Continuing on a roll of recent collaborations with brands ranging from Patta to Wood Wood and the emergence of a possible forthcoming Off-White™ link-up, Vans has now come together with womenswear labels MadeMe and X-Girl. Working together on a limited-edition collection of footwear and apparel, the capsule pays homage to Vans’ storied skateboarding heritage and an inspiration that the trio all share.
Amongst the selection, which also features a long-sleeve T-shirt with statement dual branding, the notable appearance of the Vans ‘Wally’ silhouette marks the shoe’s first re-issue since its mid-90s release.
The collaborative capsule emphasizes the three brands’ female-first ethos, explained succinctly here by MadeMe designer Erin Magee, “I hope to see more women’s ‘street’ brands owned by women be a presence and respected in the scene.”
The exclusive MadeMe x X-Girl x Vans collection drops December 15, available at Opening Ceremony in the U.S., X-Girl and XLARGE stores in Japan, Worksout in Korea, as well as Yoho and Vans.com.cn in China.
