ARIES X VAULT BY VANS & WHAT WENT DOWN AT THE EXCLUSIVE LAUCH PARTY


WORDS JOSEPH PARKER - IMAGES COURTESY OF VAULT BY VANS/CANOE







This fall, Vault by Vans collaborates with well-known cult label Aries to produce a brand new capsule collection inspired by dead-stock and unorthodox fashion. The brand's soon to be released collab celebrates subculture, female streetwear and expresses modern creativity with heavy doses of psychedelic patterns, colour clashing and graphic storytelling in it's six-shoe footwear collection, curated apparel and accessories.





“When working at Slam City Skates we had a vintage 'customize your own Vans' poster which seemed to allow you to mix and match prints for every part of the shoe. We wanted the collaboration to follow this accidental recipe; same colours don’t quite match like they have been made of found pieces of material; graphics and logos are incoherent; random apocalyptic stories appear on the soles; while the phrase 'go your own way' and 'Art Trip' reinforce the message of individuality and rule breaking that is shared by both brands,” - Sofia Prantera.





The collection "GO YOUR OWN WAY", drops on September 11th and will be available to buy from Vault by Vans stores.
