Vault by Vans partners with Los Angeles-based fashion label Goodfight for a collection epitomized by a time where individuals “grow up” and form their discovered family. Inspired by Eastern culture prep school uniforms and classic American West Coast fashion staples, the collection reflects the brand’s multifaceted identity coupled with nostalgia.
The high school experience can often unify individuals through shared moments or grow our personas through defining trials. Goodfight used that powerful time in life to draw together different ideas and emotions for the approach of the Vault by Vans collection.
In reflection of their own multifaceted, cultural identity, the brand’s idea was to reinterpret the iconic image of Eastern culture prep school uniforms through classic Western culture fashion staples. The result was something “new”—partly drawn from referential experience, partly born from fantasy.
The assortment of apparel and footwear was designed for all and emphasizes the limitless creativity found in youth. In the same vein, the orchid was chosen as a motif for its incredible, paradoxical nature. The collection is fronted by the OG Style 93 LX with removeable orchid blossom clips. The Mary Jane style shoe, available in sizing for all genders, is complemented by a four-piece apparel offering consisting of a letterman jacket with custom patches for DIY application, satin camp collar shirt and co-branded tee shirts.
The Vault by Vans x Goodfight collection is available August 24 at goodfight.shop and Goodfight’s flagship store and will be followed by a global release on August 25 on vans.eu and at select Vault by Vans retailers.
