The California Collection from VANS is influenced by the nostalgic flavors deriving from the early days of VANS and the environment that surrounded the company. From surfing and skateboarding, the roots of this brand are reflected in this newly established line. The range is somewhat bohemian, allowing freethinking concepts to inform its designs from vintage memories. For those who have never lived in the “50s, “60s, and “70s, VANS created this visual, The California Collection, to represent the individuals that lived and shaped the bygone era.
