Experienced observers will start some Pavlov style salivating just from seeing the words Vans and WTAPS in the same zip code as each other. The pairing of WTAPS’ expertly understated aesthetic with the indispensable casual style of Vans has resulted in a series of highly acclaimed and even more highly sought after designs.
The latest collaborative effort between Vans and WTAPS, a 13-piece collection comprised of iconic footwear silhouettes, apparel essentials, and a military inspired duffel bag, takes the combination in a slightly different direction. While previous efforts have highlighted the offhand elegance of WTAPS classic, American ‘ivy” inspiration, the new collection leans into Vans’ strong skate and alternative subculture roots.
Bold flame graphics, camouflage patterns and prominently placed sloganeering text showcase Vans’ signature ‘off the wall’ spirit, while the premium materials, attention to fine detail and master craftsmanship of WTAPS interpret this defiant individualism in an elevated, contemporary fashion context. Think of it as the difference between general admission and an all access backstage pass.
