Artist Connor Tingley Joins Vault by Vans on the Authentic
Featuring a collaborative colorway with Dover Street Market as well.
Artist and designer Connor Tingley was formally trained as an illustrator and classical painter as a kid and has since brought his artistic vision to collaborative projects. The Southern California native began preparing his latest project in 2020, pouring hours into research and design for the special opportunity to work with Vans. As part of the Vault by Vans line, Tingley’s work with the brand has been carefully crafted with purpose, pulling inspiration from Vans’ origins.
Working with the Vans Authentic, Tingley has prepared two colorways, including one in collaboration with Dover Street Market. Both feature typical Authentic construction, including a canvas upper and rubber sole. However, each carry unique linework from head to toe that emphasizes imperfection and acceptance. The blue and white colorway features a hand drawn checkered pattern with red splotches throughout the upper while the black and white pair with Dover Street Market carries references to the boutique with various checkers featuring its house logo shape and “DSM” text.
Release for both of the Connor Tingley x Vault by Vans Authentics is scheduled for October 22 via Vans and select Vault by Vans retailers such as Dover Street Market.
