To keep you groovy this spring, Vault by Vans and Wacko Maria are releasing a new edition of their vinyl-inspired Vans with an OG Slip-On LX. Driven by high-quality materials and artistic drive, the second drop from their ongoing collaboration presents the OG Slip-On LX and woven short sleeve shirts designed for music lovers.
Celebrating the heritage of both brands, the second drop brings Wacko Maria’s aesthetics to a classic OG Slip-On LX silhouette. The repeating vinyl record pattern infused with Vans’ iconic Checkerboard has been remixed for Slip-On’s in three new colorways: white, brown and purple. This drop is also accompanied by a short film to capture the energy and essence of Wacko Maria. Directed by Margt and starring Japanese actor Kunichi Nomura, the video follows him in the daily activities of what the brand has coined the Guilty Party lifestyle.
Unlike the first drop, which only included footwear, the second drop of the Vault by Vans x Wacko Maria collaboration includes apparel that pays tribute to vinyl culture. Nomura models the new woven short sleeve shirt in bold white, blue and orange colorways. Made in Japan, this camp collar rayon shirt is inspired by one of Wacko Maria’s most storied creations throughout the years. With both brands’ attention to detail and craftsmanship, fans will be drawn to the high-quality materials and construction of this shirt.
Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for more information on the Vault by Vans x Wacko Maria, which drops on May 15 and will be available globally at select Vault by Vans retailers.
