Ifyou’re looking to add some edge to your minimalist monochromes this summer, look no further than our go-to brand & Other Stories and their playful collaboration with Vans. The pair have joined forces to create a cool collection of shoes and a small capsule of ready-to-wear pieces. Featuring the classic Vans slip-on in chic monochrome and preppy beige and mint, our favorites are the black and white polka dotted Dalmatian version.
Footwear Designer at & Other Stories Nicole Wilson says “It’s been super interesting to work with Vans’ classic styles and interpret them in an & Other Stories way…Clashing the history of skater shoes with a more feminine approach, and using colors and materials inspired by our spring ’15 collection.”
Both brands are no strangers to the co-lab, & Other Stories has flirted with a list of creatives such as London designer Richard Braqo, singer Lykke Li and most recently a second stint with leather goods brand Clare Vivier. Vans too are investing in long term partnerships with the likes of big fashion players Kenzo. & Other Stories’ simple yet sophisticated style of relaxed tailoring is the perfect based for your new season Vans. Release your inner Cruella De Vil and go for the silk Dalmatian printed tennis dress as worn by 86 year old Daphne Selfie, who started modelling in 1949 and is the current face of this very cute collaboration.
