Vans Classics x Carhartt WIP “Hickory Stripes” Summer ’15 Capsule Collection
Carhartt WIP and Vans have teamed up on a special capsule collection inspired by the summer season. Using the iconic Carhartt WIP Hickory Stripe fabric as a base, the série features a Vans Classics Chukka, a Classics Slip-on along with a matching bucket hat and totebag. All shoes and garments are using a Hickory pattern consisting of navy, turquoise and white stripes combined with fluorescent orange lining. The Vans Classics x Carhartt WIP “Hickory Stripes ” S/S ’15 Capsule Collection is now available on all Carhartt Wip Stores and on their online boutique.
To accompany the release, director and skater David Couliau has created a short, fun film to showcase the collaboration. Shot in Belleville, a popular neighbourhood in Paris, the story features three skaters from the Carhartt WIP and Vans teams, (Joseph Biais, Denis Lynn and Jonas Skroder) providing an ironic insight into the unexpected consequences of downhill skating. You can find the three short clips on the Carhartt WIP Instagram.
