Renowned artist Geoff McFetridge is joining forces with Vans for a limited-edition capsule collection of footwear and apparel. For the Vault by Vans x Geoff McFetridge, the artist finds inspiration in his most beloved items — a favorite pair of pants, the T-shirt he wears to paint, vintage tote bags and a pair of Vans from Japan he received as a child. These motifs appear on the OG Authentic LX, OG Style 38 NS and OG Slip-On LX silhouettes as well as an apparel collection spanning hoodies, sweats, hats, totes and socks.
“As a skater I have a close personal history with Vans,” McFetridge says of the collaboration. “I have done a number of projects over the years but this collection was an opportunity to create a microcosm of my personal history with the brand.” He adds: “My thinking with projects like this is that they can be approached in the same way you might approach creating a piece of art. Both grow out of a similar process, and though the results are different, they feel like they are pulled from the same world.”
The full collection arrives at the Vans web store and Vault by Vans retailers on December 2.
