Patchwork Satin Sneakers

Vans Introduces Its New Satin Patchwork Series Inspired by DIY

— May 24, 2018 — Fashion
Vans introduces the new Satin Patchwork pack inspired by DIY work as a part of its seasonal Spring offerings. The pack reworks three of the label's most popular footwear models accented with design details done through mend and repair techniques. The silhouettes include a reimagined Authentic shoe, the Classic Slip-Ons, and the Sk8-Hi sneakers. Each one still preserves its signature design aesthetic but is elevated with satin patchwork details.

The Satin Patchwork pack boasts premium suede and textile construction all over with patching details across the heel counter and vamp. On top of the satin patches, there are embellished floral accents. On the Slip-On and Sk8-Hi models, there are additional checkered paneling details incorporated. The series is set to drop in June and will be available at Vans locations, online and at select retailers.
Trend Themes
1. Satin Patchwork Footwear - Opportunity for retail companies to tap into the growing demand for unique and personalized designs in footwear by offering satin patchwork options in their product lineup.
2. DIY Design Inspiration - Opportunity for creative industries, such as arts and crafts stores, to capitalize on the trend by providing resources and workshops that teach consumers how to incorporate patchwork and repair techniques into their own designs.
3. Embellished Accents - Opportunity for fashion accessories companies to explore the use of embellished floral accents and checkered paneling details on their products, bringing a touch of customization and uniqueness to their offerings.
Industry Implications
1. Footwear - Opportunity for footwear companies to introduce satin patchwork designs to their product lines, appealing to consumers looking for stylish and individualistic options.
2. Retail - Opportunity for retail companies to curate collections that cater to the demand for DIY-inspired fashion, providing customers with the materials and tools needed to create their own patchwork designs.
3. Fashion Accessories - Opportunity for fashion accessories companies to incorporate floral accents and checkered paneling details into their designs, creating visually striking and customizable products.
