Vault by Vans x TWOTHIRDS Collaboration

Vault-by-Vans-x-TWOTHIRDS-Collection_pairs

RELEASE DATE: June 2015
MSRP: $75-$100

This June, Vault by Vans partners with TWOTHIRDS to create an eco-conscious collection under the premium label. Inspired by surf culture and a deep affinity for the ocean, the Vault by Vans x TWOTHIRDS collaboration brings forth a four-piece assortment of Vans footwear styles with a sustainable message carried in each color-up. Based in Barcelona, TWOTHIRDS’ namesake comes from the notion that two-thirds of our planet is covered by ocean. TWOTHIRDS follows the “cradle-to-cradle” strategy with two product lines: TWOTHIRDS RECYCLED features recycled and recyclable items, and TWOTHIRDS ORGANIC with organic and biodegradable products. This capsule features three prints handpicked from TWOTHIRDS’ archive of fabrics. Starting off with the Sk8-Hi Reissue LX, Vans’ iconic high-top silhouette exhibits the TWOTHIRDS of the Planet is Water pattern on each quarter panel. The top of the Sk8-Hi Reissue LX is a lighter blue, representing sky, and below it darker blue waves represent the ocean, to communicate the fact that two-thirds of the planet is water. Moving onto the low-top selection, the TWOTHIRDS Fish Swarm motif can be seen on the Authentic LX lace-up as well as the Classic Slip-On LX and relates to the brand’s love for aquatic life. The TWOTHIRDS Polka Drops imagery covers the Era LX in an arrangement that highlights water droplets in an allover polka dot-styled configuration. Following TWOTHIRDS’ principles, the shoes are made with water-based inks and recycled soles; every pair comes with a hangtag describing this message. Each colorway in this capsule is dedicated to one TWOTHIRDS Sentinel in an effort to generate awareness of the particular sphere of activity they impact as individuals making a difference. A TWOTHIRDS Sentinel is someone who puts their talent and passion to the task of protecting and preserving our oceans. The Vault by Vans x TWOTHIRDS collaboration is dedicated to National Geographic Society explorer-in-residence Dr. Syliva A. Earle (Sk8-Hi Reissue LX), Danish artist Emil Kozak (Authentic LX), German surf icon Angelo Schmitt (Classic Slip-On LX) and French photographer/marine biologist Cedric Bihr (Era LX).The Vault by Vans x TWOTHIRDS Collection retails from $75 to $100 USD and releases this June at select boutique accounts.
