Last month, we revealed that Vans was classing things up with the Vans MoMA collab, which featured influence from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Now, part two of this partnership has dropped, which features inspiration from the works of Jackson Pollock, Lyubov Popova and Edvard Munch.
Speaking about the range, Vans Head of Global Footwear Design for Lifestyle Footwear, Angie Dita, said:
“Our collaboration with MoMA is a true partnership that involved working together to select both the works and footwear to ensure an authentic connection between the art and the canvas footwear models we chose.”
Munch’s “The Scream” (1895) symbolises the angst and “infinite scream of nature”. A print of this iconic composition stretches across the canvas panels of the Vans Era and makes us want to scream in delight.
Pollock’s “One: Number 31, 1950” (1950) is all about action and expressionism, and this comes across beautifully in the over-the-top application on top of the canvas and sidewalls.
Popova’s love for colour, movement and deconstruction are all present in this interpretation of “Untitled” (1917). It’s applied to the Vans Sk8-Hi, translating the avant-garde vision and dynamism of the artist’s work.
