Vans has collaborated with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam on a unique capsule collection. Some of Vincent van Gogh’s most iconic works are featured on classic Vans styles: paintings belonging to three of the Dutch post-impressionist painter’s most famous series – sunflowers, almond blossoms and skulls - are reproduced on clothing, accessories and footwear. Prices range from €45 to €100, with highlights including a vibrant almond-blossom bomber jacket, a T-shirt printed with van Gogh’s self-portrait and slip-ons illustrated with passages from van Gogh’s letters to his brother. An excellent example of the concept of wearable art, the collection is also in aid of a good cause: proceeds will be used to help preserve the Dutch artist’s vast body of work, thus ensuring future generations can enjoy his legacy for years to come.
As van Gogh is one of the Netherlands’ most celebrated artists, any of the pieces from this exceptional collaboration would make a unique souvenir of your Amsterdam trip.
