Star Wars X Vans Full Collection Revealed
We've known this special colab has been brewing for a while now, but today we finally get a proper look at everything the Vans x Star Wars collection offers. We've gotta say, we're impressed. It would have been easy to whack character prints on blank backgrounds or just depict scenes from the films on the Vans canvas kicks, but the Cali company has been a lot more subtle and clever. They've weaved some of your favourite stars and androids from the original trilogy, like Yoda, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Stormtroopers and AT-AT Walkers, into colourful prints across your favourite Vans silhouettes, like the Era, Slip-On, Sk8-Hi and Half Cab. You have to double take or know what you're looking for to see the Star Wars motifs in most of the designs, meaning the range should appeal to Force fiends and everyday lovers of pretty patterns. Some highlights include the bandana capsule, which features a black and white paisley print composed of Storm Trooper helmets; and the 'Aloha Yoda' pack, which takes a bright floral pattern and slips Yoda into the picture to chill hard on the flowers. There's shoes, hats, backpacks and tees up for grabs in this huge range, and you should have a good chance of obtaining the Classics and apparel side of the deal – it will arrive June 1 at Vans retail stores and select locations globally. Not such good news for those chasing the Vault by Vans editions (which can be seen in the final seven photos of the gallery above), as there will be less than 300 pairs of each style manufactured. The Vaults will drop in May exclusively at the Vans DQM General in Boston and New York, Opening Ceremony locations in Los Angeles, London, New York and Ace Hotel New York, Off the Hook in Montreal, Colette in Paris, Firmament in Berlin and Tresbien in Sweden.
