Vans just partnered with one of the most revered artists of today – Vincent Van Gogh! The collaboration is exciting news for fans of both as they can soon lay hands on the fresh ensemble. The exciting collection includes classic slip-ons, authentic and old-school silhouettes, bombers, hoodies and teas, each inspired by the iconic Van Gogh work.
For the collaboration, Vans worked with the Van Gogh museum team and selected the Skull, Almond Blossom, Sunflowers, and the artists’ self-portraits as the main muses. Shoes from the collection come with custom insoles that feature Van Gogh’s signature strokes and the logo for both brands. The pieces also come with a special hangtag stating historical facts behind the making of the underlying Van Gogh art. Additionally, the footwear selection boasts of an Old School pair inspired by the artist’s Old Vineyard with Peasant Woman piece, and a Classic Slip-on showcasing excerpts from Vincent’s handwritten letters to his brother, Theo.
Commenting on the collaboration, Adriaan Dönszelmann, Managing Director of the Van Gogh Museum said, “We are delighted with the Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection, as it ties in with our mission to make the life and work of Vincent van Gogh accessible to as many people as possible in order to enrich and inspire them”. The Van Gogh x Vans collection will be available onward August 3 online and in select stores worldwide.
