Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami Collection

Release June 27th, 2015 @ Vans.com

Ende Juni kommt die vor kurzem angekündigte Kollektion Vans by Vault x Takashi Murakami in die Läden. Bei der Kollektion handelt es sich um eine Zusammenarbeit von Vans mit dem erfolgreichen, zeitgenössischen japanischen Künstler, Takashi Murakami. Murakami, dessen Vans-Lieblingsmodell der Classic Slip-On ist, ist für seine lebendigen Bilder und Skulpturen bekannt. Lebendige Farben, Formen, bildlich inspiriert von der traditionellen japanischen Kunst- und Popkultur im Anime-Stil prägen Murakamis Arbeit. Zwei Retro-Motive, eine lachende Blume und ein Totenkopfmuster hat Murakami auf seinen Vans-Favoriten, den Classic Slip-On, gebracht.

Insgesamt sind sechs Design für die Großen, sowie drei für die Kleinen aus der Zusammenarbeit hervorgegangen. Die Hälfte der Modelle der Erwachsenen kommt mit dem lachenden Blumen-Print in Blau, mehrfarbigen und silberfarbenen Ausführungen, während die andere Hälfte mit den Totenkopf-Motiven in Dunkelblau, Gelb und Gold beeindruckt ist. Die Slip-Ons für die Kids werden in schlichterer Ausführung kommen, und zwar mit Murakamis Blumen, Totenkopf und Hundelogos als einzelnes Motiv auf der Toebox.

In der Kollektion werden außerdem Kleidungsstücke und drei Skate-Decks mit Grafiken passend zur Schuhkollektion enthalten sein. Am 27. Juni 2015 ist es soweit, dann wird die Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami Kollektion weltweit auf den Markt kommen.

Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami Collection

Release June 27th, 2015 @ Vans.com

Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, partners with acclaimed Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami for an eclectic collection under Vans’ premium label, Vault by Vans. Celebrated for his vibrant paintings, as well as his immaculate sculptures and designs, Murakami makes his favorite Vans silhouette, the Classic Slip-On – which happens to be the shoe he wears in his studio every day – the focus of his next project. In addition to footwear, the Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami collaboration brings forth an artistic assortment of apparel and skate decks for release in late June.

Murakami’s anime-influenced aesthetic is renowned for its incorporation of lively colors, shapes and imagery inspired by traditional Japanese art and pop culture. Now generally recognized as a “Superflat” form, a term he himself coined, his work is known for blurring the line between high and low arts. For fall 2015, two of Murakami’s recurring motifs – the smiling flower and skull patterns – are brought to life in a limited edition selection of Slip-Ons, skateboard decks and tees.

For his collaborative footwear capsule, Murakami presents the Classic Slip-On, in six adult-unisex colorways alongside a trio of toddler-sized offerings. The first half of the adult assortment showcases the smiling flower print in blue, multi-colored and silver line variations while the second half highlights the allover skull arrangement in a darker blue, yellow and gold line color-ups. Murakami’s own dog, Pom, makes a cameo on the footbed of each Slip-On as she sits atop the Vans skateboard logo. The toddler-sized shoes from the collection are stylized in a more subdued set of color-ups that feature single image prints Murakami’s flower, skull and Pom on each toe vamp.

The Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami collaboration rounds out with three graphic styles of shirts and skate decks. The tees highlight the smiling flower in a multicolored collage, the skull stamp in an allover silver outline and Murakami himself on a blue background. The skateboard decks feature the same patterns on their undersides while Pom makes an additional cameo on the wood-finished topside of each deck.
