Kenzo to Debut Collaboration With Vans

Apr 18 2012 - 9:57am

>> Kenzo [1] creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon [2] have created a line of shoes for Vans that will be released this Summer.

The unisex shoes, priced around $130, will be sold in three staggered releases at Kenzo and Opening Ceremony stores — one in May, one in June, and one in July. The first edition fuses the red, blue, and green prints from Kenzo's Spring 2012 collection [3] with the design for the Vans Era, a classic lace-up skate shoe.

Lim and Leon, the team behind Opening Ceremony, told Vogue UK [4] that they've worn Vans for years and "liked the idea of infusing this bit of American style into the house of Kenzo."
