From the ground up

Vans will soon be receiving a high fashion boost courtesy of the legendary Karl Lagerfeld. The famed designer is poised to unleash a new collaboration with the California brand, just in time for fashion month.

The project, arriving in early September, will feature both footwear and apparel styles, “fusing the two brands’ respective universes,” says WWD. Vans’ iconic checkerboard pattern is set to receive a camouflage update, “depicting Lagerfeld’s iconic profile, with boucle fabric and a quilted letter K among other leitmotifs.”

All-new products will be presented, alongside classic silhouettes such as the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool, done up with leather and quilted detailing atop white platform soles.

You can look forward to this much-anticipated Karl Lagerfeld x Vans capsule to arrive September 7.
