Luxury brands are hitting the streets. After the huge success of SUPREME X Louis Vuitton, we’ve expected more high profile collaborations to follow suit… dust off our shoulder we were right. What we didn’t expect is that’ll it start this soon!
Just recently Karl Lagerfeld announced his collaboration with Vans. The thought of mixing the fashion eloquence of Chanel, Fendi and Lagerfeld’s eponymous fashion label with a skate brand got us tingling with shoephoric excitement. Karl Lagerfeld x Vans will release a 12 piece collab that includes hoodies, printed tees, accessories such as quilted backpacks, and six styles of footwear. Each piece will have a bold Karl Lagerfeld branding.
For the shoes, do expect iterations of Vans’s Sk8-Hi and Old Skool laceless platforms. There also be a Vans Classic Slip-on but instead of the iconic checkerboard print, it’ll have black and white silhouettes of Karl Lagerfeld’s side profile of his signature shades and ponytail.
Priced from USD 40 to USD 300, the collaboration will debut at Karl Lagerfeld stores, Karl.com, and on Vans.com this September 7.
