Vans and Stüssy aren’t looking ahead to the summer, they’re finishing spring strong. Collaborating to produce the Stüssy x Vans Spring 2014 Collection, the brands represent their rich heritage in California. Both Vans and Stüssy were born in the Golden State, and each has continued to embody the distinct So Cal aesthetic even since going worldwide. As a tribute to their roots in skate and street fashion alike, the two utilize prints from the ’80s and ’90s on classic Vans silhouettes. Stüssy’s original Tom Tom print, Bones print, and 8 Ball print are stuck onto the Style 36 LX, Era LX, and Sk8-Hi LX in black and white bases with bright hints of color. Going for $65-85, watch for all three takes to drop in June at select Stüssy and Vans retailers, worldwide.
