Spring is all about eye-catching patterns and colorful palettes. While we're pretty focused on retaining heat in our all-black knits right now, we take comfort in planning the bright pieces we'll don once the snow melts. Vans just made this a little easier with the latest installment of its collaboration with London-based fashion house Liberty Art Fabrics.
Last season, Liberty lent its paisley print to Vans' classic lace-ups and a cosmological touch to its cult slip-ons. And, once again, with Liberty providing the palette and Vans the canvas, they are breathing new life to two classic sneaker silhouettes — just as we're starting to think about our seasonal wardrobe.
The new collection boasts all the eye-catching elements we crave out of a good springtime shoe. You can go down the sartorial rabbit hole with an Alice in Wonderland-inspired lace-up that features some of Lewis Carroll's characters at tea time. Or, cope with the fresh coat of snow on the ground by slipping into a tropical paradise by way of a floral sneaker. Even the pattern-shy can add an unexpected spring to their step with a more subtle monochromatic flower print and black-and-white deco pattern.
