With a shared passion for craftsmanship and genuine storytelling, Anaheim-based brand Vans Vault and British designer Nigel Cabourn have joined forces to create a collection with a unique style.
With over 50 years of experience in the fashion industry, alongside contemporaries such as Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Margaret Howell, Nigel Cabourn stands for high quality menswear and unisex clothing. His works are not influenced by fashion trends, but inspired by stories of real people and influences from the vintage, outdoor and workwear world.
Combining the characteristics of surf / beach culture and Californian art, Nigel, along with his collaborator, Emilie Casiez, added an exciting interpretation to some classic model silhouettes and created a series of collectible clothing inspired by to the handcrafted tapestries and the designer's artistic works. A set of patchworks in canvas, camouflage with surprising mix of colors, a beige and blue option and a green one that refer to the materials used in the army, give the iconic sneakers a unique touch and an impeccable style.
As for clothing, among the selection of reinterpreted garments we find a soft fleece pullover, a cap with details designed by Nigel, a multicolor Chore Coat, as well as sweatshirts, T-shirts, and socks embellished with embroidered and printed details that take up the Californian theme of the collection.
