VANS - SK8 LOW X CIVILIST - NAVY / SNOW
Vans and the Berlin-based skateshop Civilist have team up with the artist Carsten Fock to create a new collection of shoes.
This line, which is in homage to the city of Berlin, includes the Sk8-Low in three color combinations - an exclusive to Civilist - designed with the help of Carsten Fock. The artist, famous for his illustrations and paintings inspired by the world of fashion, pop culture, politics and society, has been commissioned to trace, in pencil, the letters that have subsequently been embroidered and stamped on the suede of the Sk8-Low. The collection nods to the traveling community with the message "Say Goodbye to the City" embroidered on the side of the shoes, while the inner lining says "Back to the Roots" and the text "I once was in Berlin" decorating the whole box. Two contrasting black and white designs - the first, exclusive to Civilist - share the limelight with another in subtle navy blue.
