ALYX Continues Collaboration with Vans, Reviving Three Classic Styles for Fall
"For this release we focused on the history of Vans and referenced past silhouettes that have since been retired. It was an incredible experience to go through the archives and reintroduce these styles with our own ALYX details." says Matthew Williams, ALYX Creative Director.
Each style has been updated with ALYX details including ALYX’s signature lighter caps, logo-tipped shoelaces, as well unique material and color combinations.
