New York-based fashion designer Sandy Liang and Vans are back together for their third collaborative installment, this time around presenting reworked takes on the Sk8-Hi, Style 73 DX, Half Cab 33 DX, Authentic 44 DX, and a men’s and womenswear apparel collection.

For Liang’s latest collection, the designer draws from ’90s childhood nostalgia, informed by “grandma fashion, sport femme, nostalgia, and humor,” as well as anime cartoons, with all of this coming together on the sneakers and clothes. Take the Sk8-Hi Platform 2.0 for example, which comes in an all-over rose-embroidered green canvas ensemble, or the Sk8-Hi Tapered Modular (an entirely new silhouette), which combines the signature shape and style of the original sneaker in black and white with a detachable sole unit extension and a deconstructed slim collar that’s adorned with lace frills, much like the doilies you’d find in your grandma’s house.

As for the Style 73 DX, Liang works in a floral embroidery on one side of the uppers and “Lower East Side Lover” themes on the other side, while the Authentic 44 DX sports a multicolored gingham fabric design alongside a lace collar and a detachable pouch on the tongue.

Elsewhere, we find a Half Cab 33 DX covered in dark green sherpa — and lots of it at that — alongside custom flower-shaped eyelets, while workwear staples such a the Chore Coat have been reworked in cotton canvas with an all-over embroidery, patch pockets, and a corduroy collar. Lastly, quaint details adorn items such as the bucket hat, chinos, sherpa mock neck, crossbody bag, and more.

Sandy Liang’s Vans collection will drop at select Vans retailers, Vans.com and Sandy Liang’s website on January 28. Check out the lookbook above for more detail.
