Bianca Chandôn x Vans Collection Goes All-In on the Aged-Look Aesthetic
Known as one of the marquee collaborative kingpins in the sneaker industry, Vault By Vans has linked up with countless brands and designers over the years. Most recently, the Californian-based company has tapped big names like KITH, BAPE, and Joe Freshgoods to rework the brand’s most iconic silhouettes in their own unique styling. Now they have enlisted the help of Alex Olson and his Bianca Chandôn imprint across four distressed, worn, and aged-look releases.
Opting for a pre-loved feel, the four-piece collection plays heavily into Olson’s fandom of anti-fashion movements, resulting in a beat-up aesthetic that the former skater knows well. The Sk8-Hi Reissue VLT LX, Old Skool VLT LX, Authentic VLT LX, and Classic Slip-on VLT LX are included in the upcoming capsule, each with star prints that replace the heritage checkerboard, heavily-worn-look midsoles, and distressed uppers, and Bianca Chandôn” text on the lateral midsole wall styled in a handwritten font.
