A new collaboration will shortly brighten fashion horizons. The skater footwear and apparel label Vans and Karl Lagerfeld’s eponymous brand have announced the launch of a common collection this fall, reports Women’s Wear Daily (WWD).
Composed of clothing and shoes, the capsule will be available worldwide from September 7, 2017.
“Ready for a black and white Fall”: this was the message circulated on social networks by Karl Lagerfeld on Wednesday, August 23, 2017, accompanied by an image of a casual two-tone outfit in the two colors.
Black and white will also provide the palette for Lagerfeld’s footwear and apparel capsule collaboration with Vans. The collection will be presented at Bread & Butter in Berlin (September 1-3, 2017), and made available worldwide from September 7, 2017.
For the partnership, the two brands have decided to combine their two universes. Vans’s signature checkerboard pattern will be restyled to feature a cameo motif of Lagerfeld’s iconic profile, and the pieces will also sport a quilted letter “K”.
Several of Vans’s classic sneakers will be reinterpreted in the capsule, including “Sk8-Hi”, “Classic Slip-On” and “Old Skool” models.
As for apparel, the collection will include a T-shirt with a portrait of Karl Lagerfeld wearing a checkerboard tie, a bomber jacket, and a premium leather rucksack.
Prices for the collection will range from USD40 to USD300, reports the fashion specialist website.
