PALM ANGELS X VAULT BY VANS
The tie-up between Vault by Vans and Palm Angels pays homage to skate culture with a three-piece capsule that celebrates freedom and individuality.
From the beginning, Palm Angels has fostered a liberated way of being, free from constructs, glorifying the uniqueness of individuals and a personal approach to life that tapped into the skateboarding scene.
“Palm Angels started with a photography book and Vans was already there. I took a picture of a guy skating in Venice beach, wearing the most vintage Vans Sk8-Hi I had ever seen and since then, the idea of Palm Angels collaborating with Vans has always been in my mind. It’s now finally reality. With this collection I wanted to recreate exactly that same image: few models with a vintage feeling and a contemporary take,“ says Francesco Ragazzi, founder and Creative Director of Palm Angels.
Releasing on Oct. 1, the collection is meticulously crafted from premium materials featured on the Sk8-Hi VLT LX, Sk8- Mid VLT LX, and the Old Skool LX. In red, grey, white, and black, each one was artfully reinterpreted with the Palm Angels codes and logo appearing on the side of the shoes, recreating the iconic Vans Sidestripe.
