Vans launches a Vincent van Gogh sneakers and clothing collection

TL;DR – Vans meet Van Gogh.

What does Vincent van Gogh and skate brand Van have in common?

Nothing… until the recent Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection launching today August 3.

The brand in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam has launched a limited-editon series inspired by the Dutch Vincent van Gogh and features some of the artist’s most iconic artworks.

Vans x Van Gogh Museum – Authentic -SG$99

The collection features sneakers, t-shirts, and jackets that have been printed with some of the prolific artist’s most recognisable paintings, such as Skull (1887), Almond Blossom (1890), Sunflowers (1889) and van Gogh’s Self-Portrait as a Painter (1887-1888).  The designers at Vans also tried their best to mimic the post-impressionist painter’s distinct brush strokes and handwriting. Every item from the collection will also include a special hangtag that highlight historical facts behind each piece of Vincent Van Gogh’s art.
