Vans Vault Our Legacy
This spring, Vault by Vans collaborates with Stockholm-based menswear powerhouse, Our Legacy to create an apparel capsule collection inspired by Californian hardcore punk culture. The offerings include Vans’ classic footwear silhouettes in bold orange, black and white colorways that convey a striking blend of street culture and high quality design.
Our Legacy co-founder, Jockum Hallin, grew up in Sweden in the early 90’s in a world of do-it-yourself culture that exposed him to skateboarding, touring with hardcore bands, releasing records and sleeping on floors. Hallin’s spirited attitude during this time developed into creative endeavors across music and fashion, all of which were driven by Hallin’s affinity toward the subversive culture that was burgeoning in the States.
The Vault by Vans x Our Legacy collection is directly inspired by Hallin’s interpretation of Californian skate, surf and hardcore punk culture in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. The collection executes minimal and monochromatic design elements, reduced in detailing and colors, focusing on shapes, silhouettes, materials and fabric qualities.
The Vault by Vans x Our Legacy collection features deluxe versions of Vans’ iconic footwear silhouettes including the Half Cab Pro ’92 LX, Sk8-Mid Pro ’91 LX, Old Skool Pro ’92 LX and Authentic Pro LX in orange, black and white iterations. The Half Cab Pro ’92 LX, Sk8-Mid Pro LX and Old Skool Pro ’92 LX feature hairy suede alongside high quality army nylon fabrication to create a subtle contrast. With a close attention to detail, the Sidestripe styles feature the iconic symbol in full grain Swedish natural leather. To round out the footwear offerings, Vault by Vans x Our Legacy introduces the Authentic Pro LX, covered in orange and black nylon fabrication with raised foxing. Each style in the footwear capsule features a custom “Curated by Our Legacy” overdyed label and custom footbed.
