Vans is not holding back on the collaborations this Fall as it has already revealed joint capsules with the likes of Nigel Cabourn and Warner Bros. for a spooky season assortment. And to keep this momentum trucking along, the Anaheim skate imprint is now recruiting Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art for a four-piece footwear project. The new collection is a celebration of California’s culture and creativity and includes silhouettes such as the Authentic, Slip-On, Sk8-Hi and the EVDNT UltimateWaffle.

Each take in this range is styled in its own unique way in terms of its color-blocking, but they all feature the graphic design icons made by Ivan Chermayeff and
Tom Geismar in the 1980s. The most flashy of bunch is the Authentic pair which dons an all-over green and white polka dot pattern and the aforementioned logo on the lateral sides. Slip-Ons are predominantly done up in white, but feature blue and white checkerboard patterns around the collars, and the toe boxes equally split up the MOCA acronym. The Sk8-His here opt to go with a two-toned motif with white being the hue that covers most of the ground. Adjacent is a bold red that submerges the heels while faint gray branding is adorned on each foot. Lastly, the EVDNT UltimateWaffle opts for the grayscale aesthetic. Uppers and sole units are done up in a cool gray tone, and come ornamented with black branding atop the side panels and the tongues.

The first launch of this collection is slated to release via Vans this November.
