June 16, 2020
Kenzo reprises its partnership with the iconic skate brand Vans with a new footwear collaboration. Outfitted in pieces from the Kenzo x Vans capsule against the Californian backdrop, the collection provides an intimate insight into the everyday lives of seven real skaters and friends – Tre’Veon Ladson, Tyron Watts, Vincent Nava, Omoye Brown, Surish Singh, David Branom and Rebecca L’Amore.
Vivid, all-over floral prints taken from the Kenzo archives wrap the legendary Vans Sk8-Hi high-top sneaker, and the Old-Skool low-top sneaker. Expanding on the skate inspiration is a capsule of ready-to-wear pieces and accessories designed by Felipe Oliveira Baptista – his first capsule collection for the Maison.
To complement the capsule, Kenzo is releasing an exclusive lifestyle item created in collaboration with The Skateroom: a limited edition Kenzo skateboard. Only 150 pieces will be made available and 100% of profits from the Kenzo skateboard art edition will be donated to a social skate project to empower at-risk youth in Jamaica.
