Following the September debut collaboration, Vans and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) are gearing up to drop the second instalment of footwear and apparel with takes inspiration from impactful works of art by artists Edvard Munch, Jackson Pollock and Lybov Popova.
Edvard Munch, whose best-known work, ‘The Scream 1895’, captures the “infinite scream of nature” and angst. A print version of this work has been carefully captured on each of the canvas panels of the Vans Era in a repeat pattern that can also be found on the Old Skool backpack, short sleeve tee and pullover hoodie.
Jackson Pollock was a pioneer of action painting, flinging and pouring ropes of paint onto his surfaces in a decidedly physical way. Pollock’s ‘One: Number 31, 1950’ has transformed the Vans Authentic with an all-over application atop the canvas and across the sidewalls and is complemented by a digitally printed short sleeve button-down and camper style hat.
Popova approached painting as an act of “construction” using colour, line and shape to create dimensional work that expressed movement and dynamism. For the Vans MoMA collaboration, Popova’s ‘Untitled, 1917’ has been applied to the Vans Sk8-Hi using each medial and lateral side to translate her avant-garde vision across the hi-top model which is found on complementing fleece and ringer tee options.
The second wave of Vans and MoMA styles will be available from the 11th of November at Vans retail stores and select retail locations where Vans are sold.
