Streetwear meets high fashion as two brands collide

Karl Lagerfeld and Vans have announced their collaborative collection of footwear and apparel. The 12-piece collection includes hooded sweatshirts, graphic T-shirts and an all-new checkerboard pattern.

The footwear component of the co-branded pack includes six new tweaks on classic Vans silhouettes, including laceless, platform versions of the Sk8 Hi and Old Skool, in addition to bouclé versions, as well as checkerboard Slip Ons featuring Lagerfeld’s recognisable silhouette.

The apparel keeps things relatively simple, adhering to a black-and-white aesthetic, used across a range of graphic T-shirts, hoodies and a bomber jacket. A backpack with a quilted leather pattern and a checkerboard cap round out the accessory offerings.

The Karl Lagerfeld x Vans capsule collection will drop worldwide on September 7th. Pieces range between $40 and $300 and will be available online at both Karl Lagerfeld and Vans stores.
