Liberty x Vans

American footwear brand Vans has joined forces with London based Liberty Art Fabrics for a limited collection of beautifully printed plimsolls.

Established in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty, the Liberty store enticed a society intoxicated by Japanese culture with an impressive collection of ornaments, fabric and objets d’art. Liberty was likened to an Eastern Bazaar, and it came to be an important meeting place for artists. Liberty was one of the first to embrace the new Art Nouveau style in the mid 1890s and became known for intricate textiles. These traditions are still at the heart of the company today, with in-house teams creating beautiful collections of scarves, accessories and fabrics (Liberty Art Fabrics).

Vans was established in 1966 in Anaheim California by Paul Van Doren. The Van Doren Rubber Company as it was first known was unique in its manufacturing capabilities. On the very first day of opening, 12 customers purchased shoes, which were made that day and ready to pick up in the afternoon. The Vans #44 deck shoes that are now known as the Authentic were born. Through the years Vans’ designs have evolved, and they draw inspiration from all aspects of contemporary culture in their collaborations while keeping their signature look and chic Californian vibe.

The Vans x Liberty collection celebrates the heritage of two brands with an appreciation for high quality, modern footwear.

The Liberty Multi-Floral Classic Slip-On is available in a beautiful colour palette ideal for the summer months.
