Vault by Vans has teamed up with Copson for a collaborative summer release entitled “What’s Your Fantasy? The Great Unknown”.

Seen as a natural fit by both brands thanks their skateboarding roots, both Vans and Copson share a sense of freedom in its DNA. The Vans playground is California, USA, while Copson hails from Calabria, Italy — two regions known for its sunshine.

The Californian droughts of the ‘70s became a breeding ground for the birth of bowl skating. Surfers took to the empty swimming pools to find pleasure in trying something new. Vans gifted them its shoes and became and naturally aligned with this movement. It is an era of skateboarding that has forever inspired Copson.

In typically understated Copson style, the collection has been influenced by the brand’s well-being and spirituality ethos, resulting in both clean and timeless designs. The Epoch sneaker has been recreated with Italian suedette, the Slip-on features a favourite print from the Vans archives, and the Authentic is updated with suede detailing.

Following the lockdown restrictions imposed globally, Copson photographer and film director Romano Pizzichini turned the lens onto himself with a ‘self portrait’ series shot at home in London.

The “What’s your fantasy?” project celebrates the beauty and magic that can be born from the new and unfamiliar and is an optimistic nod to the changes that are going on around us in the world today.

The Vault by Vans x Copson collection drops on June 30, 2020, and will be available via the Copson web store.
