Yusuke Hanai has lent his illustration skills to several collaborations over the years, and for his latest work the artist has reunited with Vans for a graphic-heavy collection. After first linking up in 2016, the duo returns with another surf-inspired capsule featuring shoes, apparel and accessories.

The footwear in the assortment encompasses classic styles including Vans’ Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF, Authentic SF lace-up and Slip-On SF. Each shoe has been printed with drawings that utilize Hanai’s signature cartoon-like approach, relying on a black-and-white palette with rich shades of red and green as key colors. The graphics also extend to the apparel within the range, which includes short sleeve T-shirts, an all-over printed button-down and matching boardshorts. A trucker hat and beach towel round out the pieces, ensuring a full expression of surf essentials.

The Vans x Yusuke Hanai capsule is priced at $20 USD for a graphic tee, up to $72 USD for the Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF. Hanai and Vans hosted a launch event for the collection last week at Thalia Surf in Laguna Beach, California, with styles now available globally on Vans’ website.
