Since 1875, Liberty Art Fabrics has pushed the envelope of printed material design from London to fashion hubs across the world. This dedication, combined with its rich history connected Vans with the legendary company for a collaborative pack of high quality and premium style kicks.
To kick-off the new partnership, Vans and Liberty launch a collection for fall, showcasing six Liberty Art Fabrics on two heritage Vans styles — the Era and Authentic.
Liberty is famously known for their archives of countless floral fabrics. So, Vans’ designers had the opportunity to tap into rare prints, creating a limited edition collection, which boasts two paisley options covering the Era and the Authentic-inspired by an original Liberty scarf.
Vans says the paisleys were cut straight from the stock fabric, which varied the placement of the pattern, making them one-of-a-kind. An abstract, printed mountain landscape in army green is featured on the Era, while the Authentic features a rich pink leaves print and a colorful pattern of floral and birds. The final style of the collection gets a special treatment that is unique to Vans. A classic Liberty floral is combined with Vans’ iconic checkerboard in a deep navy that pops the red and blue Liberty print.
The Vans x Liberty Art Fabrics Collection retails for $60, and arrives this month globally at Vans retail locations, at Vans.com/liberty, and Liberty of London on Regent Street.
