Aries x Vans: a sparkling new collaboration


Four years after their very first collaboration, London-based label Aries and skateboard brand Vans have joined forces for a second time with a graphic collection consisting of three sneaker models and a textile range.

Created by the Italian designer Sofia Prantera behind the women’s streetwear label Aries, this collection in collaboration with the Californian label Vans by Vault is an ode to London’s 80’s rave culture, self-expression and creativity. On the programme? Three pairs of sneakers including Vans Authentic, SK8-Mid LX and Chukka LX in tie and dye, tiger and multi-coloured cannabis leaf prints.

Inspirational messages such as “Go your own way” are featured on most designs. In addition, the collection is complemented by numerous textile pieces following the same DNA. Animal prints are featured on oversized short-sleeve shirts and crewnecks, while Aries’ signature tie and dye is featured on t-shirts, denim shorts and hoodies. The unisex collection is due to be released on August 21st on the Vans website as well as the Aries website.
