The Vans x Karl Lagerfeld capsule collection drops September 7, 2017. This is Lagerfeld’s first collaboration with the skate brand.
The collection includes two sneaker designs in classic Vans silhouettes: the Sk8-Hi and the Old Skool.
The sneakers will feature the iconic Vans checkerboard pattern depicting the designer’s profile, and a quilted letter K, amongst other iconic motifs, reports WWD.
Aside from kicks, the collection also includes apparel and bags.
Once released, the collection will retail at Karl Lagerfeld boutiques, select Vans stores, and online at vans.com.
In addition, the full collection will be presented at the Bread and Butter Tradeshow. Held in September this year, the Berlin fashion show features “everyday clothing” and streetwear.
No word on whether the capsule collection will reach our shores, but check back for more localized updates.
