For Spring 2020, KENZO extends its partnership with Vans by releasing a new footwear collaboration. The Vans Sk8-Hi and Old Skool styles are reworked and repainted with vivid, all-over florals, with each print taken from KENZO’s archives.
The two sneaker models are dropping in three prints each, ranging in men’s and women’s sizing. Accompanying the sneaker range is a capsule of ready-to-wear pieces and accessories designed by Felipe Oliveira Baptista, a collection that also makes use of KENZO’s archival floral prints.
To complement the capsule, KENZO is releasing an exclusive lifestyle item created in collaboration with The Skateroom: a limited edition KENZO skateboard. Only 150 pieces will be made available and 100% of profits from the KENZO skateboard art edition will be donated to a social skate project to empower at-risk youth in Jamaica.
Check out the campaign imagery for the collaborative collection in the gallery above, shot by Ari Marcopoulos of seven skaters in Los Angeles. The capsule will be available in KENZO stores globally and KENZO.com from June 17. See the range at the KENZO Paris flagship store in Le Marais and at Selfridges London, with a special takeover of The Bowl at Selfridges.
