That’s what actors call “range”. Shortly after announcing a playful Patchwork collab with size?, VANS now turn to the fine arts. The Van Gogh Museum x VANS Collection includes a selection of footwear and apparel inspired by the Dutch painter’s masterpieces.
Together with the team of the Amsterdam Museum, the skate brand selected four main bodies of work for the collaboration. The collection now celebrates Skull, Almond Blossom, Sunflowers and Van Gogh’s self-portrait in a whole new way. But not only the link of Van Gogh and Van Doren has a nice ring to it. VANS‘ “Off The Wall” slogan receives a new meaning as the storied paintings make their way from the museum walls into the present world.
“We are delighted with the Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection, as it ties in with our mission to make the life and work of Vincent van Gogh accessible to as many people as possible in order to enrich and inspire them”, said Adriaan Dönszelmann, Managing Director of the Van Gogh Museum.
The final collection now showcases the post-impressionist artist’s timeless works ccombined with the distinct VANS design approach. Applied to sneakers like the Old Skool, Sk8-Hi, Authentic and Classic Slip-On as well as tees, a long-sleeve, hoodies, a bomber jacket, hats and a backpack, Van Gogh’s unique imagery makes for a remarkable collaboration.
Fittingly, the lookbook displays the pieces next to the painting’s that inspired them. Check out the artful images below and read on for the release info.
