The pack includes four color options – purple, teal, blue, or black – each presented in a well faded state that is beach-ready right out of the box. Faded, washed out materials are popping up as part of a broad trend for Spring 2011; this Vans California pack brings to mind the most recent http://freshnessmag.com/2011/02/07/levis-chambray-by-opening-ceremony-2/”>Levi’s x Opening Ceremony capsule, of washed chambray garments (not to mention the http://freshnessmag.com/2010/04/29/dr-romanelli-x-levis-california-beach-pack-release-information/”>washed out denim shoe created by Dr. Romanelli in Summer 2010 – a design that was clearly ahead of it’s time).
