Vans and Japanese artist Yusuke Hanai have teamed up for the first time to introduce a collaborative capsule for Spring 2016. Inspired by modern mid-century details and illustrations paying homage to surf culture, Yusuke adds a youthful twist to Vans Surf footwear silhouettes and apparel pieces. The collection’s leading motif is a collage of surf-inspired illustrations including seagulls, fish, flowers, cacti and a sad surfer. The collection evokes a warm outdoor beach feel with an array of colors that include Antique White, Sterling Blue and Eggplant Burgundy.
The Yusuke print can be found across the Vans Rata Vulc SF, the Authentic SF, the Slip-On SF and the Hanelei sandal. Yusuke’s designs are also featured across a diverse selection of Vans apparel including the Yusuke Hanai Boardshort, Tank and Reversible Bucket Hat.
The Yusuke Hanai x Vans Surf collection is now available at vans.com.
Vans also just released a new collection of wool Slip-Ons alongside Opening Ceremony.
