Word on the street

The Kaiser takes his monochrome code to the streets

If there were ever to be an official induction of Vans into the fashion set, this collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld comes pretty close. Teaming up on both apparel and footwear, the Kaiser's love for monochrome is apparent across the range — the tie-up spawning logo T-shirts, leather accessories, and the designer's renditions of Vans' iconic sneaker models in black and white. 

Recurring motifs include Lagerfeld's K-quilting and Karl cameo, the former administered on a backpack and footwear and the latter, as an all-over print on a pair of Classic Slip-Ons. The designer's logo also adorns the heel tab of sneakers discretely, a detail fans of his eponymous label will be more than familiar with.
