Vans has partnered with Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and legendary British artist Damien Hirst for a series of silhouettes that bring his iconic style to its footwear. The release is the latest project from Hirst and Palms Casino Resort, which recently saw the artist design a Demon With Bowl sculpture in the pool complex and a number of his works added to 9,000-square-foot sky villa.

The pack features three different takes on the Classic Slip-On VLT LX and three  versions of the Sk8-Hi Reissue VLT LX. The different designs all reference iconic Hirst artworks, with one set featuring a colorful all-over spot pattern, alongside a twist on the classic Vans checkerboard. Other designs reference Hirst’s butterfly work — showcased in his recent “Mandalas” exhibition — and the spin skull design.

Speaking about the capsule, Hirst explained, “I’ve always loved Vans and the artwork works brilliantly on these shoes. I can’t wait for people to see them. It’s amazing for an artist to have the sort of freedom Palms and Vans have given me.”

The Damien Hirst x Vault by Vans collection will release on December 6, exclusively via the Vault by Vans store in New York and the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

In other Vans news, the brand recently debuted a trippy tie-dye pack.
