Cool California brand Vans has joined creative forces with French designer Karl Lagerfeld to bring a touch of Parisian chic to its timeless classics. The collection will see 12 styles across apparel and accessories, with the brand’s signature black-and-white check at the core of the collection. Launching on 7 September, the collection will feature six interpretations of Vans’ classic footwear styles, including the debut of the Sk8-Hi Laceless Platform and the Old Skool Laceless platform. As a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld’s fashion aesthetic, elements such as bouclé fabric and K-quilted stitching have been utilised along with Lagerfeld’s cameo silhouette motif.
The collection also includes T-shirts and sweatshirts along with premium backpack, ideal for a sophisticated twist on the skater aesthetic.
The Vans x Karl Lagerfeld collection will be available worldwide from 7 September, with prices ranging from €50 to €300.
