Vault by Vans partners up with true kindred spirits in Brooklyn based design collective LQQK Studio. LQQK’s artistically elevated interpretations of their skate and street fashion culture roots dovetail nicely with the Vault by Vans philosophy, which reworks original Vans icons with an emphasis on premium construction and a sophisticated design sensibility.
The collection’s footwear comprises 6 individual styles across two silhouettes, the iconic Authentic, and a recently reintroduced deep cut skate shoe from the Vans archive, the Epoch Sport. Featuring a unique, truncated, ‘V’ shaped version of the familiar Vans side stripe branding, the Epoch Sport LX sports translucent soles and subtly textured suede uppers, for an offhand blend of timeless style and board readiness. The LQQK take on the classic Authentic applies the infrequently seen flying V Vans logo to the effortless, casual refinement of the shoes’ hairy suede uppers.
The melding of performance and classic style continues with a selection of apparel. Co-branded, checkerboard jacquard tees, athletic shorts, six panel hats, polo shirts, and a translucent coaches jacket transitions from board to street without a second thought.
