The Vans x ALYX collaboration for FW17 has arrived. The creative director of ALYX, Matthew Williams shares a little about the release:
"For this release we focused on the history of Vans and referenced past silhouettes that have since been retired. It was an incredible experience to go through the archives and reintroduce these styles with our own ALYX details.”
This collaboration is reviving silhouettes that haven't been made for over two decades, including the OG Style 138 LX, Authentic Convertible 43 LX and the OG Style 29 LX. ALYX’s signature details are embedded in the designs, such as lighter caps, special fabrications and logo tipped shoe laces.
