Supreme x Vans 2013 Spring/Summer Collection
To celebrate the coming solstice, Supreme has released a capsule collection in conjunction with Vans, basking in its skate heritage with an all-over floral print – aptly juxtaposing alternative punk culture with 19th century European art. Here, the popular Sk8-Hi, Chukka and Era receive covet renditions courtesy of artwork from New Order’s 1983 album release: Power, Corruption & Lies. The album sleeve was designed by English art director Peter Saville who interpolated his idea from French artist Henri Fantin-Latour’s A Basket of Roses painting. The Chukka and Era feature canvas uppers with leather lining and insoles, and as usual the Sk8-Hi features a premium suede toe box with canvas and leather accents, rounded up with a white vulcanized sole on all profiles. The capsule collection will be available in-store in NY, LA, London and online on March 7, in addition to availability in Japan from March 9 onwards.
