A Closer Look at the Vans Van Gogh Collection

Vans formed a collaboration with the master post-impressionist artist, world-famous Vincent Van Gogh to develop a new line of footwear and apparel. The life and the work of the late artist are portrayed through the artistic styling of the Vans Van Gough X collection. The brand partnered with the Van Gogh Museum staff to identify and embody some of his most famous works and continue them forward with the preservation of the legacy that he left behind for the betterment of the generations to come behind him. For each pair sold, a portion of the proceeds will be directed to the Van Gogh Museum. The collection features Skull, Van Gogh’s famed self-portrait, Sunflowers, Blossom, and Almond as inspirations. Here is a closer look at the Vans Van Gogh X collection.
