Vans has been on a fashion kick these days. Fresh off their collab with globally-conscious LA brand Della, the SoCal lifestyle label has tapped the latest crop of It girls for the relaunch of their spring 2014 apparel collection, including Silver Lake-based artist and feline fan Langley Fox, plus NYC model-slash creative types like designers Annabelle Dexter Jones and Luz Pavon, actress Georgia Ford (yep, daughter of Harrison) and photog Coco Young.
Inspired by the brand's signature surf- and skate-ready vibes, the line is comprised of graphic tees, tops, dresses and more, all with the "down-to-earth, easy-going type of girl [in mind, which is] exactly what I'm going for," Fox says (check, double-check). As part of the campaign, Vans sat down with their muses to chat about the subject of "Performance", revealing such tidbits like Fox's first concert ("Christina Aguilera and Destiny's Child") and more. After the jump, check out the full Chrissie Miller-directed clip.
