. The companion to the offering comes from the Old Skool, which delivers an ode to punk styling with tonal embossed studs on the sidewall. The Old Skool is available in three executions including blanc de blanc, chili pepper and all black made up in patent leather with a tonal matte leather Sidestripe.

The Embossed Sidewall Pack retails for $65 – $75 USD and will be available to shop in Vans retail stores and online at Vans.com/Classics now.  Click on pic above!

Vans – “Souvenir Jacket” Collection (Fall 2017)

HO17_Classics_NJOT_VN0A38F8QU3_ClassicSlip-OnDX_CaliforniaSouvenir_Black-BlancDeBlanc_Macro

Words via Vans:

“Vans kicks off the upcoming holiday season with a head-to-toe offering that draws inspiration from the souvenir bomber jacket. The eight-piece California Souvenir assortment is dressed in rich materials including satin, decorative lurex piping, and embroidered detailing across a collection of Classics and apparel staples. The capsule will be available worldwide beginning this October.

The hero piece of the capsule comes from Vans’ interpretation of the souvenir jacket, which sets the stage for the entire offering. Vans designers pay homage to the customary elements of a traditional souvenir jacket including two-toned color-blocking, striped rib detailing, quilted lining and embroidered back script and tiger. Those original elements are blended alongside nods to Vans’ home state of California with embroidered palm trees and poppy flowers.

Proving Vans Classics are not just one thing, Vans designers have brought the flight satin and embroidery elements to three of the brand’s most iconic silhouettes. The Classic Slip-On features the all over satin material and embroidery across the vamp of shoe. The tiger in the poppies are mirrored across a rose-pink execution, while the black Classic Slip-On highlights the tiger in the palms and the poppy on each side. The Old Skool and Sk8-Hi Reissue take a subtle approach and use lush satin paneling throughout and feature decorative lurex cording across the heel. Each style is delivered in classic black with a metallic greige available in the Old Skool.  Available in Unisex sizing (up to a mens 10).”

The California Souvenir Pack will be available to shop online at Vans.com/Classics or in Vans retail locations beginning this October!

Vans and Urban Outfitters found the perfect ambassador in Sasha Lane. The outspoken “American Honey” actress has broken down barriers and defied expectations as a breakthrough female actress, from her career path to her style to her radical individualism. “There’s something really strong in putting your own style together. It’s who you are and that’s individual and unique,” said Lane when interviewed on set earlier this month. “I try to go about everything in a very genuine and raw way and I think people are really digging that and gravitating towards that and finding some type of empowerment and that’s really neat and is what makes a lot of it worth it.”

The Vans + Urban Outfitters capsule collection is available now in select Urban Outfitters stores globally and on urbanoutfitters.com.

The Sk8-Hi Zip is reimagined to include colorful, out of this world unicorns while the Old Skool is transformed with Dallas’ fun-loving doodles. The skating unicorn makes his way onto the Authentic, which is upgraded to include a pull-tab and elastic laces on the toddler style. Rounding out the kids and toddlers selection is an exclusive style that blends a group of imaginative characters across the Classic Slip-On.

The Vans x Dallas Clayton footwear collection is dedicated to the dreamers of the world and each pair comes with a sticker with Dallas’ positively thought provoking saying “Stand Here and Think About Someone You Love”.
