Vans Vault and Engineered Garments teame up this fall for a special collection, combining Vans skate heritage with the refined approach of Daiki Suzuki's popular label.
The collection includes three colorways of the OG Classic Slip-on LX, each utilizing a "positive-negative" concept with alternating smooth leather and unfinished hide surfaces. The design language of Engineered Garments also comes into play with a special OG Authentic LX, arriving in both olive reversed sateen and Sunforger cotton canvas.
The Engineered Garments x Vans Vault Collection will release exclusively at Nepenthes New York on Tuesday, September 10. Vans Vault is celebrating the occasion with a pop-up shop at Nepenthes, along with an opening reception featuring art by Shin Murayama.
