Fashion Meets Art Trend: Vans x Takashi Murakami

Vans Classic Slip-On shoes with the original waffle bottom slip on skate shoe have been a favourite of pretty much everyone, starting with skateboard-kids in1966 to becoming favourite of fashion style “birds” of today. 49 years after its launch they keep true to their moto “Forever imitated, never duplicated.”

This time Vans has teams with acclaimed Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami for an eclectic collection for Vault by Vans.

Murakami is known and adored for his vibrant and fun paintings, as well as his immaculate sculptures and designs.

Murakami makes the Classic Slip-On – which happens to be his favourite Vans silhouette, the ones he wears in his studio every day – the focus of his next project.
