Psychedelic Sneaker Series

Vans Vault Decorated Its Sneakers with Iconic Art from Robert Williams

— July 19, 2016 — Fashion
Vans Vault is set to release a limited edition sneaker series in celebration of its 50th anniversary that pays tribute to iconic alternative artist Robert Williams.

The collection includes a number of different skater-style shoes as well as select apparel -- all of which incorporates the cartoonist's psychedelic work. The three Robert Williams paintings that are adapted to the sneakers are 'Flaming Cobras,' 'Malfeasance' and 'Jalapeña.' The artwork is shown on the upper and soles of the shoes, for a design that makes clear its collaboration, which is also shown by Robert Williams' signature that appears near the heel of each product.

Apparel includes a number of graphic t-shirts that feature more of Robert Williams' iconic creations, as well as a drawstring bag and even a 'Fender Stratocaster Guitar.' The limited edition collection can only be obtained from a select few Vans stores.
Trend Themes
1. Art-inspired Fashion - By incorporating iconic artwork onto fashion items, companies can create unique and highly sought-after collaborations.
2. Limited Edition Collections - Releasing limited edition items can create hype and exclusivity around a brand, leading to increased demand and sales.
3. Psychedelic Designs - The use of unique and eye-catching designs, such as psychedelic art, can attract a younger and trendier audience to a brand.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - Fashion brands can collaborate with artists to create unique and highly sought-after items, leading to increased sales and brand recognition.
2. Art - Artists can collaborate with fashion brands to bring their art to a wider audience and create new revenue streams.
3. Music - Music brands can take inspiration from the collaboration between Vans and Fender by creating limited edition collections of instruments and accessories featuring iconic artists and designs.
