Headquartered in Orange County, CA, Vans OTW looks to a neighborhood one county over for inspiration in creating the Block Collection. The three-piece footwear pack features the Bedford, Prescott and Tesella, each paying homage to L.A.'s Fairfax and La Brea neighborhoods. The Bedford kicks off the celebration with a poly canvas/leather upper dressed in a Black/Navy colorway. It's joined by a low-profile Prescott in vintage off-white with a plaid lining, and the distinctive Tesella dressed with a handwoven leather upper, star-print liner and speckled midsole. The Vans OTW Block Collection will launch next month at select Vans OTW retailers including Conveyor, UNDFTD La Brea and Blends LA.
Additionally, VANS will throwing a block party in the heart of Los Angeles in honor of the Vans OTW launch. On March 1, Vans OTW will host a VIP event at Los Globos featuring art by SuS BoY and live music by Nosaj Thing, Gaslamp Killer and Salva, with one of the hottest LA-based emcees closing out the night as the special guest performer.
