California-based Vans has called upon the creative talents of Japanese artist Yusuke Hanai for its surf-inspired collection. While Vans has planted itself as one of the major brands within skate culture, its latest collection is an ode to the popular water sport.

Hanai brings a freshness to the capsule collection that fits the lineup's sunny theme. The collection brings forth style, comfort and artistic aesthetics that are not only pleasing to the eye but also quite cultural. Created for the Spring 2016 season, the Vans x Yusuke Hanai collection features board shorts, reversible bucket hats, slip-on sneakers, tank tops, t-shirts and more.

The surf-inspired collection celebrates creative expression and art by making heavy use of surf culture influences.
