Vans Enters the World of Collina Strada with Footwear and Apparel Collection

Collina Strada, the eco-conscious brand at the forefront of New York City’s fashion scene, is bringing its weird, wonderful eye to the world of Vans. The indie luxury label and footwear giant are gearing up to release the world’s most whimsical skate gear, a collection of marker-scribbled sneakers and butterfly-printed T-shirts.

The centerpiece of the collection is Vans’ classic Slip-On, covered in childlike drawings of houses and flowers. The colorful print is assembled from a series of sketches that Collina Strada founder and creative director Hillary Taymour, who grew up wearing Vans, invited friends and collaborators to create using a single prompt: Draw your dream home.

Also included in the range is Vans’ Sk8-Hi, wrapped in the pattern of a butterfly wing, and a Vibram-soled version of the Old-Skool, rendered in baby pink and metallic chartreuse.

Vans x Collina Strada debuted at New York Fashion Week as part of the designer’s Fall/Winter 2023 runway show on February 10, where models and front row guests wore pieces from the collection.

The Vans x Collina Strada collection is now available at Vans.co.za and select Vans retail stores.
