With a bumper 2017 having just passed Vans has started off 2018 with a bang, dropping a three-way collaboration entitled “Seoul Block.” The Korea-focused collection taps two of the country’s most renowned streetwear names – LIFUL and Mischief – who have both created two silhouettes each.
LIFUL chose to work on the Authentic and The Lampin respectively, making the latter in two-tone with a checkerboard sidewall while the former is a plain white with checkerboard lining. Both silhouettes use a hairy suede finish.
Mischief also used an Authentic model, which they covered in an all-over print of the brand’s logo. In contrast to LIFUL, they chose the Old Skool as its secondary model, using a plain cream color for that silhouette. The Vans “Seoul Block” collection will be available from January 20 at Vans Korea, LIFUL’s online store and select retailers.
Elsewhere, Vans continue to rework the Old Skool, recently recreating the shoe as part of its “Military Function” series.
