Hayashi apparently took his inspiration from Native American goods and vintage Italian footwear. Both provide the kind of detail often overlooked in mass produced fashion today. The Taka Hayashi Vans are set for release in April 2010. The wait almost seems unbearable.
Implications - I sure know that the use of varying textiles within the Vans Vault collection is going to appeal to consumers come the Spring 2010 season. The Taka Hayashi range is going to be a fun addition to the fashion scene during the spring months.
