Looks like the fashion world’s love affair with skater culture is far from over with skate brand Vans teaming up with Karl Lagerfeld on a special capsule collection.
According to WWD, the black-and-white collection will remix Vans’ classic checkerboard pattern with a motif of Lagerfeld’s iconic profile, boucle fabric and a quilted letter K. It will reinterpret six Vans footwear classics, including the Sk8-Hi laceless platform, Old Skool laceless and the Classic Slip-On, all of which will be outfitted in leather and adorned with the K.
The collab will also include apparel, such as a T-shirt with the Kaiser wearing a checkerboard tie, a black-and-white raglan sleeve bomber, and a premium leather backpack with — you guessed it! — that quilted K.
Though the capsule will be presented at the Bread & Butter trade show in Berlin early September. It will be available as of Sept. 7 in Karl Lagerfeld boutiques internationally and select Vans accounts, as well as online with prices ranging from $40-$300.
Check out the collection below and prepare to see items from this capsule everywhere during fashion week!
