Editor's Notes: Sandy Liang, a fixture of New York City's Lower East Side, is reuniting with Vans to release another '90s-inspired sneaker collab.

The duo's third team-up is delightfully nostalgic, incorporating child-like doodles, fleece-y fabrics, and grandma-chic florals.

In footwear, the Sk8-Hi Platform 2.0 is embroidered with tiny blooms, while the Authentic 44 DX is printed with bold, painted-on daisies (the low-top even features a micro-bag attached to the laces, à la Prada's adidas Forum).

A brand new silhouette, the Sk8-Hi Tapered Modular, features a lace-trimmed collar and removable rubber outsole unit to give the shoe a chunky, utilitarian look.

Apparel is also included in the range — highlights include a very tennis-chic skort, a knit mini-dress, and work pants embroidered with "LES Lover" above the back pocket.

The collection follows Liang's recent Target collaboration, a testament to demand for the designer's most sought-after pieces.

Liang gained widespread recognition for her colorful fleece outerwear, an oft-imitated signature embraced by many a downtown tastemaker (see: habitants of Dimes Square, the unexpectedly buzzy corner of Canal and Division Street that's mere minutes away from Liang's flagship store).

Now, her girly-grunge dresses, whimsical jewelry, and understated handbags are a cult favorite among those in-the-know.

As the Lower East Side continues to morph into a veritable fashion hotspot (in September, the Business of Fashion dubbed Orchard Street the "Hottest Block in New York Retail"), Liang's empire is only bound to grow.
