Continuing Vans’ expansive multifaceted brick-and-mortar project, this past weekend saw the opening of the first ever House of Vans in Paris’ Rive Gauche district. Kicking things off with a two-day pop-up event, throughout the weekend visitors were treated to a range of workshops, demos and performances.

As to be expected from the home of all things “Off the Wall”, Vans hit the ground running for their Parisian opening. With over 3,500 people in attendance, the weekend showcased everything from art exhibitions to live screenprinting and tattooing at the event, as well as demos from the Vans skate team including 24-year old Lizzie Armanto, all presented with Vans’ signature irreverent touch.

Rounding things off, the whole weekend was soundtracked by live performances and DJ sets from a number of big names on the Paris scene, including Endrixx, Romeo Elvis, Kirou Kirou and Rakoto 3000, while a special appearance on Saturday night from South London rap legend Giggs brought the international factor to the newest House of Vans chapter. Check out the video above for the full recap, and head to the House of Vans site to find out more about what they have planned for the future.
