P.A.M. Hook Up with Vans for Super Psychedelic CollaborationRelease: 27 August 2022
Founded by Misha Hollenbach and Shauna Toohey, Melbourne imprint Perks and Mini (P.A.M.) have been serving up cutting-edge streetwear for over two decades. Certified stalwarts in the collaborative space, P.A.M. are now hooking up with Vans for a botanic, psychedelic interpretation of two classic silos, the Authentic and Slip-On. Both are hitting shores Down Under today!
Emblazoned with P.A.M.'s signature floral motifs, the whimsical orange, purple and brown flowers sprout across hallucinogenic checkerboard patterns that boast multiple focal points.
In terms of the Authentic, P.A.M. have opted for a violet palette on the OG vulcanised waffle outsole, with a blast of radiant orange florets adding further personality. Up top, the classic low-top skate design utilises the checkerboard pattern on the durable canvas uppers, while the black laces are again fed through metal eyelets.
The ‘trip’ continues on the Vans Slip-On, where flowering violet plants enliven the same checkerboard pattern. Down below, the collaboration is kept a little more classic, with clean white midsoles featuring earthy brown flowers on the underside.
The sneakers will also launch alongside an apparel collection featuring button-ups, long sleeves, bucket hats and tees.
