August 2013 brings with it the end of summer and also the arrival in-store of the fifth and ultimate collaborative collection of Vans by KENZO.

Carol Lim and Humberto Leon propose three of the preeminent prints of the KENZO Fall/Winter 2013 season for this final collection, three vibrant colorways inspired by the celestial - those of flying tigers, lightning and clouds. These multicolored prints come available in the traditional Vans slip-on and Vans Authentic styles and also on a new shape for KENZO, the Vans Chukka.
The final collaboration has been documented in a series of images shot by New York based photographer Brianna Capozzi. Today's forecast: 24 hours of precipitation,
cloudy weather with lightning before the end of the day. "Humidity is rising. Barometer's getting low"... It's raining Vans!
A tête à tête with Brianna will be online this week if you want to know more about how she played with the weather.
