Vans teams with acclaimed Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami for an eclectic collection under Vans’ premium label, Vault by Vans. Celebrated for his vibrant paintings and intricate sculptures and designs, Murakami translates his vision into a bold capsule collection consisting of a series of graphic tees, skate decks and Classic Slip-Ons – the artist’s favorite Vans silhouette. The collection highlights two of Murakami’s recurring motifs – the smiling flower and skull patterns – and draws inspiration from traditional Japanese art, anime and pop culture.

The Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami collection is set for a global release on June 27, but while you wait, you can check out the animated video below to get a closer look at the project.
