Design collaborations are nothing new in the Fashion Industry, from Marni for H&M, Mary Katrantzou for Longchamp and now Kenzo for Vans.
“Vans is one of the iconic American brands and we liked the idea of infusing this bit of American style into the house of Kenzo,” says Kenzo Creative Directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim.
The shoes reflect the best of both brands, featuring Kenzo’s quirky fishnet prints in a colour palette featuring mainly bold red, blue, green and white in several different designs, inspired by their own Spring Summer 2012 collection and Van’s iconic skate shoe, creating an effortlessly cool shoe, ideal for summer and bringing together the best parts of French and American Ready-to-Wear.
The collection will be available from mid May, June and July and are on sale from Kenzo stores, Kenzo.com and at select retail partners including Opening Ceremony, Colette, Harvey Nichols, Bosco Milan, Lane Crawford and IT. All shoes are on sale at €90 for men and women. Source Fiasco
