Building from the oversized, loose silhouettes reminiscent of the past, Vans designers modernized the designs with novelty print detailing by re-imagining a vintage Van Doren Rubber Company logo with the iconic ‘Flying V’ graphic. The capsule collection is streamlined through throwback silhouettes and materials, to be easily worn together or separately.
The Design Assembly collection is rounded out by backpacks, socks, hats, T-shirts, and hoodies as well as footwear options across classic Vans styles. To capture the essence of this throwback-inspired assortment, each footwear silhouette has been covered in matching plush corduroy material in black, bossa nova and sunflower colorways as a true nod to the ‘90s. The Design Assembly Collection will be available in-store on the 25th of July at the following Vans Retail Doors – Gateway, Sandton, V&A Waterfront and Canal Walk .
