When and where to buy the Vans x Van Gogh collection
Embrace your inner artistic side with the newest collection from Vans!Vans is known for its hip and happening collaborations. The Marvel collection was not only as cool as hell and super successful the Spongebob Squarepants collaboration proved the brand is still down with the kids.
However, Vans is launching its newest collection and it's really like nothing we've ever seen before. The brand is collaborating with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam to bring you an exclusive range of footwear featuring Von Gogh artwork. It isn't something we expected from the brand but honestly, we're digging it and ready to embrace our ~artistic~ side!
For those unaware, Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous artists known for his incredibly unique and emotional paintings. The paintings selected for the collaboration include Skull, Almond Blossom, Sunflowers and of course, Van Gogh’s self-portrait. Each painting is tastefully portrayed throughout the collection and is a wonderful acknowledgement of Van Gogh's work.
“We are delighted with the Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection, as it ties in with our mission to make the life and work of Vincent van Gogh accessible to as many people as possible in order to enrich and inspire them,” said Adriaan Dönszelmann, Managing Director of the Van Gogh Museum. “By uniting Van Gogh’s iconic artworks with iconic Vans styles, our partnership brings Vincent’s art “Off The Wall” and into the world to a new audience outside the museum.”
The collection doesn't just include shoes either; it has a range of apparel pieces, too. Each piece from the footwear collection of the Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection is finished with unique and custom footbed art that mimics Van Gogh’s memorable brush strokes. The collection will also feature a special little hangtag that illuminates historical facts behind each piece of Vincent van Gogh’s art and if that isn't the perfect amount of extra then I don't know what is.
So when and where can you buy?
The good news is, you won't have to fly to Amsterdam to appreciate Van Gogh's work anymore. The collection is set to launch on 3 August and you can purchase it in Australia. The one place you'll be able to purchase it from is directly from the Vans website so mark those calendars!
