The new capsule Go Your Own Way by Vault by Vans x Aries The spirit of countercultures enters Vans' archives

Vault by Vans and Aries have announced their next collaboration for the FW21 season: a capsule titled "Go Your Own Way". The spirit of the capsule is to celebrate the subcultures and creativity of the new generations by combining contemporary graphics, the vintage aura of American sportswear. The classic skate aesthetic of Vans will therefore be reinterpreted by Sofia Prantera, founder of Aries, who since the time of her studies at Central Saint Martins in London had deepened and studied the culture of ravers and rebels of all ages. These were Prantera's words in describing the collection:

«We wanted the collaboration to follow this formula based on randomness; the same colors do not correspond to perfection, as if they were part of different materials; graphics and logos are inconsistent; on the soles appear completely random apocalyptic stories».

The highlight of the sneaker range are certainly the OG Authentic LX, the first Vans model, in two bright shades. One is the Weed Muted version decorated with a multicolored pattern inspired by the marijuana leaf, with pink, black and yellow striped laces and art nouveau lettering on the sides. The other is called Tiger Muted and has a brindle decoration on the upper with a tie-dye effect. The collection also includes the OG Sk8-Mid LX in lighter versions of the Weed and Tiger shades, the Era LX and the OG Chukka LX in tye-dye, characterized by Aries' brindle graphics on the sides. For clothing, however, the most interesting piece is the Art Trip hoodie decorated with an 80s-style cross on the shoulders, to be combined with tie-dye t-shirts. But there are also sweatshirt and short sets and accessories such as reversible jacquard caps.

The Vault by Vans x Aries "Go Your Own Way" capsule will be available online and at select retailers starting September 11.
