Following her recent Fall/Winter 2019 show at London Fashion Week, British designer Ashley Williams has revealed a collaboration with Vans. Although her runway show featured a partnership with Jimmy Choo, this casual new collab features four silhouettes with many of her design trademarks present, making it a must-cop for any Ashley Williams fans.
First up there’s the Era which arrives with an all-black upper and contrasting white topstitching. It features text-printed laces with grungey, metal rings on the heel and vamp – each with an “A” emblem engraved upon it – and a white midsole. Next, there’s the vibrant Authentic with clashing hot pink tiger print fabric sitting alongside a white canvas upper with a repeat graphic urn pattern – this one’s finished off with red laces and a white midsole with “Vans” and “Ashley” text emblazoned in checkerboards on the side.
The rarely seen Style 93 makes an appearance in William’s signature orange tiger print, with the t-bar silhouette fastened by an adjustable buckle and completed with an edgy, bulky black midsole. Rounding off the lineup is the classic Slip-On that features a monochrome, ‘zine inspired graphic print above.
Check out every silhouette in the gallery above; the Ashley Williams x Vans collection is slated to release at select retailers and Vans’ web store on March 1. In related news, check out our backstage look at Ashley Williams’ FW19 show.
