Vans Dennis Hopper Collection
Dennis Lee Hopper did, does, and always will represent the iconoclast; the revolution of creative self-expression; the culture of Vans. From Easy Rider to Apocalypse Now to Blue Velvet, on canvases portraying everything from abstract expressionism to photorealism, in photographic portraits on film and paper, Hopper’s maniacal pursuits illustrated a rare genius. Before we lost one of American art, film and photography’s most influential iconoclasts, Dennis Hopper gave Vans a very special opportunity to collaborate on a curated collection of footwear and apparel featuring some of his very favorite work; 74 years of rebellious brilliance, culled it into a small, sincere collection befitting a lifetime of fearless style. The collection includes a heavyweight waxed canvas jacket, the Hopper Morocco that features a cool photo collage on the inside liner as well as a quality yarn dye woven, the Hopper Lidgate. Also look for five premium tees featuring iconic artwork and photos and a stylish driver cap, the Hopper Talfourd that comes in a soft canvas with leather trims. A tan stonewashed canvas Era and waxed canvas Chukka, both with leather details, complete this retrospective assortment, available exclusively at Urban Outfitters for Fall 2011.
