Just in time for spring and Coachella Vans introduces an exclusive women’s apparel and footwear capsule collaboration with Alexandria Cassaniti and her Venice-based brand SUMMER BUMMER, contrasting beach and street style.
Vans D.I.Y aesthetic with SUMMER BUMMER’S hallmark black and white color-block design and graphics is customized into four Vans footwear silhouettes along with the debut of two sportswear-inspired sandals, the Vans Sandalia and Slide-On. The collaboration also features the deconstructed Checkerboard Slip-On SF with retro Vans styling and doodling on the sidewall, while the monochromatic Dazie-Hi has a glow-in-the-dark side-stripe and sidewall.
The collaboration also introduces sportswear apparel with a heavy surf culture influence. Fashioned after a woman’s wetsuit, the zip-front Sum Bum Zip Dress is emblazoned with SUMMER BUMMER graphics along the color-blocked side panels, while the Sum Bum Tote takes the form of a traditional bucket bag and uses Cassaniti’s signature neoprene along the bottom with a Vans canvas upper and rope straps. The Sum Bum Tank with graphic-printed hem and matching Sum Bum Cap round out the collection.
The Vans x SUMMER BUMMER collection is currently available in stores and online with prices starting at $40 for the slide and $75 for the Dazie-Hi Tops and apparel from $34.50 to $44.50 with cap $26.00 and tote $49.50 dollars. www.vans.com/surf
