Celebrated for his vibrant paintings, as well as his immaculate sculptures and designs, Murakami makes his favorite Vans silhouette, the Classic Slip-On – which happens to be the shoe he wears in his studio every day – the focus of his next project. In addition to footwear, the Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami collaboration brings forth an artistic assortment of apparel and skate decks for release in late June.
The Vault by Vans x Takashi Murakami collection features a limited-edition series of skateboard decks. The three prints of the boards are multi-colored skull, multi-colored smiling flowers and a Portrait of Takashi Murakami on blue. The top deck artwork for all three is the vans Vans x Takashi Murakami collection logo printed on wood.
