Vans + Eley Kishimoto Collaboration
A head-to-toe collection of vibrant, wearable prints that are easy on the wallet
Vans and London-based design house Eley Kishimoto—both who are serial collaborators in their own right—have joined forces for a collection dubbed "Living Art." Turning art into fashion, the two have created a line that puts Eley Kishimoto's vibrant, bold graphics onto backpacks, pants, high-tops, parkas and more. There are also three exclusive prints especially made for Vans.
These super-bold (but entirely wearable) graphic prints combine floral motifs, geometric shapes and patterns that are almost worthy of a Magic Eye—blending the masculine and feminine and otherworldly all at once. The attire itself balances the daring graphics, with basic button-downs and sneakers all getting the treatment. Perhaps most notable is the Eley Kishimoto take on Vans' classic checkerboard slip-on—still black-and-white, the sneakers are covered in the British label's signature, zig-zagging flash print.
This collection is now available online, with prices starting at $15.
