Vans has continued its collaboration with Los Angeles’ MOCA, following last month’s celebration of Californian culture with a new art-themed release. The new capsule covers both footwear and apparel, and features designs from a trio of Californian artists.

Artist Judy Baca has taken inspiration from her 1984 work Hitting the Wall, Women in the Marathon, that was commissioned for the 1984 Summer Olympic Games. This artwork is recreated across the Vans Old Skool silhouette and a matching jacket, while Baca’s 1990 work The World Wall: Triumph of the Hearts adorns a fleece pullover.

The second artist participating in the capsule is Brenna Youngblood, who transforms the Authentic and Classic Slip-On silhouettes through colorful and 3D prints that references the assemblage often used in her work. Rounding out the capsule, Frances Stark has celebrated the city of Los Angeles through a hand-drawn map across the Old Skool, showing the streets that have inspired her throughout her life. Stark’s celebration of L.A. also covers a new Sk8-Hi design.

The second MOCA x Vans collection is due to release on November 12, and will be available via the Vans web store, select retailers and the MOCA store.

In other footwear news, Vans has also recently collaborated with Palace.
