Vault by Vans joins forces with Palm Angels Founder and Creative Director, Francesco Ragazzi to pay homage to skate culture. The three-piece capsule is a representation of a design approach that celebrates freedom and individuality all grounded in skate culture. The Vault by Vans x Palm Angels collaboration will launch on September 27 exclusively via Palm Angels followed by a global release for select Vault by Vans retailers on October 1.

Palm Angels fosters a liberated way of being, free from constructs, glorifying the uniqueness of individuals and a personal approach to life, since its beginning. The skateboarding scene has always been a primary reference for the brand, with roots grounded in images shot by Francesco Ragazzi and published in 2014, in Venice beach in Los Angeles.

Palm Angels started with a photography book and Vans was already there. I took a picture of a guy skating in Venice beach, wearing the most vintage Vans Sk8-Hi I had ever seen and since then, the idea of Palm Angels collaborating with Vans has always been in my mind. It’s now finally reality. With this collection I wanted to recreate exactly that same image: few models with a vintage feeling and a contemporary take“, says Francesco Ragazzi, founder and Creative Director of Palm Angels.

The collection is curated from meticulously chosen materials that are featured on the Sk8-Hi VLT LX, Sk8- Mid VLT LX, and the Old Skool LX. Each style has been reinterpreted with the Palm Angels codes: red, grey, white and black, with the Palm Angels logo appearing on the side of the shoes, recreating the iconic Vans Sidestripe. An old-school touch occurs in the images of the campaign, where used and consumed sneakers portray a story of dramatic jumps and movements on the skateboard, capturing the effortless style and culture.

The Palm Angels x Vault by Vans collaboration will launch on September 27th exclusively on palmangels.com and in selected Palm Angels store worldwide.

Beginning October 1st, the capsule will be available at select Vault by Vans retailers worldwide.
