Emerging Malaysian artist and Vans Asia Custom Culture winner Kide Baharudin has teamed up with Vans for his first-ever official head-to-toe collection this spring.

Taking inspiration from his relationship with local history and culture, the apparel and footwear collaboration is a reflection of Baharudin’s playful, vibrant take on storytelling and the characters he created. “When I am cycling in my hometown, I always love observing the small village where I grew up. I like to imagine how the place looked back in the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s. I try to find the story through my parents’ childhood. Then I’ll illustrate this in my paintings,” he said in a statement.

Baharudin’s colorful, hand-painted illustrations breathe in new life as it spreads across the collection. The Vans Slip-On SF in a “Kide Classic White/Marshmallow” colorway acts as the highlight of the collab, with the updated classic crafted with water-based inks and glues. The silhouette utilizes a sturdy cotton canvas upper, collapsible kick down heel, Vans UltraCush sockliner and the original waffle outsole.

In support of the Slip-On SF, the duo is also offering two more silhouettes — a Vans Authentic SF and Slide-On — with each pair designed with similar artwork. Rounding out the Kide x Vans collection are a 100% Rayon, straight-hem Camp T-shirt in all-over print, surf trunks, T-shirts, tank tops, backpacks and two hats.

The Kide Baharudin x Vans collection is available now on the Vans online store.

In related news, Vans, The North Face and more have donated $1.5 million USD in COVID-19 relief efforts.
