Fresh off joining forces with Disney, Vans is rolling out yet another fuzzy feelings-inducing collab. This time, it's Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami, who'll be emblazoning his signature happy flowers and more on the iconic SoCal brand's gear.
The range features Murakami's fashion-faved pop illustrations on Vans's classic slip-ons, tees, and skate decks ($75 and up). Take a peek at the merch in the gallery above and shop the collection online and in select LA stores, including at Barneys in Beverly Hills, Opening Ceremony, Undefeated, and others, when it drops next Saturday, June 27th.
