Today, Karl Lagerfield who is the head designer at Chanel and Fendi just launched his collaboration with Vans. The collection features the “Off the Wall” classic design with a chic and trendy twist. It features over twelve items that you can wear now such as jackets, sweatshirts, t-shirts, backpacks, hats as well as shoes. Keep scrolling to find where to get yours today.
Karl integrates his Chanel taste with quilted paneled slip-on and high-top sneakers as well as a backpack. This collection has a price range starting at $30 and goes up to $300. The apparel in the line keeps things simple, with a black-and-white theme. Each item has a size chart for men and women. Angie Dita quoted, “working in close partnership, our teams designed this collection to reflect the unique histories of our respective brands. As a tribute to Karl Lagerfield’s fashion DNA, we highlighted elements like boucle fabric and K-quilted stitching, and we reinterpreted Vans’ signature checkerboard pattern with Karl’s cameo silhouette motif”.
Whether you’re planning on sporting some of these items to school or just on the streets there is an option for everyone.
The Leather Backpack is a staple piece in the collection. It features a quilting design on the front of the bag as well as two zipper compartments for storage. This backpack has a steep price tag of $300. Van’s Sk8-Hi Laceless Platform Sneaker is on-trend and versatile for both men and women and is $150. Lastly, the Slip-On Sneaker combines Vans Classic style with high fashion designs. This piece is the lowest priced quilted item at just $110.
The Checkered Collection brings back Vans signature print. Its Slip-On Checkered Sneaker features a rubber sole for traction in case of bad weather and a comfortable interior. Plus, the Pullover Hoodie is perfect for fall with a unique touch of checker on the sleeves and sides. The checkered sneaker and hoodie both have a price tag of $100. Lastly, the Dugout Baseball Cap and Boyfriend T-Shirt are a budget friendly option if you want to snag a piece from the collection.
The Bomber Jacket is my favorite from the collaboration. It is an excellent layering option for fall and the contrasting colors will have you standing out. Pair this jacket with the Logo Ringer Tee and the Old Skool Laceless Sneakers for a perfect casual look.
