After jumping on a collaboration with ASICS, Vivienne Westwood has returned for a vibrant co-sign, this time with Vans for a footwear capsule dubbed “Anglomania.” Spanning a range of classic silhouettes like Sk8-Hi, Slip-Ons and Old Skools, the assemblage sees a series of bold designs that echo the aesthetic sensibilities of British culture.
Featured are sneakers with punk-inspired 1971 Checkerboard Slip-Ons, Pirate boot Platform Sk8-His, Vintage Style 53s in black suede and other colorful sneakers. One standout piece is a black Sk8-Hi, complete with a wide leather belt strap that goes over the forefoot. The shoe is decked in black all the way from the collars to its tonal midsole, while a bright yellow “Vans” label is sewn over the tongue. Another highlight is a blue Era decorated with Westwood’s logo and multi-colored lightning bolts. More details like crisp white laces, silver-tone eyelets and “V.W.” initials at the rear quarter round up the features of the sneaker.
The Vivienne Westwood x Vans “Anglomania” Capsule is set to release globally on September 20 at vans.com as well as select retailers worldwide for $83 – $153 USD.
