In a collection that reflects 90’s nostalgia and reinvents some of Vans’ most quintessential footwear and apparel pieces, Sandy Liang has once again partnered with the iconic brand for her third collection.
Inspired by her deeply personal connection to New York City and childhood throwbacks, the Lower East-Side NY fashion designer has placed her signature 90’s-inspired stamp on a new head-to-toe revamp of Vans staples.
Sandy Liang is known for her unique grandma fashion, with sport femme, nostalgia and humour being the main influences for her newest Vans collab. Covered in floral designs, lace trimmings and graphic prints, the collection is a nod to Sandy’s own dedication to 90’s fashion.
This season’s release includes a retro-reworking of Vans classics like the Sk8-Hi Platform 2.0.
Meanwhile, Sandy debuts a brand new silhouette for Vans, the Sk8-Hi Tapered Modular, a hi-top with a new removable outsole unit. The footwear collection is complimented by Sandy’s re-interpretation of classic Vans’ apparel such as the Authentic Chino.
The Vans X Sandy Liang Collection will officially release and be available across selected stores from January 28th 2022.
