Following a short teaser a couple of weeks back, we are now able to get ouf first detailed look at the Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami Limited Edition Collection. Comprised of Tees, footwear for adults and kids, and skate decks, the collaborative release takes full advantage of the Japanese artist's colorful pop art illustrations and color palettes to bring forth an assortment of warm weather gear. Given his personal love for the Classic Slip-on, the footwear range focuses only on this silo, offering it in six adult colorways alongside a trio of toddler-sized pairs. The first half of the footwear options focus on multi-colored flower prints while the second highlights allover skulls in blue, yellow, and gold color-ups. Each pair also sees Murakami’s own dog, Pom, makes a cameo on the footbed of each Slip-On as she sits atop the Vans skateboard logo.
The Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami Limited Edition Collection is rounded out with three graphic styles of shirts and skate decks. The tees highlight the smiling flower in a multicolored collage, the skull stamp in an allover silver outline and Murakami himself on a blue background. The skateboard decks feature the same patterns on their undersides while Pom makes an additional cameo on the wood-finished topside of each deck.
The Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami Limited Edition Collection with launch globally on June 27 at Vans.com.
