COMME des GARCONS x Vans Vault Authentic

Bringing back their chaotic graphic masterworks, with a past release sitting only a few months behind, the eclectic, Kawakubo-helmed imprint COMME des GARCONS is reuniting with the likes of Vans to produce a Vault Authentic in a tooling of all-over-print chaos. Much like their previous iterations, which opted for a base of white instead of this forthcoming black, a mosaic of typography finds itself emblazoned on the canvas upper in styles that vary from elegant to vandalistic. Instead of emblazoning their own logo throughout, a few iconic slogans from the Japanese label’s deeply rooted heritage come through, boasting “my energy comes from my freedom” and “live free with strong will” in unison with the accompanying wallets. Check out a detailed look below.
