Old Skool LX Bianca Chandon
Vault by Vans comes together with Bianca Chandôn with a shared desire to explore the referential meaning behind the stars. The way in which we are accustomed to their five-pointed shape from childhood to the meaning they take on as you enter adulthood and the influence, they have beyond the beauty we see in the vast sky.
First established in 2014 by Alex Olson, Bianca Chandôn blends the worlds of fashion and skateboarding through designs that pull references seamlessly from ‘70s counterculture, ‘80s clubbing and ‘90s anti-fashion to produce coveted apparel and goods. Each delivery of product explores areas of culture that seem to be forgotten, rejected, or just simply not thought of. The Vault by Vans x Bianca Chandôn collection is based on the shape of stars and how we are so familiarized with shape throughout our lives within mainstream media. Bringing the star concept together with inspiration from the iconic Vault by Vans checkerboard series, these stars are meant to create something familiar to those that wear them and something completely different simultaneously.
The four-piece collection features an all-over star print, a nod to Van's iconic checkerboard print, with an intentionally pre-worn look on the Sk8-Hi Reissue VLT LX, Old Skool VLT LX, Authentic VLT LX and Classic Slip-on VLT LX. Laces and midsoles have a worn-in look, finished off with a seemingly handwritten "Bianca Chandôn" on the heel.
