Vault by Vans Presents: Vans Curated by Our Legacy. Vans and Our Legacy partner to create a footwear and apparel capsule inspired by Californian hardcore punk culture. This spring, Vault by Vans collaborates with Stockholm-based menswear powerhouse, Our Legacy to create a 10-piece footwear and 12-piece apparel capsule collection inspired by Californian hardcore punk culture. The offerings include Vans’ classic footwear silhouettes in bold orange, black and white colorways and timeless Vans apparel basics including a pullover sweatshirt and graphic tees that convey a striking blend of street culture and high quality design.
Our Legacy co-founder, Jockum Hallin, grew up in Sweden in the early 90’s in a world of do-it-yourself culture that exposed him to skateboarding, touring with hardcore bands, releasing records and sleeping on floors. Hallin’s spirited attitude during this time developed into creative endeavors across music and fashion, all of which were driven by Hallin’s affinity toward the subversive culture that was burgeoning in the States.
The Vault by Vans x Our Legacy collection is directly inspired by Hallin’s interpretation of Californian skate, surf and hardcore punk culture in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. The collection executes minimal and monochromatic design elements, reduced in detailing and colors, focusing on shapes, silhouettes, materials and fabric qualities. Symbolic subcultural references are seen throughout the collection including “positive mental attitude” (PMA), “use your head,” “all ages” and “Orange County.”
