The latest Luxe by Vans collection, available starting from August 2011, were inspired by vintage baroque style wallpapers, like those particular ones you might have seen at your aunt's house. The three models of the collection Cydney, Cedar and Bailie Boot, are clearly for fashion victims, rather than skaters, who crave iconic and unique creations.
The Luxe by Vans designs also include leather inserts, waxed shoe-laces, rubber soles and golden branding.
Implications - Through continuous, surprising and creative design innovation, the Vans brand has become synonymous with innovation. This trend shows how vintage, old-fashioned designs can be revamped and elevated to "iconic" levels.
