After much buildup, the Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami capsule collection will finally arrive at select retailers around the globe this weekend. The enigmatic artist, known for his outlandish, character-based artworks which often incorporate traditional Japanese motifs, has subsequently allowed for his unique ocular aesthetic to be displayed across Vans’ flagship silhouette: the Classic Slip-On, a personal favorite of his. The footwear collection will entail six adult colorways and three toddler-sized styles – each pair enveloped in a signature vibrant Murakami print. Additionally, the capsule will include a matching trio of skate decks and T-shirts bearing one of three graphics: a Murakami self-portrait, the smiling flower, or the designer’s trademark skull pattern. Visit the Vans website for a complete list of stockists.
