Vans and Karl Lagerfeld have collaborated on a new collection and revealed their lookbook, product images and drop date. The collection features 12 iconic Vans styles reimagined with a Lagerfeld twist including t-shirts, a raglan sleeve bomber jacket, a premium leather backpack, a cap and 6 classic Vans sneakers. The sneakers include the debut of the SK8-Hi Laceless Platform and the Old Skool Laceless platform, a solid black leather Classic Slip-On, leather Old Skool and Sk8-Hi reissues as well as the Checkerboard Classic Slip-On.
“This exciting collaboration is a fusion of Vans’ classic style and KARL LAGERFELD’s iconic design” said Angie Dita, Vans Senior Footwear Designer. “Working in close partnership, our teams designed this collection to reflect the unique histories of our respective brands. As a tribute to KARL LAGERFELD’s fashion DNA, we highlighted elements like boucle fabric and K-quilted stitching, and we reinterpreted Vans’ signature checkerboard pattern with Karl’s cameo silhouette motif.”

The collection will be available to purchase on 7th September from both Vans and Karl Lagerfeld stockists, with prices ranging from €50 to €300. Check out the lookbook and product images below.
