Vans-OTW-x-Hyperstealth-Camo-Pack-Fall-2013

When it comes to collaborations, Vans have established a long portfolio of exciting and unique hook-ups, successfully incorporating the latest and coolest brands on the street. Their classic sneaker profiles provide a clear canvas for the brand to almost ‘ID’ their own products. The latest collaboration comes from a more low-key yet highly credible brand, Hyperstealth. Originally founded in 1999, the Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp. has ascended itself to a globally leading brand in military and camouflage clothing. Predominately using its impressive 10,000 plus assortment of patterns for worldwide law and enforcement agencies, Vans welcomes a surprising yet appropriate collaboration this July.

The ensemble features a variety of sneaker, apparel and accessories, featuring Hyperstealth’s characteristic camouflage imprint. Standout pieces include the Vans OTW Ludlow sneakers, a classic mid-cut skateboard shoe available in a trendy blue camo. The Vans Lynwood also emerges as another collaboration favourite, a high-top option embodying the classic Black/Brown camo along its mid section atop a crisp white rubber sole.

The normally runway-shy Nasir Mazhar’s appearance at London Collections: Men ended an eventful three days with an almighty bang. Reminiscent of a futuristic British militia, his urban streetwear featured low slung trousers, backpacks, pocket-suspenders and holsters. Hip hop meets haute couture, his line remained tongue-in-cheek (with one model sporting an up-turned bucket on his head), whilst credible and authentic.

His signature tracksuits remained, spruced up with reflective surfaces and his usual use of over-logoing. Staple colours were red, white, black and pink, with the use of darker tones also. Rucksacks, caps, tracksuits and gas masks- Imagine the uniform of a dystopian youth army in 3013 and this is what you’d get.
