Vans x Karl Lagerfeld
Vans are certainly not too shy to collaborate with big names. Recent offerings have seen Vans x Supreme, alongside fun and lovable collections such as Vans x Toy Story. Now, Couture King Karl Lagerfeld and the streetwear skating phenomenon, have formed an unlikely partnership to create a line of footwear and apparel. We take a look, and tell you everything need to know...
The footwear side of the creative pairing, includes the classic Old Skool, slip on and Sk8 Hi models, with minor tweaks to add Karl’s designer touch. Platforms and laceless versions of the trainers are the highlight, along with Karl’s iconic silhouette replacing the once checkerboard slip ons. The apparel side of the collaboration is kept simple, with every piece maintaining a black and white aesthetic. Graphic tees, hoodies and a bomber jacket take the lead, whilst accessories, such as a leather backpack and cap with the famous checkerboard print appears (because how could they leave that out?)
Overall, the collection is the perfect combination of street style and high end fashion, keeping things cool yet affordable.
