After seeing the works of Van Gogh and Frida Kahlo become patterns and textures for Vans garments and sneakers, the American skate shoe company announced a collaboration with one of the most popular and talked about contemporary artists. This is how the Damien Hirst x Vault by Vans collection was created to celebrate art and to inspire nonconformists, with the participation of the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
The capsule collection, which will be released on December 6 exclusively at Vault by Vans in New York and inside the hotel at 4321 Flamingo Road in Las Vegas, consists of 6 sneakers, 3 Sk8-Hi and 3 Slip-On, on which some of the works and elements characteristic of Damien Hirst, such as butterflies, colored dots, stains of color and skulls will be reproduced.
The artist, enthusiastic about the collaboration, commented:
“It’s fabulous to be collaborating with Palms and Vans on this project. I’ve always loved Vans and the artwork works brilliantly on these shoes. I can’t wait for people to see them. It’s amazing for an artist to have the sort of freedom Palms and Vans have given me.”
