No raucous drunken crowd. Instead, the VANS DQM General opened last Thursday evening in the midst of gathered friends and family. A great way to capped off the end of New York Fashion Week, the festivities also marked the very first VANS retail location on the isle of Manhattan. Among the collections, including VANS Classics, California, Surf, Skate, OTW, and the hard to find Vault line, the collaborative retail project also offers a new cut & sew apparel collection from DQM. Live in store performances from Ray Barbee and the Mattson 2 helped in perfecting the evening while a DQM x VANS cap & sneakers cake ended it.
