Japanese label BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS has debuted a new collaboration with Vault by Vans, introducing new takes on the Authentic and Old Skool silhouettes. Continuing the label’s Americana and West Coast influence, the capsule is heavily inspired by heritage textiles, with vintage made-in-USA bandanas used throughout the collaboration.
The two silhouettes are prominently feature these bandanas, each of which is cut at different seams to showcase the collection’s craftsmanship and to ensure no two pairs are identical. The Authentic silhouette arrives in three different bandana colorways, complete with a red foxing stripe and red “Off The Wall” heel logo.
For the Old Skool, BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS and Vault by Vans have honored its history as the first shoe to ever sport the signature sidestripe. The silhouette is constructed from a mix of rich blue canvas and suede, which acts as a base for the bandana detailing on the tongue, sidestripe and medial panel. The bandana influence then continues onto a range of clothing and accessories.
Take a look at the collection in the gallery above, and expect the BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS x Vault by Vans Old Skool and Authentic to release in the near future.
