KENZO and Vans have teamed up four times on different capsule collections. Season after season, the Vans Authentic, chukkas and Slip-Ons were covered in the iconic prints of the brand and the limited edition kicks sell out in mere days. KENZO creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim were keen to impart a classic American aesthetic into the Paris-based label.
"Since our childhood in suburban L.A., we've been fans of Vans and own too many pairs to count!" they explained. "Vans is one of the iconic American brands and we liked the idea of infusing this bit of American style into the house of KENZO."
