Vans X Karen Richter Collabo: Coming with the Cuteness!

21 May 2008, 15.23 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

A Vans collabo with New York City illustrator Karen Richter strikes me as a match made in heaven. There’s just something about her cute designs that matches up well with the sensibilities of Vans’ feminine side.

All this chilly/rainy weather has me feeling the blues so I like the top pair better.

Vans X Niagara Collabo

28 April 2008, 21.58 | Posted in Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

We posted up images of this Vans Niagara collabo awhile back when Samia and I visited the Vans showroom, but here are some spiffier images that give a better view of the art:

If you’re not familiar, Niagara is a female artist, known for her femme fatale imagery. A couple of her quotes on her website are funny: “I paint real strong women; a Niagara girls [is] revengeful, but she gets her own way.” And even more humorous: “It’s the men who cry in my paintings.” Well that’s nice for a change!

Vans X Greg “PNUT” Galinsky Slip-on

17 April 2008, 18.32 | Posted in Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

I posted up a Vans/Greg “PNUT” Galinksy jacket a couple days ago and mentioned that I was waiting on a resend of some hightops from the same collabo. Well, they still haven’t come so in the meantime, here are the slip-ons:

Vans is coming with the women’s product! Here’s a peek at a jacket that was designed in collabo with Greg “PNUT” Galinsky, a skater/designer, who, natch, reps for Souther Cal.

^^This is jacket is part of a fall 2008 collection for women. I got some shoe images, too, but the ones of the hightops weren’t working so look for those later today.

24/7 Vans

Now you can dress in Vans‘ famous checkerboard from head-to-toe, morning, noon and night:

Click to the right to see the cami and pajama pants. (I got an image of some really cute panties, too, but damned if I couldn’t convert the stupid-ass TIF file to something that would work on this site. I’m telling you, it’s always the little things that bog your ass down for HOURS!)

Also, I noticed that these items are not for sale on Vans’ web site so I’m thinking they’ll hit stores mid-to-late summer. But don’t quote me on that!

Vans Spring ‘08 Preview!

23 January 2008, 01.44 | Posted in Sneakers | No comments »

Vans was previewing its spring 2008 line today at its New York showroom and I got a chance to go over there and scope out the goods. I picked out my faves and then Maria, who reps the women’s part of Vans’ line, showed me the stuff she thought would be a big hit this spring. Which ones are YOUR faves?:

Mine first:

RTEmagicC WellesleyHighs.jpg Vans Spring 08 Preview!

^^Wellesley high-tops: I’m still loving the look of a pair of high-tops with straight legs and they don’t come much more adorable than these. I especially like the strawberry-colored ones on the far right.

RTEmagicC VaultNiagraSk8 Hi.jpg Vans Spring 08 Preview!

^^From the Vault collection: this one is a collabo with Detroit artist Niagara; again, I’m partial to these ’cause they’re high.

RTEmagicC VaultNiagraSlipOn1 01.jpg Vans Spring 08 Preview!

^^A canvas slip-on from the Vault Niagara series. This one reads “I Am Not Your Bitch.”

RTEmagicC VaultNiagraSlipOn2.jpg Vans Spring 08 Preview!

One more Vault Niagara: “You’ll Tell Nobody Nothing.”

Maria thinks a big trend this spring is going to be more streamlined looks. Here are some of the shoes that are getting a big response from retailers (not that ones above aren’t; Maria thinks hightops are the hotness, too):

RTEmagicC LesleyBallet1.jpg Vans Spring 08 Preview!

^^Pointy-toed ballet flats. The prints on these are really amazing.

RTEmagicC AbbyBoatshoe.jpg Vans Spring 08 Preview!

^^Satin boat shoes. These images do NOT do these extra cute shoes justice (especially since the red one is out of focus, dammit!).

RTEmagicC LowProfiles.jpg Vans Spring 08 Preview!

^^Low profile canvas group. The colors, patterns and fabrics are what help Vans stand out from the crowd. Plus, the little Vans logo is pretty happening, too!

RTEmagicC Sk8 HiClassic.jpg Vans Spring 08 Preview!

^^Sk-8 Hi in white canvas. Maria said that this style, which, while not new, is consistently popular among stylists requesting products for shoots. I mean, how can you beat an all white classic? Every sneaker brand of any merit can claim one. The ones that can’t? Well, they’re just not as good.

I hope you liked!

Vans Vault Spring ‘08 Collection – Color Theory

03 January 2008, 14.01 | Posted in Sneakers | No comments »

Vans Vault Spring '08

Vans presents their new Vault Spring 2008 range, with the theme “Color Theory”. The new collection presents sneakers in a variety of colors and textures, inspired by art and the counter-culture movement of skateboarding and surfing. Stylistic simplicity, designer textiles and patterns make their way onto the Vans classics.

The collection as usual has some strong pieces in it. We also enjoy very much the wide range of simple sneakers without designs or patterns. 

Check out the complete Vans Vault Spring 2008 collection after the jump.
